Mini Tummy Tuck Before and After Photos
Typically, patients who are good candidates for mini tummy tuck have had moderate weight loss with overhanging tummy skin, those women who have had pregnancies with or without a C-Section whose skin overhangs a bit, and those whose stomach muscles simply won’t tighten enough despite exercise. Mini tummy tuck involves two steps that are performed during the same operation. These steps include removal of lower abdominal skin and liposuction of unwanted fat.
A mini tummy tuck is ideally suited for those whose waistline concern is from below the belly button only. If there is extra abdominal skin and weakness of the abdomen above the bellybutton, then a full abdominoplasty is needed.
