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.
