Many people think cosmetic surgery is only for patients with serious issues and that all procedures are invasive and complicated. The truth is, there are several procedures that can correct minor issues and can be scaled to fit each person’s individual needs. One of the those procedures is the mini-tummy tuck.
The procedure, which is a partial abdominoplasty, is ideal for patients who want a small amount of skin to be removed or wish to correct a protruding tummy.
A mini-tummy tuck is essentially a scaled back version of the larger Tummy-Tuck and requires smaller incisions, less recovery time and less scarring. After fat has been removed, the patient’s abdominal muscles will tighten and excess skin will be stretched out over the abdomen removing unwanted fat bulging and resculpting the stomach’s appearance.
The recovery time is about the same as that for liposuction and most patients are released from care in a few hours. Most residual discomfort can be controlled with over the counter medication and it should subside a few days after surgery.
