Mini Abdominoplasty (Mini Tummy Tuck)

Mini abdominoplasty, also known as mini tummy tuck is a procedure designed to help improve the appearance of the abdomen.  During a mini tummy tuck the excess fat and skin is removed from the lower abdomen.  In addition to removing excess skin Dr. Zambrano will do liposuction of the abdomen and waist to give you a better abdomen appearance. 

 

Candidate

A mini tummy tuck is appropriate for men and women who have excess skin and fat on their lower abdomen.  Mini tummy tuck is appropriate for those who do not have significant protruding abdominal muscle wall.  

 

Procedure

The mini tummy tuck is performed as an outpatient surgery.  The procedure can be done with local anesthesia or under general anesthesia. Liposuction of the abdomen is done along with mini tummy tuck for better results.  Dr. Zambrano will make an incision above the pubic region.  The excess skin is then removed and the incision is reapproximated in several layers. 

 

Risk & Complications

Complications associated with mini tummy tuck include;

  • Initial obscurity
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Hematoma
  • Infection
  • Skin discoloration
  • Separation of wound

We ask our patients to stop smoking four-to-six weeks before and after surgery to minimize wound complications.
