Mini Tummy Tuck

When pregnancy or weight loss causes a minor amount of excess skin and fat to dominate the lower abdominal contour a mini tummy tuck may be recommended.  This procedure consists of liposuction of the abdomen, minor skin removal and lower abdominal muscle tightening. The results can be quite impressive in the appropriate individuals. It has an advantage of half the recovery time of the traditional full abdominoplasty or tummy tuck.  Patients are usually back to normal activities within one week, and full recovery is about three weeks.  However strenuous activities should be resumed slowly up until six weeks. 



The mini tummy tuck is normally performed under light IV sedation anesthesia and local anesthesia.  A compression garment must be worn for about two to three weeks.  The scar resembles a normal C-section scar.
