1. Traditional tummy truck
This traditional tummy tuck method is performed on people with excess skin that is loose and flabby. This usually applies to people who have experienced significant weight loss, women who have had multiple pregnancies. Excess abdominal skin is removed surgically to give the stomach a more flat and contoured appearance.
2. Advanced Abdominal Surgery
Apart from removing excess fat and skin from the stomach, an elongated or lengthened tummy lift (also known as an extended tummy tuck) also removes excess skin and fat from the sides of the waist, thighs, and hips. This type of surgery is best for people with excess skin and fat not only on the stomach but also on the sides and back.
3. Operative abdominal surgery
This procedure requires the removal of more skin than other forms of abdominal procedures. This type of surgery is best for men and women who have lost a lot of weight (over 100 pounds) and have very loose, sagging skin all over their bodies.
4. Mini stomach surgery
This surgical method, also known as a partial tummy tuck, is less invasive than the traditional tummy tuck
