Mini Tummy Tuck: The Right Procedure for You?
A mini tummy tuck, also known as mini abdominoplasty, is a viable option for men and women who don't need a procedure as drastic as a full abdominoplasty. The best candidates for mini tummy tucks are those who have done as much as they can through diet and exercise, but still have some excess loose skin over the lower abdomen. This can be an ideal procedure for women who wish to tighten up the skin and muscle after pregnancy.
In most cases of mini abdominoplasty, the offending fat deposits are located below the navel. The surgeon will generally make an incision just above the pubic region, similar to a C-section cut, and thus should not have to reposition the belly button.
Is Pregnancy a Concern After a Mini Tummy Tuck?
Women considering an abdominoplasty procedure may want to wait until after they are done having children, as pregnancy can cause the surgically tightened muscles to separate.
