Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini tummy tuck eliminates the excess skin and fat from the abdomen, as long as it is limited to the area below the navel. If your problem is that annoying roll of fat showing above your bikini, this is the right procedure for you. Unlike traditional tummy tuck surgery, which is a much more complicated procedure, it does not eliminate flaccidity or fat in the area above the navel, nor does it allow tightening of the abdominal muscles to narrow the waist. When the skin has good elasticity and the fat deposits are small, liposuction is a more adequate treatment.
The surgeon makes a horizontal or slightly curved incision of about 15 cm just above the pubic hair. He trims the excess skin and closes the incision with stitches. Since this area is not exposed to tension, the wound tends to heal very well. The resulting scar will be of about 15 cm, just above the pubic hair. It will always be concealed by your underwear or bathing suit. In due time, it will turn to a pale pink and will become less and less visible. You will be able to show up in public wearing a bathing suit after about a month. Your abdomen will be flatter and firmer for a long time. The results of a mini tummy tuck surgery are permanent and most of the patients are satisfied with the benefits obtained. All in all, they consider that their bodies look much better after the surgery, in spite of the scar.
