Mini Tummy Tuck in Minneapolis-St. Paul

What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is a variation of a traditional tummy tuck, and is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen. Weak or protruding abdominal muscles can also be corrected. This procedure can help to create a smoother abdominal profile without the extensiveness of a traditional tummy tuck procedure.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Patients who are dealing with sagging skin and excess fat below the belly button often benefit from a mini tummy tuck. Patients with excess fat and skin above the belly button or around their sides can find greater benefit from a full tummy tuck. Mini tummy tuck candidates should have less excess fat and skin than those of traditional tummy tuck candidates.

The Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure

A mini tummy tuck procedure can last between two and five hours. This procedure uses a shorter incision just above the pubic hairline, similar to a C-section incision. Lower abdominal muscles are tightened, and excess abdominal skin and fat is removed. Also, unlike a traditional tummy tuck, an incision is not made around the belly button. Liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat deposits.

Mini Tummy Tuck Recovery

Recovery from a mini tummy tuck is shorter than that of a full tummy tuck. Patients should expect to take seven to 10 days for recovery time. Most patients can return to work and strenuous activities in three to four weeks.
