Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck involves removing excess fat and skin, and in most cases restoring weakened or separated muscles. By removing excess fat and skin and tightening the stomach muscles, a tummy tuck can be used to create a flatter waist line, improving appearance and increasing self-confidence.
Abdominoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Temporary side effects may include pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness. The likelihood of scarring and other risks varies from individual to individual and should be discussed with your doctor. Most patients are able to return to work and light activities in two weeks or less.
If you’re considering abdominoplasty, you might be wondering what the difference is between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck.
In most cases, a mini tummy tuck is only performed on the section of the abdomen below the belly button. In a mini tummy tuck, the goal is to tighten only the lower abdomen.
Whether or not a mini tummy tuck will help you achieve your desired results will depend upon the amount of excess skin and fat present prior to surgery. Our plastic surgeon can help you decide whether a mini tummy tuck or full tummy tuck will serve you best.
In addition to determining whether a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck is necessary, our plastic surgeon can also recommend tummy tuck procedures with liposuction or lower body lifts for maximum results. Because each person’s anatomy and goals are different, meeting with a plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck consultation is always recommended.
