Mini Tummy Tuck

Main picture for Mini Tummy Tuck – Abdominal Contouring

A mini-tummy tuck, or mini-abdominoplasty, involves a smaller incision, shorter scar (only slightly longer then C-section scar), faster recovery without need for any drains, and more natural results than the traditional procedure. Most mini abdominoplasty patients are back to normal daily activities within 2-3 days after surgery, and back to work in less than a week.

PROCEDURE:

Lose the excess skin of the lower abdominal area and get back to your normal routine in no time. A mini-tummy tuck is designed to remove excess loose/sagging skin of the lower abdomen with a shorter scar than a full abdominoplasty procedure. Mini tummy tucks are commonly performed for men and women.

ABOUT PROCEDURE
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck, or mini abdominoplasty, is the perfect quick-recovery way to achieve a flatter, tighter, and more youthful stomach with precise finishing touches. You can get the same slimming results as a Full Tummy Tack (Abdominoplasty) with half the downtime, half the scar, and half the price.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE

The beauty of this procedure is that you can get many of the same great benefits of a full tummy tuck in a less invasive way. During your mini tummy tuck, Dr. Danovich will use only local anesthesia to numb your abdomen and make a much shorter incision (close to a C-section scar) than is needed for full abdominoplasty. She will remove excess skin and fat (liposuction may be needed) from your stomach area, and will leave your navel (clinically known as the umbilicus, commonly known as the belly button, or tummy button) intact for the most natural results possible.

RECOVERY
How long is the recovery after a Mini Tummy Tuck?
  • Immediately after surgery, you’ll feel mildly tired and sore, but incomparably less then after a full abdominoplasty procedure.
  • By the third day, you’ll start to get your energy back to dive into your daily activity.
  • Nearly all of your soreness will be gone in a week after surgery, and you’ll probably be off pain pills altogether. You will be ready to go back to work at this stage.
  • At the 2-week mark, you’ll be able to get back into regular activities without any restrictions.

WHAT OTHER PROCEDURES CAN HELP SLIM MY ABDOMEN?

Dr. Svetlana M. Danovich – Cosmetic Surgical Artist – will determine whether you’re better suited for a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck based on the degree of your abdominal muscles separation as well as the amount and quality of the skin to be removed. The Liposuction or Lunchtime Liposuction may be combined with your mini tummy tuck for better body contouring in order to achieve perfect proportions.

Q&A / QUESTIONS AND SD ANSWERS

Q: What is the difference between Mini Tummy Tuck Scar and Full Tummy Tuck Scar?
A: The fundamental difference between mini vs full tummy tuck is the belly button. In a full tummy tuck the belly button is cored out and re-inset through a new area in the abdominal skin. A mini tummy tuck leaves the belly button attached to the surrounding skin and spears you from having a scar around the belly button.The scar in a mini tummy tuck is usually shorter than one for a full tummy tuck. Both are placed pretty low ,so patients are able to wear a bikini afterwards and still hide the scar. Thus, both scars have similar visibility.
