As a top Naples plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Paul Gardner is a double board-certified cosmetic surgeon specializing in the mini tummy tuck operation. A mini tummy tuck is a less invasive approach to the traditional tummy tuck. Mini tummy tuck surgery is reserved for patients who do not require a full transformation of their abdomen, but rather a refinement. Good candidates for the mini tummy tuck procedure typically suffer from localized fat in the lower abdomen or require less abdominal muscle repair and skin removal than full tummy tuck candidates.
Undergoing a mini tummy tuck rather than a full tummy tuck gives patients the option of shortening their recovery periods and treating smaller areas of concern, as opposed to the entire abdomen. Many patients who experience slight skin elasticity in the skin or weakened lower abdominal muscles often choose a mini tummy tuck to treat their unique concerns and obtain the results they desire.
Patients who wish to undergo mini tummy tuck surgery should seek out Dr. Gardner for his surgical finesse and strong sense of artistry. During a one-on-one consultation, he meets with patients individually to learn about their aesthetic goals and develops a personalized approach to meet patients' specific needs He also explains the procedure in great detail and answers any questions patients may have.
Dr. Gardner has vast experience in performing mini tummy tuck procedures, giving patients beautiful results through pleasant cosmetic surgery experiences. During the procedure, he creates small incisions and gently reshapes the abdomen by removing excess skin and tissue to achieve a flatter, tighter stomach. In many instances, he recommends combining this procedure with liposuction to remove fat deposits along with sagging skin to enhance patients' physiques.
Following a mini tummy tuck, patients typically need one to two weeks of rest before being able to return to their daily schedules. As with all surgical procedures, patients could develop complications during their mini tummy tuck procedure; however, Dr. Gardner lends his eye for detail and unsurpassed surgical talent to every procedure to minimize risk and promote patient health.
Dr. Gardner strives to help all patients improve their appearance and reach their beauty potential. He believes in making patients look like enhanced versions of themselves, not surgically altered or dramatically different. This subtle approach to cosmetic refinement yields stunning, natural-looking results that make patients feel beautiful inside and out.
