Extended Tummy Tuck is like the standard Tummy Tuck but the incision extends from the hips to the back. The Extended Tummy Tuck also helps tighten the waistline.

An extended tummy tuck addresses the excess skin and fat over your abdomen/tummy, sides/flank. The scar is concealed inside the lines of your underwear. It helps get rid of the extra flabby part your waist

  • An extended tummy tuck procedure is quite similar to a regular tummy tuck; 
    • The only difference is the incision that extends from the lower belly and around the hips to the back. 
    • It helps to reduce excess skin and fat on the stomach and between the waist and hips and also helps to tighten the waistline.
