Mini Abdominoplasty Surgery

The abdominal area of the body is among the most common concerns for many men and women. In most cases, individuals exercise and eat properly but still fail to achieve a sculpted, flat tummy. A mini tummy tuck can help restore a firmer, flatter-looking midsection without the recovery time associated with traditional abdominoplasty surgery. Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team can determine if you are a candidate for mini tummy tuck surgery to restore natural-looking contours.

What Is A Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is appropriate for men and women who need cosmetic body sculpting improvement to only the lower abdomen area that is just below the belly button. A mini tummy tuck surgery can remove excess skin and fat but does not tighten the underlying muscles like a traditional tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck can combat loose skin and provide a slim and sculpted appearance to the lower abdomen. Mini tummy tuck surgery in Atlanta is most commonly sought out by patients who have carried children, lost a significant amount of weight, battle stubborn lower belly fat, or are simply dissatisfied with the appearance of their lower abdomen.

The primary difference between a mini-tummy tuck and a traditional tummy tuck surgery is during the surgery for a traditional tummy tuck, your tummy muscles will be tightened, and liposuction may be used to remove excess fat. A complete tummy tuck is needed to correct diastasis recti, which is a common condition after pregnancy. A mini tummy tuck is only performed on the lower part of your abdomen.

What Are The Benefits Of A Mini Tummy Tuck?

Mini tummy tuck surgery in Atlanta is a great option for patients with sagging abdominal skin. By tightening the skin on the lower belly, mini tummy tuck patients can enjoy a refreshed, youthful appearance. Compared to traditional tummy tuck surgery, a mini tummy tuck can provide life-changing results with significantly less recovery time. By using the most advanced techniques, our team at Astra Plastic Surgery can help you achieve your dream body with a mini tummy tuck.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For A Mini Tummy Tuck?

Mini tummy tuck is only recommended for patients within their ideal weight range and who have stubborn fat around the lower abdomen.

During your consultation for a mini tummy tuck, our surgeons at Astra Plastic Surgery will examine the location of the extra fat on your abdomen and the sides of your waist to determine if you are a candidate. We will describe how a mini-tummy tuck can improve your midsection and the surgical steps taken during your procedure.

What Can I Expect During Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery In Atlanta?

General anesthesia is used for most mini tummy tucks, but local anesthesia may be used for your mini tummy tuck. You should expect the surgery to last approximately ninety minutes. Our Atlanta plastic surgeon will make a small incision, about 4 to 8 inches long, just below your navel, remove any fat from the area, and then pull the skin tight. Sutures are used to close the incision, and your abdomen is wrapped in a compression bandage to hold the soft tissues in place. Some results may be noticed immediately; however the full results can be seen once fully healed.

What Can I Expect After Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery?

After your mini tummy tuck, you will experience mild discomfort, swelling, and tenderness in your lower abdominal area. The severity of these symptoms is different for each patient. It is important to remember that all mini tummy tuck patients heal at different rates depending on a variety of factors. Before sending you home, our plastic surgeon will give you thorough post-surgery instructions in order to maximize your results and minimize the recovery period.

While not as invasive as a traditional tummy tuck, it will take your body time to heal—usually at least 6 weeks. However, most people return to work after two weeks after mini tummy tuck. It’s important not to overdo it and if your job is strenuous or involves heavy lifting, speak with your doctor to see when you can reasonably expect to return to work.

Constipation is common after a mini-tummy tuck. You will need to rest for the first two weeks, after which you can resume some light activities. The healing process will take time, so you should be patient with your body and get plenty of rest.






What Results Can I Expect From A Mini Tummy Tuck?

During your mini tummy tuck consultation, our body contouring experts at Astra Plastic Surgery will discuss your expected results, as well as how to maintain them. The results of a mini-tummy tuck can be long-lasting. Atlanta mini tummy tuck patients are encouraged to maintain an active lifestyle with consistent dieting and exercise to help maintain their results.

How Much Does A Mini Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of mini tummy tuck surgery is different for each patient. After your consultation, we can give you the exact price of your mini-tummy tuck. Astra Plastic Surgery accepts payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing. You are welcome to check with your insurance provider about your coverage options. However, mini-tummy tuck is considered elective surgery and is generally not covered by insurance.
