What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that tightens and sculpts the abdominal region. This can help eliminate sagging skin and stubborn areas of fat, which can be caused by pregnancy, weight loss, or just aging. This procedure can shrink the waistline and create a more toned appearance.
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
A mini tummy tuck is similar to the tummy tuck, but it only treats the area below the belly button. A mini tummy tuck can still produce remarkable contouring results, but it is best for patients who are only concerned with the area below the belly button. In general, a mini tummy tuck requires smaller incisions and less treatment time than a full tummy tuck.
What Can I Expect from a Tummy Tuck Procedure?
For a tummy tuck, a horizontal incision is made just below the swimsuit line. This is all that is required for a mini tummy tuck, but a full tummy tuck also requires an incision in the belly button. Next, the tissue and muscles are tightened, creating a firmer, toned appearance. After the incisions are closed, the procedure is complete. A full tummy tuck can take as long as four hours, and mini tummy tucks are typically performed in about two hours.
How is Recovery from a Tummy Tuck?
After your tummy tuck, you may experience some swelling and discomfort for a few days. As with all surgeries, we recommend that patients rest as much as possible following their procedure to ensure that the body recovers properly. This includes minimizing any physical activity. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities approximately three to four weeks after surgery.
