TYPE 5 REDUNDANCY EXTENDED TUMMY TUCK

In Type 5, the abdominal redundancy includes the area between the belly button and upper border of the mons pubis, but on the sides it extends beyond the iliac crests (the bony prominences of the hip bones that are felt below the flanks), and sometimes approaches the outer parts of the buttocks.  It is usually associated with different degrees of localized fat accumulation (adiposity) in different areas, as well as different degrees of laxity of the abdominal muscles requiring treatment.  This type of redundancy usually requires an EXTENDED TUMMY TUCK along with LIPOSUCTION as needed.  In our practice this is the most common form of abdominoplasty that is carried out.  The sample photo below is an example.

Please see our Tummy Tuck Photo Gallery for many more examples.
