Tummy Tuck

After losing weight or following pregnancy, many people are left with folds of skin around their abdomen. A saggy tummy may simply be a result of the ageing process or it could be an area that diet and exercise has just not been able to help. Regardless of the reason, an Tummy Tuck could give you a slimmer, more shapely figure.

It is important to understand that an abdominoplasty should not be considered as a way to lose weight. A person having a tummy tuck should already have achieved their target weight.

What is a mini tummy tuck?

One variation of an abdominoplasty is the mini-tummy tuck. This involves using a short incision an inch or two below the naval, similar to an incision used for a caesarean section. A mini tummy tuck is used to tighten muscle and remove excess skin around the lower abdominal region.

Is a mini tummy tuck right for me?

If most of your excess skin and abdominal issues are below the belly button then a mini tummy tuck could be perfect for you. It is usually recommended for patients who have always been in pretty good shape or have already lost excess weight and have a health body fat percentage.
