When is a Mini-Tummy Tuck Appropriate?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


At Grossman Plastic Surgery, our Denver plastic surgeons want to ensure that every procedure you undergo is appropriate for your specific needs. This means not performing more surgery than you require. One of the best examples of this dynamic is the mini-tummy tuck.

A mini-tummy tuck is designed to tighten loose abdominal muscles and remove excess skin below the belly button. As such, it’s appropriate if you don’t have any cosmetic issues above your belly button that you wish to address.

A full tummy tuck, by contrast, is a much more intensive procedure. It will require more recovery time and is best for patients who have significant abdominal concerns they wish to remove.

The tummy tuck is popular because it is an exceptionally effective procedure, and our Denver plastic surgeons have used it to great effect on many occasions. However, a tummy tuck is equally effective at solving the specific problems it is designed to address.

Our Denver plastic surgeons will help you decide if a mini-tummy tuck is the right option for you.
