What is a mini tummy tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is different from a full tummy tuck in three typical ways. First, only the lower abdomen skin and fat are addressed. The upper abdomen skin is not removed. Second, the bellybutton is NOT repositioned. Third, the muscles are not tightened during a mini tummy tuck. The best candidate for this procedure is the person who ONLY has some loose skin and fat in the lower abdomen but not the upper abdomen. Plastic surgeon Dr. Yang can help determine whether this procedure may be right for you.

How is the mini tummy tuck surgery performed? What are the risks?

The mini tummy tuck procedure is performed at a fully licensed and accredited out patient surgery center. The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours to perform. A typical mini abdominoplasty includes removal of excess abdomen skin and fat from the lower abdomen for a flatter tummy. Most patients take one week off of work to recover. Longer if the work requirements are strenuous. A consultation with Dr. Yang at our Maryland or Virginia locations will help answer any questions you may have. The most common technique is demonstrated in the images here. Scars will be along the lower bikini area across the lower abdomen.
