When a tummy tuck is performed and incision is usually placed on the horizontal line over the stomach from one hip to the other. Sometimes a smaller incision is made vertically to extend upwards horizontally from the incision. This procedure has been given the name the inverted
'T' incision. This type of incision may also be called an 'anchor pattern tummy tuck' and it will offer the patient the benefit of being left with just one small scar.
Many surgeons like the inverted T incision because it means that they can pull in the patients waist to the middle of their stomach. This gives a tightened and slimmed down appearance and it also offers additional skin tightening on the horizontal line giving an improved profile. The original tummy tuck procedure is only able to tighten the skin vertically with very minimal tightening horizontally.
A surgeon may well recommend this procedure if it is found that the patient has an excessively large amount of skin below their belly button while there is insufficient excess skin above the belly button for a tummy tuck to be done in the traditional way. A small vertical incision is balanced by a longer incision horizontally that is made lower on the patient’s torso. This ensures that the scarring from the operation cannot be seen when the patient is in underwear or in swimwear.
A tummy tuck using the inverted ‘T’ is commonly used for patients who have dropped a significant amount of weight - in the region of over 100 pounds or more. These patients may also need to have a buttock or thigh lift or a breast or underarm lift so that their appearance appears uniform. These procedures can be done at the same time or separately.
