Reverse Tummy Tuck

Reverse Tummy Tuck (Upper Abdominoplasty): A reverse tummy tuck, also called upper abdominoplasty, focuses on the upper abdomen, above the belly button. It removes excess skin and tightens the muscles in this area to create a smoother, more defined appearance. This procedure is ideal for patients with loose skin or sagging specifically in the upper abdomen.

Smoother, tighter upper abdominal skin
Improved definition in the upper stomach
Can be combined with breast lift for a more comprehensive result
Shorter recovery time compared to traditional tummy tuck

Scarring (usually hidden in the inframammary fold, the crease beneath the breasts)
Potential for complications like infection or bleeding
Costly procedure

Liposuction (may not address loose skin)
Body contouring procedures (may not be as effective)
Exercise and diet (may not achieve desired results)

Recovery Time:
Recovery is typically shorter than a traditional tummy tuck, with restrictions on activity for a few weeks.

A reverse tummy tuck is not suitable for everyone. Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is crucial to determine if this procedure is right for you.
