Mini Tummy Tuck

Aug 17, 2007
Some people are in a stage in which they have excess fat but not that much which is required for tummy tuck the solution is to do mini tummy tuck rather than opting for standard tummy tuck. It was especially developed by plastic surgeons for this type of patients.

A mini tummy tuck addresses the problem caused by loosening up of lower abdominal wall. This obviously need not require a standard tummy tuck or abdominiplasty but it sure needs more than liposuction. The mini tummy tuck is ideal for you if you have a bulging abdomen, excess fat or sagging skin, it is also used to correct muscle weakness.

The mini tummy tuck is used only for removing additional fat and skin, while a standard one involves removal of fat, skin as well as tightening of muscles. Thus if you get a mini tummy tuck done you recover faster and also undergo a less complicated operation compared to a standard tummy tuck.

The mini tummy tuck is also known to addresses the problem which mostly pregnant women face after the delivery. A conscious woman will do whatever exercise it takes to wear the fat off but the genetically deposited fat is not that easy to get rid off, that's where mini tummy tuck comes in. However, men can also benefit from the mini tummy tuck procedure. Men can address problems such as, loose skin around the lower abs, which mostly happens after a gastric bypass surgery or after they loose a lot of weight, by a simple operation.

Pregnancy is worth anything in the world, but the loose roll of skin and fat left after pregnancy can be demoralizing for many, a mini tummy tuck can help you win it all back safely, you'll be your usual self in a matter of days. A mini tummy tuck will cost lesser than a standard tummy tuck you might need after some more time and it leaves only a small scar atop the pubis. However, like any other surgical procedure mini tummy tuck also involves inherent risks, only your surgeons can tell if a mini tummy tuck procedure is safe for you.

All operations have some risk. The risks of surgery are divided into two groups. First those that are seen in all operations and second those that are unique or special for this operation. In the first group, the main risks are swelling, bruising, bleeding, infection, a scar and numbness or change in feeling. The main problems which are special for this operation are the scar of the lower abdomen and irregularity from the liposuction.

Postoperative care: The recovery takes one to two weeks. Most people are back to work within a week or two.
