A Hybrid Tummy Tuck is a procedure for a small subset of patients who have muscle separation above as well as below the belly button, but only have loose skin below the umbilicus. If you have loose skin of the upper abdomen, then this is not the right procedure for you. Short scar tummy tucks are often desired by patients. No one wants more scar than they need. But, doing a short scar when you really need a longer scar is what leads to Dog ears. The more loose skin you have, the longer the scar needs to be. Be sure to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and allow them to recommend the best procedure for your situation.
