Your Washington, D.C. tummy tuck surgery will be tailored to meet your specific needs. Depending on your unique contours and the issues obscuring your abdominal area, Dr. Roberta Gartside may recommend either the full or mini tummy tuck procedure. Which option is right for you is best determined during your tummy tuck consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.
Full Tummy Tuck
For a full tummy tuck, Washington, D.C. plastic surgeon Dr. Gartside will make an incision across the abdomen from hip to hip. An additional incision around the belly button may also be necessary to address loose skin in the upper stomach area. This option is necessary when addressing larger amounts of sagging skin and can produce remarkable results.
Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck may require a hip-to-hip incision, but will not include an incision around the belly button. This option is ideal for women with only a small amount of loose skin around the abdominal area. Mini tummy tuck surgery does not address sagging skin or excess fat above the belly button.
Dr. Gartside is an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon who takes time to personalize each procedure she offers. During your Washington, D.C. tummy tuck consultation she can assess your frame and help you determine which technique will best help you reach your goals.
