You’ve been working hard all winter and spring to get in shape for the summer. You’ve dieted and done your abdominal workout every day. But for some reason there’s that little pouch of fat and sagging skin just above the pubic area that just won’t seem to budge. This stubborn area is preventing you from showing off the results of all your hard work.
Don’t give up hope. There is a cosmetic procedure that can get rid of that seemingly immovable layer of sagging skin and fat giving you what you are looking for – a flat, firm, athletic looking abdomen. A mini-abdominoplasty or mini-tummy tuck is the answer.
Unlike a full abdominoplasty, a mini-tummy tuck is perfect for anyone who is in good health and pretty good shape. This modified tummy tuck uses a C-section like incision to tighten muscle and remove excess lower abdominal skin. If your area of concern is below the belly button you could be the ideal candidate for this procedure.
The great thing about the mini-abdominoplasty is that the navel does not have to be repositioned. By combining a mini-tummy tuck with liposuction you can achieve a beautifully sculpted abdomen. If you’ve had a baby, lost weight or are losing skin elasticity due to aging, the mini-tummy tuck could prove to be the perfect solution.
Recovery time is usually about the same as it is for liposuction. Schedule a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is practiced in performing the mini-tummy tuck. After your procedure, you should be able to return to work within a few days, and within a couple of weeks you should be able to proudly bare your sexy flat athletic abdomen.
