Mini Tummy Tuck
The 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.
Electing a mini tummy tuck rather than a full tummy tuck gives patients the option of shortening their recovery periods by treating smaller areas of concern rather than the entire abdomen. Many patients who experience slight skin elasticity or weakened lower abdominal muscles often choose the mini tummy tuck to treat their unique concerns and obtain the results they desire.
