By tightening the stubborn problem area below your navel, a mini tummy tuck can help you get rid of your lower tummy “pooch,” enhance the look and fit of your wardrobe—and increase your overall confidence about your appearance.
A mini tummy tuck (partial abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and tissue and pulls the skin taut in the troublesome area between the navel and pubic bone.
This area can become bulging and saggy due to pregnancy, weight loss, and/or aging. A mini tummy tuck may be ideal for you if you have excess fatty deposits or loose, stretchy skin below the navel that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.
If you feel that a larger area of the abdominal region is the problem, a full abdominoplasty/tummy tuck may be a better solution for you.
What to Expect
During a mini tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon makes a small incision in the lower abdomen and then pulls the skin tight, removes any excess fat or tissue, and sutures the incision back together.
Unlike a full tummy tuck, your navel isn’t affected during a mini tummy tuck.
Generally performed under local anesthesia with sedation, the mini tummy tuck is an outpatient procedure, and most patients return home the same day.
Follow-up techniques depend on individual needs, but may include support garments, resting, and avoiding strenuous activity. Most patients return to work after a few days.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Flatter, tighter lower stomach region
- Beautiful lower abdominal skin that’s free of stretch marks
- Improved body proportions
- Better-fitting clothes and/or the need for smaller sizes
- Enhanced body confidence
