Why a Mini Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
We work hard through diet and exercise to achieve a flat, smooth profile in the belly area. However, sometimes our efforts don’t pay off. Even when we eat well and work out, it can be difficult to get rid of the bulge of the stomach. The mini tummy tuck area allows you to eliminate that “pooch” from the lower belly area without having to undergo a full abdominoplasty procedure.
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
The mini tummy tuck is a version of a full abdominoplasty, which requires a smaller incision and less time. While the full abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat on the entire abdominal area, the mini tummy tuck targets the area below the belly button. During the mini tummy tuck procedure, the fat is removed from the area below the navel and the excess skin is removed for a smoother, toned belly and sleek profile.
What are the Benefits of a Mini Tummy Tuck
The lower belly “pooch” is a grievance for so many. Whether excess fat and skin are the result of weight change, pregnancy, or just aging, the mini tummy tuck is an effective solution to eliminate the unwanted fat. The mini tummy tuck allows individuals to get a slimmer abdominal region, and possibly, go down a pant size or two in some cases. The results of a mini tummy tuck last for as long as you maintain your diet and exercise routine.
Who is a Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?

- You have excess skin below the belly button, above the pubic bone
- You are at a stable weight with which you are comfortable
- You have excess skin, in addition to fat, in the area as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.
