Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) includes tightening of the skin above the pubic region and fat removal by liposuction. Ideal for patients who have moderate to severe skin redundancy, minimal to moderate abdominal fat and moderate to severe muscle looseness. The surgeon will aspirate the abdominal fat and remove any supra-pubic redundancy. In cases of muscle looseness a portion of the abdominal skin may be removed. The skin is then sutured, with the umbilicus kept intact.
Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) can take anywhere from one to three hours.
The surgeon/patient can choose to have a Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) performed under general, epidural, or local anesthesia with sedation.
Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) can be performed in a day clinic or in a hospital.
Possible side effects
A mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) may experience infection, bruising or delayed healing. After several months, the abdominal skin will feel normal again.
There are risks
The risk of developing pulmonary embolism in young healthy patients is very low with a Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck). Although it is possible, pulmonary embolisms are very rare.
Long-duration local anesthetics can be used to provide pain relief after surgery. Post-operative care should be treated with the same care as general or gynecological surgeries. It takes seven to ten working days. For four weeks, elastic compression must be used to compress the abdomen.
The results from a Mini abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) will last for many years unless the patient becomes pregnant or loses weight.
