As the name would suggest, a mini-tummy tuck is a slightly more conservative approach to the same methodology behind the full tummy tuck. In a mini-tummy tuck, the lower abdomen is contoured, removing the excess fat and raising loose skin located below the belly button. This procedure can be especially helpful for women post pregnancy, or for individuals coming off a considerable drop in weight, since both instances can leave an excess of loose skin. Stomach muscles can also be tightened with a mini-tummy tuck, though this is accomplished more effectively with a full tummy tuck.
To find out if a mini-tummy tuck is the right body contouring procedure for you, consulting with a top plastic surgeon is highly recommended. Not only can they properly assess which procedure will work best with your specific body conditions, they can work with you to ensure your procedure yields exactly the results you want!

Performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon, a mini-tummy tuck is intended to contour or shape the patient's lower abdomen. The skin is repositioned and tightened during surgery, but among the types of tummy tuck, the mini leaves the smallest scar.
The time need for a mini-tuck surgery can vary wildly, anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of the work.
Side Effects / Risks:
Like most surgical procedures, patients will have some temporary swelling, pain, and numbness. There is also the risk of infection, scarring, and reaction to anesthesia.
Duration of Results:
Results of the mini-tummy tuck are generally permanent, unless affected in the future by major weight changes or pregnancy. See what real patients thought of their mini-tummy tuck results, at the mini-tummy tuck reviews and ratings section.
Patients are asked to wear a compression garment for 2-3 weeks following a mini-tummy tuck. Strenuous activity should also be avoided for a full month after surgery.
