MINI TUMMY TUCK
Most women are familiar with the ‘Muffin Top’, that stubborn pouch of fatty tissue immediately below the belly button. Diet and exercise often do little to improve this unsightly area.
While clothing can help to conceal the lax tissue, pants and dresses may simply do not fit the way they used to – and forget about wearing a bikini. Fortunately, there is a surgical procedure available at Cosmetic Avenue created just for this situation: the Mini Tummy Tuck.
WHAT IS MINI TUMMY TUCK
Mini Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure, designed to tighten and flatten the lower abdomen, creating an aesthetically pleasing contour. As a modified Abdominoplasty, the Mini Tummy Tuck only addresses the stretched, lax tissue below the belly button. While the more traditional Tummy Tuck can address unwanted fat and skin all along the stomach, it utilizes a longer incision, running from hip to hip. The Mini Tummy Tuck requires only a short incision, similar to that of a C-section, placed immediately above the pubic line. The procedure can restore a contoured abdomen with only a minor scar, which is easily concealed under clothing.
BENEFITS OF A MINI TUMMY TUCK
There are many benefits that, it is much less invasive than a traditional abdominoplasty, which means a much shorter recovery period for the patient. Other benefits include:
For those patients who don’t require any additional contour sculpting above the belly button, and do not have a significantly protruding abdominal muscle wall, the mini tummy tuck is the procedure of choice.
