What is a mini tummy tuck?
A mini tummy tuck, also known as mini abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to create a firmer and flatter abdomen. The objective of this procedure is to remove excess loose skin and tighten the abdominal region between the belly button and the pubic bone. This procedure may also remove the effects that a C-Section has on the skin.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure?
You may be a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck procedure in Montreal, if you:
- Have moderate lower abdominal skin laxity
- Have gotten a C-Section and are unhappy with the skin tethering/scar
- Do not have a protruding abdominal wall
What Does a Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure Consist of?
This procedure can be done under general or local anesthesia.
A typical mini tummy tuck procedure begins with strategically placed incisions in the pubic area and lower abdomen. This allows for the scar to be hidden in a bathing suit, or when wearing underwear. Then, the excess skin is excised and the remainder of the abdomen is tightened and redraped, resulting in a flatter and firmer lower abdomen.
