What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Due to a number of factors, proper diet and exercise alone may not grant you the smooth, tight stomach you've always wanted. Fortunately, there is still a way to achieve the body of your dreams. At Platinum Plastic Surgery, we offer a procedure known as a mini tummy tuck to our patients in Las Vegas, NV. In comparison to a full tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck is much less invasive, leading to a much faster recovery and decreased pain. Dr. Chris Costa is highly experienced in performing this procedure designed to effectively eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and excess skin from the lower section of the abdomen. If this sounds appealing to you, consider scheduling a consultation at our office today.

Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

Men and women experiencing loose skin and/or excess fat in the lower abdomen area may be ideal candidates for a mini tummy tuck. It is important to note, however, that this procedure is not a weight loss solution. All patients should be at a healthy weight prior to undergoing the surgery. Those who would like fat removed from their abdomen but are happy with the tightness of their skin may be better candidates for liposuction. Additionally, we recommend our female patients be finished completing their family before considering the procedure, as the results can be adversely affected during the pregnancy process.

How are Mini Tummy Tucks Performed?

A mini tummy tuck is very similar to a full tummy tuck, though much less invasive. The primary difference is the smaller incision site and faster recovery associated with a mini tummy tuck. This also means that the belly button will be completely unaffected by the surgery. In most cases, this procedure is combined with liposuction in order to remove any undesirable pockets of fat. At this point, the excess skin will be excised and the remaining tissue will be pulled tight and stitched together.  The procedure is much less invasive than a full abdominoplasty and therefore the recovery is much faster.  Patients do not require drains after this procedure.  As always, the incisions will be placed in areas that are easy to hide when wearing undergarments and bathing suits.

What Results Can I Expect from Mini Tummy Tucks?

This procedure is typically performed in an office setting under local anesthesia. Generally, it takes around 1 – 2 hours to complete, at which point patients will be monitored and then released from the facility. For most patients, the recovery process will last around 4 – 6 weeks before they are given clearance to return to strenuous activities, such as exercise. While results are considered to be permanent, they can be compromised by pregnancy or excessive weight gain. For this reason, we always recommend for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure and to be sure that their family planning has come to an end before undergoing the surgery.
