What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?


Schedule Consultation

by Dr. Steven Wallach

Plastic surgery procedures continue to become more customizable, allowing you and your surgeon to choose the techniques that will benefit your unique concerns. While a full tummy tuck is great for addressing full-abdominal sagging and severe excess skin, it might not be necessary in every case! With the mini tummy tuck, you can achieve the flat abdomen you want with as little invasion as possible.

What can the mini tummy tuck do?

A mini tummy tuck addresses sagging in the area above the pubic region and bellow the belly button. There are many life factors that can affect this area such as pregnancy, weight loss, or simply the aging process. If the majority of your sagging skin is in the lower abdominal, you could benefit from the mini tummy tuck with a smaller incision, less scarring, and a quicker recovery.  Just like the full tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck can remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues. Liposuction techniques can also be used to remove stubborn fat cells and optimize your results.

When should I opt for the full tummy tuck?

Excess skin and sagging aren’t always limited to the lower abdominal. Oftentimes the mid abdominal area and even the back and flanks are affected. If you experience sagging above the belly button, a full or even extended tummy tuck can give you optimal results. Although your incision will be longer, you’ll achieve a more dramatic improvement. During the full tummy tuck, your belly button can also be repositioned to complete your newly contoured abdominal.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Wallach can go over your procedure options and suggest the type of tummy tuck that is best for you. To schedule your appointment, contact our office today.

I’m so happy with the results from the Botox shots that Dr. Wallach performed on me. He spent a lot of time talking about the different fillers that would make my face look the most natural and youthful.
