What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck, also known as partial abdominiplasty, was developed by plastic surgeons to help people with lesser fat and loose skin compared to people who require a standard tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck addresses the problem caused by loosening up of lower abdominal wall. This obviously need not require a standard tummy tuck or abdominiplasty but it sure needs more than liposuction. The mini tummy tuck is ideal for you if you have a bulging abdomen, excess fat or sagging skin, it is also used to correct muscle weakness.

The mini tummy tuck only involves removing additional fat and skin, while a standard one involves removal of fat, skin as well as tightening of muscles. Which means, if you get a mini tummy tuck done, you recover faster and undergo a less complicated operation compared to a standard tummy tuck.

The mini tummy tuck is also known to addresses the problem which mostly pregnant women face after the delivery. During pregnancy a pregnant women’s body automatically adjusts itself by redistributing fat, then involution as well as lactating breasts, these changes, after the delivery lead to unexpected fat deposits in the most unwanted places along with disfigured breasts. A conscious woman will do whatever exercise it takes to wear the fat off but the genetically deposited fat is not that easy to get rid off, that’s where mini tummy tuck comes in. However, men can also benefit from the mini tummy tuck procedure. Men can address problems such as, loose skin around the lower abs, which mostly happens after a gastric bypass surgery or after they loose a lot of weight, by a simple operation.

Pregnancy is worth anything in the world, but the loose roll of skin and fat left after pregnancy can be demoralizing for many, a mini tummy tuck can help you win it all back safely, you’ll be your usual self in a matter of days. A mini tummy tuck will cost lesser than a standard tummy tuck you might need after some more time and it leaves only a small scar atop the pubis. However, like any other surgical procedure mini tummy tuck also involves inherent risks, only your surgeons can tell if a mini tummy tuck procedure is safe for you.
