Mini Tummy Tuck

Definition - What does Mini Tummy Tuck mean?

A mini tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the stomach. it is similar to a regular tummy tuck, but rather than focusing on the entire stomach, it only removes skin and fat from below the belly button. This procedure is considered less extensive than a regular tummy tuck, but produces similar results. Unlike the tummy tuck, a mini tummy tuck requires a small incision in the lower abdomen without altering the belly button. There is a small scar left from the procedure that is usually about half the distance from hip to hip.

TheConsultation explains Mini Tummy Tuck

The mini tummy tuck is a common procedure for women after pregnancy or following a C-section. However, individuals who have weight fluctuations may also be prime candidates for the procedure if their stomach has loose sagging skin that can't be remedied with healthy diet and exercise. Surgeons indicate that the results of a mini tummy tuck are less obvious than a full tummy tuck. Patients who undergo this procedure should only do so if they require limited results.
