Mini Tummy Tuck:Procedure and Recovery

A partial (or mini) abdominoplasty proceeds as follows:

  1. A smaller opening is made.
  2. The skin and fat of the lower tummyisisolated in a more limited fashion from the muscle frontage. The skin is stretched down and extra skin removed.
  3. Sometimes the belly button stalk is divided from the muscle below and the belly button slid down lower on the abdominal wall.
  4. Sometimes a portion of the stomach muscle front wall is tightened.
  5. Liposuction is often used to contour.
  6. The flap is sewed back into place.

Recovery

  1. Depends on the problem to be treated, surgical technique(s), and other factors. Can take up to four weeks, during which patients are advised torest.
  2. Lifting heavy weight is best avoided during this time.
  3. Initial discomfort is observed.
  4. A supportive abdominal binder or compression garment can minimize swelling/bruising and support the repaired tissues.
  5. This compression garment is also instrumental in helping the skin in the treated area conform to its new shape.
  6. Patients are advised against the consumption of any form of nicotine for a month or longer.
