- Advantages of Mini Tummy tuck
Even slim women can struggle with loose tummy skin or prominent tummy. A common reason is pregnancy or several pregnancies or men or women who were once obese, managed to reduce their weight and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around their belly.
Mini or Partial abdominoplasty is the right solution when the major amount of the loose skin or fat is located under the belly button.
However, the word Mini or Partial can make us think it is a little procedure, please consider it as a procedure which is relatively extensive and takes about an hour or two to perform.
So what is the difference between Mini / Partial and Complete Abdominoplasty? Well, A Mini Tummy Tuck mainly involves the region of the lower abdomen, under the belly. Excessive skin and fatty tissues are removed only from this area. This procedure may well include muscle tightening as well but not in higher areas of abdomen over the belly button.
If muscle tightening of higher abdomen is necessary, then a Complete Tummy Tuck is performed.

The main advantage if mini tummy tuck is that the incision is positioned under the belly button, usually in the lower abdomen where it is hidden from sights when wearing underwear or swimsuit.
Another beneficial aspect is lower risk level, less negative side effects and shorter recovery phase with shorter incision wound. Of course, bruins and swelling are of smaller scope too. Overall post-operation complication level is generally lower.
These are the main reasons for having Mini Tummy Tuck done instead of Complete one. However, every client is individual and his or her indications must be examined in detail by surgeon who can recommend the best solution and procedure for each one so that the best result will be achieved.
