The mini tummy tuck is a relatively simple procedure that removes excess fat and tightens the skin on the lower abdomen. For people who are looking for a less-invasive procedure than the full tummy tuck, the mini is a great alternative.
Lavida Cosmetic Medicine offers this procedure at our conveniently-located Caringbah and Bankstown locations, which offer cutting-edge equipment and private facilities, and are staffed by highly trained and experienced professionals.
What is the Procedure Like?
The mini tummy tuck is a procedure suitable for both men and women that reduces the recovery time and scarring that can occur with a full tummy tuck. The mini tummy tuck involves making an incision along the lower abdomen, below the belly button, then tightening the skin in this area. It can also involve removing excess fat via tumescent liposuction.
A mini tummy tuck procedure only takes a few hours to complete, and requires only a one-night stay at our facilities. Recovery normally takes only a few weeks, with full recovery to normal activities after about six weeks. You should be able to return to work in less than two weeks.
