Mini Tummy Tuck (Mini Abdominoplasty)

Mini-Tummy-TuckMini abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck, is a quicker and less invasive procedure than the full tummy tuck. Patients who have just a small amount of excess abdominal skin and those who are experiencing minor skin sagging due to aging are often good candidates for this procedure. Contact Dr. Talbott today to schedule a consultation and how a mini tummy tuck can help you. [READ: Tummy Tucks and Liposuction: How They Measure Up]

Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure

A mini tummy tuck requires a short incision that is made across the lower abdomen; the navel does not need to be separated from the skin. After the incision is made, underlying abdominal muscles are tightened and excess fat is removed. The skin is then pulled tight around the midsection and trimmed to create a fit, toned appearance. A mini tummy tuck in Reno, Nevada can be performed on an outpatient basis, typically taking about two to three hours to complete. Patients generally experience some discomfort and swelling for a few days after the procedure; however, any residual pain can be controlled with medication.

Mini Tummy Tuck Recovery

Scarring from a mini tummy tuck is minimal, and Dr. Talbott will make every effort to make the incision as discreet as possible. Strenuous activities should be avoided for about six weeks after the procedure. Patients are usually able to resume normal daily activities within a few days after a mini tummy tuck.
