A slim, tight, and toned stomach can have a significant impact on your overall appearance. Dr. Gary F. Horn offers both traditional and mini tummy tuck surgery to patients looking to refine their figure in Paris, London, and Brussels. Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck can eliminate excess fat and sagging skin from the midsection. This procedure can also strengthen muscles that have weakened or separated over time. Dr. Horn is a skilled surgeon with extensive training who can ensure your tummy tuck produces natural-looking results.
How a Traditional Tummy Tuck Differs from a Mini Tummy Tuck
Traditional Tummy Tuck
Illustration depicting incision lines for abdominoplastyA traditional tummy tuck is used to address the abdominal regions both above and below the navel. With this type of comprehensive contouring, Dr. Horn can repair and tighten the tissue in both of these areas. Full tummy tucks also remove larger portions of skin, typically in the area below the navel and above the pubic bone. This makes it ideal for patients who want to eliminate stretch marks and other imperfections. It is important to understand that traditional tummy tucks will result in a larger scar, which typically spans between the hips.
