Mini tummy tuck, as the name suggests is a less invasive version of a standard tummy tuck.
Exercise and diet play key role in maintaining great bodies and flat tummies. Often even keen gym-goers and athletes find it difficult to get rid of that excess bulge of skin and fat from their tummies. A ‘washboard tummy ‘ is still a dream to most people . Typically problem area is below the belly button with a relatively flat upper belly. They can get away with a mini tummy tuck ,rather than a formal abdominoplasty.
The major difference between a full tummy tuck as opposed to a mini tummy tuck is not just in the cost of the procedure.
Incision – The incision and the scar in the lower tummy is only a few inches as opposed to hip to hip.
Belly button – The belly button stays untouched in mini tummy tuck while its cut around and repositioned in full tummy tuck
Downtime – Patients can go home same day after a mini tummy tuck
Cost – Although applicable in a select patients, if you qualify for a mini tummy tuck, it’s a great cost saving for you.

If your answer to any of these is a ‘YES’ , its likely you need a mini tummy tuck.
Removing the excess skin apron gives you a flat tummy . However , the transition between the tummy and mons may look unsightly if the fatty mons is not addressed.
The mons is defattened with liposuction initially to get your groin folds thin. A wedge of the mons skin can then be excised to give an aesthetically pleasing outcome.
