Are you searching for a solution for the unsightly bulge beneath your belly button? The one that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise? If this sounds like you, then you’re looking for a mini tummy tuck.
A mini tummy tuck is a modified tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty). It uses a shorter incision below the belly button and only tightens the lower stomach area. Mini tummy tucks are recommended for patients who have plateaued in their diet and exercise regimen and can’t seem to shake that little bulge.

In most cases, a mini tummy tuck is only performed on the section of the abdomen below the belly button. It tightens the muscles and removes the fat that has built up in this area. The goal of a mini tummy tuck is to achieve a flatter, tighter midsection.
During a mini tummy tuck, Dr. Rosenberg will make a short incision above the pubic area, and use this as the entry point. He will then remove excess skin, tighten the abdomen muscles, and use liposuction to further contour and flatten the area.;
Tummy tucks are often combined with liposuction or lower body lifts to achieve your desired results. Because each person’s anatomy and goals are different, meeting with Dr. Rosenberg for a tummy tuck consultation is always recommended.
A mini tummy tuck is best suited for patients who have tried to rid themselves of stomach fat through diet and exercise, but have plateaued or have a problem area. Good candidates have a small, concentrated area they want flattened and contoured.
Patients who have recently undergone significant weight loss and want to rid themselves of the slack, loose “leftovers” that tend to stick around in the lower abdomen are also ideal candidates for mini tummy tucks.
If you are in good health and are looking to minimize a small area below your belly button, then a mini tummy tuck might be a good option for you. Dr. Rosenberg will be better able to tell you the procedure that is best during your initial complimentary consultation.
