Abdominoplasty Variations San Francisco Bay Area

We are wrapping up our Tummy Tuck videos this week, with more of today’s latest variations in Abdominoplasty. We will review Floating Belly Button Tummy Tucks and Fleur-de-Lys Tummy Tucks.

Floating Belly Button Tummy Tuck

Floating Belly Button Tummy Tucks are for those needing more than a Mini Tummy Tuck, but not quite a full Tummy Tuck. This Abdominoplasty does not make an incision around the belly button. Instead, the belly button “floats” downwards along with the skin. This is useful when there is a little loose skin above the belly button, that would not be treated with a mini tummy tuck. The important word is little. If you have a lot of loose skin, the belly button would float all the way off!

Fleur-de-Lys Tummy Tuck

Fleur-de-Lys Tummy Tucks remove skin at the bottom, like a full Tummy Tuck. Additionally, skin is also removed vertically, from the middle of the belly. This technique is most often used for post bariatric, and other massive weight loss patients. It allows for the maximal reduction in excess skin. With most massive weight loss patients, a Fleur-de-Lys Tummy Tuck is more than is needed, but when it is necessary, it is a great technique.
