Partial Tummy Tuck
Definition - What does Partial Tummy Tuck mean?
A partial tummy tuck, also known as a mini tummy tuck, is when surgeons remove some skin in the bottom portion of the abdomen but don't cut around the belly button or tighten the abdominal muscles. The partial tummy tuck technique is useful for patients who have skin that sags on their lower abdomen and want some tightening and toning.
These are common issues for women who have been pregnant or as a sign of aging.
TheConsultation explains Partial Tummy Tuck
Partial tummy tucks don’t remove the fat or help to tighten the underlying muscles, but they can be very helpful for individuals who have tried diet and exercise but cannot get the firm toned stomach that they want. The partial tummy tuck helps patients and offers reduced incision sites and less healing time to recover than a full tummy tuck.
The best candidates from this procedure only have loose skin underneath the belly button, and they are healthy and at a stable weight.
