What Is A Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is just like a full tummy tuck, only smaller. Last year, the American Society of Plastic Surgery reported 130K tummy tucks in the Unites States. As the popularity of tummy tucks grows, so too does the mini tummy tuck. A mini tummy entails a smaller incision in the lower abdomen area. As such, less skin is excised or removed from the area. This is for patients who have some loose lax hanging skin in the abdomen area, usually due to pregnancy or weight loss. A mini tummy tuck will give your abdomen a flatter, firmer, more youthful appearance.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Mini Tummy Tuck?

A good candidate is someone who has loose, lax hanging skin in the lower abdomen, usually due to pregnancy or dramatic weight loss. However, different from a full tummy tuck, this is for an individual who has a small amount of loose lax hanging skin.

How Does The Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure Work?

The Mini Tummy Tuck procedure is the same as a Full Tummy Tuck, only less. A smaller incision is made along the lower abdomen above the pubic area. The skin is then pulled down; it is then excised and removed, the upper fold is then pulled down, and sutured.

Mini Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction

Patients often ask if they are good liposuction candidates or tummy tuck candidates. Liposuction is a procedure to remove fat. During a mini abdominoplasty, fat can be removed, but the primary purpose is to remove excess sagging skin in the lower abdomen area.

What is the Cost?

A mini tummy tuck typically cost less than a full tummy tuck. The reasons are manifold. Less of the surgeons time is required to perform the procedure, and this translates into less operating room time, and less anesthesia. Therefore, a mini abdomenoplasty can be thousands of dollars less than a full tummy tuck. The average surgeons fee for a mini tummy tuck is $4000 to $6000 dollars.
