For patients who have gone through physical changes, such as pregnancy or weight fluctuations, the loss of elasticity in the skin can cause loose skin to develop. A mini tummy tuck, also known as a partial abdominoplasty, is an excellent cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to target the area beneath the abdomen to help achieve a flatter result.
Stubborn fat and excess tissue around the abdomen are a common issue for many patients. This can occur to men and women at just about any age and can be related to aging, lifestyle choices and changes, hormones, and more. Pregnancy and childbirth can also cause extra tissue and loose skin to develop in the lower abdomen and stomach area. In particular, many patients find that a stubborn problem area that is difficult to treat is just beneath the abs and above the pubic area.
For many patients, the appearance of a “pouch” or “gut” can be uncomfortable, and make it difficult to find clothes that look flattering or fit comfortably. Unfortunately, this spot, like many others on the body, can be difficult to tone or reduce through diet or exercise alone. When fat cells accumulate in this area, eliminating them can require some assistance.
You may be familiar with the tummy tuck procedure, which is very popular among women, especially those who have experienced pregnancy, childbirth, or significant weight changes.
The tummy tuck procedure aims to help address loose skin, muscles, and excess fat and tissue in the stomach, flanks, and midsection. It is a comprehensive and in-depth procedure that helps to slim down your overall body contour and tighten up the area to help you look and feel more youthful.
A mini tummy tuck is the same abdominoplasty procedure, simply geared towards the lower part of your abdomen, which sits beneath the belly button and above the pubic area. Our expert plastic surgeons typically recommend this more condensed version of the treatment to patients who don’t need such an extensive correction and can benefit from a smaller procedure to achieve the desired results.
Our patients often find that the mini tummy tuck procedure delivers incredible results that help to improve the tightness of their lower abdomen and overall figure. Generally, the procedure is not recommended for patients who are looking to lose weight or significantly impact their size.
It is ideal for anyone who wants to go down a dress size or two while achieving a more youthful body that is tighter and slimmer. Many women may feel more confident when wearing tight dresses or in certain lingerie. The procedure can also help men to help deliver a more chiseled figure overall. Our masterful surgeons can help improve your body structure and customize the approach to fit you.
Ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery like a mini tummy tuck include adults who are in good general health, understand the risks, and have a realistic expectation of the final results.
A mini tummy tuck is not a weight-loss procedure, so it is not recommended for anyone trying to lose or offset a significant amount of weight. A mini-tummy tuck works best for individuals with small amounts of loose skin or extra fat in the lower abdomen region. In some cases, it might be helpful to combine liposuction or consider this procedure beforehand to help reduce extra fat in the area.
