Contouring Your Lower Abdomen

Despite being normal, dealing with a distended abdominal area can be difficult and embarrassing for some people. A mini tummy tuck is a safe and effective procedure that offers relief from the symptoms of an overstretched stomach wall by tightening the muscles in your abdomen while also reducing excess fat, targeting the area of your stomach under your belly button.

What Is A Mini Tummy Tuck?

As the name suggests, a mini tummy tuck is a less invasive surgical stomach contouring procedure used to tighten the stomach muscles and remove excess skin. It is a good option for people with mild stomach issues, such as excess skin or stretch marks. The surgery is performed using local anesthesia and takes about two hours. Patients can typically go back to work after a few days.

Surgery is performed through small incisions along the bikini area of the stomach, which help to lift and tighten loose skin. Mini tummy tucks have been named as one of the top 10 cosmetic surgery treatments, with some statistics claiming that 45% of American adults may have considered getting this procedure at some point in time.

Why Get A Mini Tummy Tuck?

Many people can wish to remove excess skin and fat in their lower abdomen. Childbirth, weight loss and genetics can cause people to have a trouble spot that they just can’t seem to get rid of no matter how hard they work out or eat right. A mini tummy tuck can correct the issue, which is why many choose to have the procedure.
