When patients receive a partial tummy tuck, they’re getting excess fat removed, loose skin trimmed away, and more. The muscles of the lower abdomen are tightened, making the area look toned and fit.
After the patient has been given anesthesia, a horizontal incision will be made in the lower abdominal area, between the belly button and the pubic hairline. This partial tummy tuck incision is shorter than that of the full tummy tuck and will not reach either of the patient’s hips.
