A mini tummy tuck, or mini abdominoplasty, can be an ideal procedure for women to tighten up lower abdominal skin after childbirth, or either women or men who may have plateaued with diet and exercise and want to address loose skin in the lower abdominal area. A mini tummy tuck, as opposed to a full abdominoplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure primarily recommended for patients with excess skin or fat located below the navel.

For women considering a mini tummy tuck, it is important to consider whether or not the patient intends to have children, or more children, in the future. Pregnancy can cause abdominal muscles to separate and the skin to stretch, so it is advisable that female patients wait until after they are done having children before undergoing a mini tummy tuck.

With a number of procedures available that target the abdomen, including liposuction and extended abdominoplasties, it can be difficult to decide whether or not a mini tummy tuck is right for you. Dr. Reilly and his staff understand the many factors—psychological, physical, and financial among them—that go into choosing plastic or cosmetic surgery. Care and compassion are equally as important as world-class results. We can help you decide if this procedure is right for you.
