If you continue to struggle with loose, excess abdominal skin or a belly pooch—even after maintaining a healthy diet and working out consistently—it may be time to explore your tummy tuck options. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that removes loose, excess skin and fat and tightens the muscles in your lower abdominal area. But there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to tummy tuck surgery. The right tummy tuck procedure for you will depend on your unique concerns, physique, and aesthetic goals.

Your surgeon may discuss some of the tummy tuck options below during your consultation:

  • Mini tummy tuck: Focuses on the lower abdomen only (below the bellybutton).
  • Full tummy tuck: Addresses the upper and lower abdomen by removing excess skin, tightening loose skin, and repairing separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). It is often combined with liposuction to contour the midsection further.
  • Extended tummy tuck: Also called a belt lipectomy, this procedure lifts and contours sagging skin around the abdomen, waist, hips, and upper buttocks.
  • Fleur-de-lis tummy tuck: Removes excessive skin around the midsection that lingers following substantial weight loss or bariatric surgery. It tightens skin both vertically and horizontally.
