Tummy Tuck Incision Locations

Published on December 2, 2016 by

A tummy tuck is an incredibly effective and popular procedure for tightening and reshaping the abdominal area to create a more toned and appealing look. Knowing the technical aspects of the surgery, such as where the incisions will be made, will help you to physically and mentally prepare for the process.

In most cases, the main incision for a tummy tuck is made just beneath the hipbone and across the pubic area in order to have access to the entire abdominal region. A secondary incision will typically be made around the navel, depending on how much excess skin and fat needs to be removed. Once the excess skin and fat are gone, the incisions will be closed to create a tighter abdomen.
