Mini Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty helps gets rid of loose or wrinkled skin and is the most effective way tummy tuck or abdominoplasty helps gets rid of loose or wrinkled skinto tighten your stomach area. Stretch marks between the belly button and pubic hair are eliminated along with any fat tissue in the lower abdomen. The abdominal wall muscles are tightened so that even when sitting down or bending over the abdomen doesn't stick out.

Abdominal wall deformities can be classified into three:

  • Loose or wrinkly skin, stretch marks due to ageing, pregnancy or excess weight loss
  • Fat tissue in the lower abdomen
  • Muscle separation, which can occur by itself or as a result of pregnancy

Though Liposuction takes care of excess fat tissue, loose skin and stretch marks need to be addressed by dermatolipectomy, mini-tummy tuck or full tummy tuck. The tummy tuck addresses the three components of your abdomen: the skin, fat and muscle. Most notable is the fact that work is done to tighten the muscles, which will benefit women who want as flat a stomach as possible . Results, especially when combined with liposuction of the flanks are dramatic. A mini tummy tuck is best suited for women who don't have stretch marks or saggy skin but have a pouch below the belly button. It can be done through an incision in the belly button, or through a C section scar if excess skin need to be taken off.


The procedure is not a good skin tightening procedure.

It can only tighten a limited area directly above the pubic mound. If you try to tighten more, you end up extending the scar sideways and you get a longer scar that is no longer well hidden and still not the amount of tightening that will make you happy.

  • It really doesn’t take care of stretch marks
  • It does not take care of any muscle wall separation above the belly button

Tummy Tuck

The Tummy Tuck treats two conditions: a muscle separation above and below the belly button and excessive or loose skin in the belly. It is really two operations, a muscle repair and a skin excision. The skin excision part is called a Dermatolipectomy. All the skin between the belly button and pubic mound is taken out. Thus it can take care of all the stretch marks below the belly button. The skin above the belly button is stretched to reach the top of the pubic mound. Any stretch marks above the belly button will come to lie just above the pubic mound.

The scar from a Tummy Tuck usually goes from hip bone to hip bone, but this is not an absolute. If there is a lot of loose skin or a fold of abdominal skin, the scar may extend beyond the hipbones. The incision is done in such a way that the scar comes below the panty line.
