What is the difference between a tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck? A tummy tuck involves removing excess fat and skin to create a flatter and toned waist line. This removal of fat and skin helps tighten the stomach muscles and improve the appearance of your abdomen. This procedure is helpful for those who have excess skin from pregnancy or weight loss. With a mini tummy tuck the goal is only to tighten the area below the belly button. To learn more about a tummy tuck please contact Dr. Rosenberg to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
