Candidates for Minit Tummy Tuck

This type of tummy tuck procedure is perfect for men and women who have lesser volume of abdominal skin with less protruding stomach. Also, people who wanted to eliminate a slightly sagging skin due to aging may avail mini tummy tuck operation. Those who have slender stomach but still long to have it shaped in a more enhanced form will find this method a very convenient and effective way to enhance their slightly unappealing tummy.

Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure

Mini tummy tuck operation is often executed using generalized anesthesia. The surgeon will have to identify first the volume of skin that needs to be excised. The extent of the incision depends on the latter action. But in most cases, the cuts associated with mini tummy tuck are far smaller compared to the slits needed for conventional tummy tuck. This is the reason why it is also referred as scarless tummy tuck.

In a conventional way of executing tummy tuck, the doctor needs to move the patient’s navel. Mini tummy tuck is different because the surgeon is not anymore compelled to perform this action. On the other hand, there might be a need to combine liposuction during mini tummy tuck operation purposely to properly and beautifully shape the patient’s abdomen.

Soon after the fats that need to be removed have been excised, the surgeon’s next target is tightening the abdominal muscles. This is done by stretching the abdominal skin downward and excising the excess tissues. The remaining skin will be tacked together in place. To wrap it up, the surgeon will place a small drainage tube for proper healing of wounds.
