The Tummy Tuck Procedure
There are two main types of tummy tucks: a full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. Both begin with an incision at or above the pubic hairline. In both procedures, excess skin, fat, and other tissue are removed, and abdominal muscles are tightened and held with permanent sutures. A mini or partial tummy tuck provides only tightening below the navel. The incision is smaller and the recovery quicker than for a full tummy tuck.

For both types of procedures, the scar should be low enough that it will be concealed by most clothing, underwear, and bikini bottoms. For tightening through the entire abdominal region with a full tummy tuck, a second incision around the navel is required.
