Mini Tummy Tuck

Mini Tummy Tuck Smithtown

Many people feel self-conscious about their midsection, even with diet and exercise. The truth is that lifestyle changes may only go so far in giving you the flat tummy you desire. The good news is that you are not alone. Many women, especially after pregnancy and childbirth, face these issues and struggle with their body image. Certain factors that contribute to the appearance of your abdomen, such as poor skin quality and muscle tone, may need to be corrected with surgery. In many cases, the solution is mini tummy tuck surgery, which improves the look of the lower abdomen.

What Is Mini Tummy Tuck?

Mini tummy tuck targets the area below the navel and above the pelvis area. This procedure appeals to those that are bothered by loose skin and excess fat on their lower abdomen, often described as a “pooch.” The procedure consists of one incision made above the pubic area, through which loose muscles are tightened and excess fat is removed. Extra skin is also trimmed during the procedure. The result is a flatter, more attractive abdominal appearance.

Benefits of Mini Tummy Tuck

The purpose of a mini tummy tuck is to firm up the abdominal profile, resulting in a more attractive contour. A strong abdominal wall helps maintain proper posture and support of your core. The benefits of this procedure include:

  • Slimmed down abdominal region
  • Shorter procedure than a traditional tummy tuck
  • Faster recovery than a traditional tummy tuck
  • Scar that can be easily hidden
  • Improved appearance in a variety of clothing

Am I a Candidate for Mini Tummy Tuck?

During your consultation, Dr. Landsman will determine your candidacy for mini tummy tuck surgery. The following factors may help you figure out if a mini tummy tuck is right for you:

Diet and exercise have not improved the look of the lower abdomen: If you eat a healthy diet and engage in exercise and other positive lifestyle choices but cannot seem to get rid of the pooch, a mini tummy tuck may be right for you.

Appearance changed after pregnancy: The skin and muscles on the abdomen can stretch and droop following pregnancy.

Loose skin after weight loss: Weight loss can be a big achievement, but the remaining loose skin and tissue on the lower abdomen can dampen your feelings about your new appearance. In certain cases, a mini tummy tuck may be the solution.

Overall health: Good overall health is important in determining your candidacy for mini tummy tuck surgery.
