What to expect
Your mini tummy tuck will be performed under general anesthesia and will take between two and three hours to complete. To begin, we will make an incision that is several inches long in your lower abdomen, just above your pubic hairline. For women who have had a C-section, we can re-open the same incision for your mini tummy tuck.
Once the incision is made, your surgeon will suture loose, lower abdominal muscles together and remove excess skin. Throughout this process, stretch marks are often improved as well. In many cases, we may also perform liposuction to remove excess fat. Once your lower abdomen has been smoothed and reshaped, we will redrape your skin and close the incisions with care to minimize any scarring.
