With all of the varying techniques for tummy tucking, as well as breast lifting, etc., it can be very confusing to try to understand the who's and what's of it all...
It is very important for you to understand that not all patients will be good candidates for all techniques... we need to match your current appearance and your goals with the technique that is most likely to give you the outcome you want. The only way to do this is through a consultation and an examination.
Choosing a technique based solely on the scar or the perceived diminishment in recovery disability, with less consideration paid to the differences in anticipated aesthetic outcome, will almost certainly lead to your dissatisfaction.
In other words, after surgery, how happy are you going to be if you had the smooth and easy recovery you wanted, but your abdomen STILL doesn't look good to you? Probably not very happy.
I would start by first finding a reputable and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that you like and trust, and discussing your goals and options with them. Remember that the only thing worse than being unhappy with how you look is spending a lot of money, having surgery, and STILL being unhappy with how you look.
