A mini abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) helps women from Harrisburg, Lancaster, and York, PA, improve the contour of their lower tummy area, but is less extensive than a full abdominoplasty. This procedure is designed to remove some excess skin and fat, and tighten the lower abdominal muscles.
What’s the Difference Between a Mini Tummy Tuck and a Full Tummy Tuck?
Unlike a full tummy tuck, a mini abdominoplasty addresses only the lower abdomen below the belly button, removing excess skin and repairing lower abdominal muscles.
Can a Mini Tummy Tuck Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Many women find that after pregnancy they have excess fat and drooping skin in the lower abdomen. A mini abdominoplasty is often performed as part of a Mommy Makeover, which may include other procedures such as:
If you are interested in a Mommy Makeover that includes facial plastic surgery, Dr. Stratis’s partner, Dr. Scott Gayner, is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and will perform consultations and surgery with Dr. Stratis.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From a Mini Tummy Tuck?
It will probably be about 6 weeks after surgery before you can resume strenuous activities; however, you should be able to return to work and mild activity before that time.
Mini Tummy Tuck Results
Although the results of a mini abdominoplasty are not as comprehensive as those that can be achieved through the full procedure, many patients find that it is all that they need to give them the improvements they want. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results of your mini abdominoplasty will be long lasting.
