What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
Not every woman who has excess skin on her belly may need a full tummy tuck procedure. A mini tummy tuck uses a shorter scar and will address excess skin and abdominal wall laxity limited to the area below the belly button. Your plastic surgeon will weigh these two options with you carefully to determine if a full or mini tummy tuck is best for you.

How is a Mini Tummy Tuck Performed?
Your mini tummy tuck procedure will be very similar to a normal tummy tuck procedure in that there will be an incision in your abdomen, whereupon underlying muscles will be tightened, excess skin trimmed and the remaining skin draped to make a tighter, sexier contour. However, in this case, the treatment area is solely focused on the area below your belly button.
How Do I Know if a Mini Tummy Tuck is Right for Me?
Proper patient selection is very important in predicting a good outcome with a mini tummy tuck. If you have concern about excess skin above the belly button, or abdominal wall laxity above the belly button, a mini tummy tuck will most likely not improve these areas. To see the difference in both procedures, take a look at both full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck before and after pictures.
