Mini Tummy Tuck TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Mini Tummy Tuck surgery, also known as a partial abdominoplasty or skin-only abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that targets the lower abdomen. It is designed to remove excess loose skin and fatty tissue from the area between the navel (belly button) and the pubic area. This surgery is an ideal option for individuals with mild loose skin, and it is known for its quicker recovery compared to a full tummy tuck. The goal of a mini tummy tuck is to achieve a smoother, firmer lower abdomen, resulting in improved body contour. It is a popular choice for those looking to address specific concerns in the lower abdominal area.

Mini Tummy Tuck surgery and full tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty)differ primarily in terms of the extent of the procedure and the area of focus. 

In a mini tummy tuck, a smaller incision is used, usually above the pubic area. It targets excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen, offering a faster recovery, typically lasting 2-6 weeks, and is best suited for those with mild to moderate lower abdominal concerns. Conversely, a full tummy tuck requires a longer incision, spanning from hip to hip, and includes more extensive muscle repair to address abdominal muscle separation. It focuses on the entire abdominal area and entails a longer recovery period, usually around 6-8 weeks or more. It is recommended for individuals with more substantial excess skin, fat, and muscle separation.

The choice between a Mini Tummy Tuck and a full Tummy Tuck depends on the patient's specific needs, the extent of correction required, and the surgeon's recommendations. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial to determine the most suitable procedure for an individual's goals and anatomy.

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers free consultations with expert and accredited plastic surgeons to discuss whether a Tummy Tuck is right for you. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and whether a Tummy Tuck is the right procedure to help you achieve the appearance you desire.

They also offer innovative new techniques like Vaser Liposculpture, Renuvion skin tightening, and BodyTite treatments that can provide smaller scars, quicker recovery, and a better cosmetic result.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered a further appointment with your consultant before progressing to surgery to discuss the Tummy Tuck procedure in more detail, as well as details of preparation and recovery.

STEP 3. PREPARATION FOR TUMMY TUCK SURGERY

The staff at Bella Vou will advise you on any pre-operative preparations to reduce your risk of infection and help your recovery.

You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication, which can increase the risk of bleeding. It’s important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes, which can impede the healing process.

You should continue to shower daily, as usual. 

You will be advised about the time to start fasting in preparation for your general anaesthetic.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be welcomed to Bella Vou and checked into one of our beautifully appointed recovery suites before being escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre.

STEP 4. WHAT HAPPENS DURING TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?

Tummy Tuck surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. The surgeon cleans the skin and then a small incision is made just above the pubic area, allowing the surgeon to access the lower abdomen.

Excess skin and fatty tissue are removed, and the underlying muscles may be tightened if necessary. Unlike a full Tummy Tuck, the belly button isn't affected during this procedure, which means it remains in its natural position and there is no scar around the naval; the only visible scar is hidden below the knicker line. This procedure is less extensive than a full tummy tuck, so it typically takes less time and involves a quicker recovery. Since it focuses on the lower abdomen, it is an ideal option for individuals with mild loose skin in that area.

The incision is strategically placed to minimise visible scarring. After the surgery, patients wear compression garments to support the healing process and achieve a smoother, firmer lower abdomen.

STEP 5. RECOVERY FROM A MINI TUMMY TUCK

Recovery from a Mini Tummy Tuck is relatively quicker and less extensive compared to a full tummy tuck. The typical recovery period for a Mini Tummy Tuck is approximately six weeks. However, some individuals might experience a quicker return to normal activities, sometimes as early as two weeks. It's important to note that the pace of recovery can vary among patients.

In the initial days post-surgery, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated area, managed with prescribed pain medication. Compression garments support healing and reduce swelling. Light activity is encouraged, while strenuous exercise is gradually reintroduced as advised by the surgeon.
