An extended tummy tuck is a more extensive version of the traditional tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty. It is typically recommended for patients who have excess skin and fat in their abdomen, hips, and back areas.
The extended tummy tuck procedure involves making a horizontal incision along the lower abdomen and a vertical incision extending to the hip bones. This allows the surgeon to remove a larger amount of excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and contour the hips and back. The abdominal muscles are also tightened during the procedure to create a smoother and flatter appearance.
As with any surgical procedure, risks and potential complications are associated with an extended tummy tuck, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, and delayed healing. It's essential to have a thorough consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to determine if you're a good candidate for an extended tummy tuck and to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.
