Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)
This procedure is suitable for both men and women. A mini-tummy tuck procedure removes excess skin and fat associated with weakness in the abdominal wall beneath your belly button. Compared with full Tummy Tuck Surgery, a mini-tummy tuck will leave a much smaller scar and has a significantly shorter down time.
During a mini tummy tuck, a small incision is made below the bikini line. Skin and fat are detached from the muscle, which may itself be tightened. Liposuction may be used to contour the area. Excess skin is removed and then the two skin sections are stitched back together.
Afterwards, you will wear a compression bandage for a few weeks to assist healing. Initial recovery depends on the extent of the procedure, but is generally around one to two weeks, after which you can return to work.
We will help you to decide the best way to achieve the results you want from a mini tummy tuck.
