Mini Tummy Tuck
If the area of concern is small and central, a mini-abdominoplasty or mini tummy tuck is all that may be needed. This procedure is ideal for the woman who is close to her ideal body weight, who has had children and who has developed an abdominal wall laxity (stretching) due to the separation of the abdominal musculature. The abdominal wall tone and contour can be restored with plication of the stretched abdominal muscles. In many cases liposuction of the waist, ‘love handles’ region is done at the same time as the Abdominoplasty to give a better overall contour of the lower abdomen and waist region.
