Who Is a Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Adults who would like to tone and tighten their lower abdomen could be good candidates for a mini tummy tuck. To be an ideal candidate for the surgery, you should meet the following requirements:

    • Be in good physical health
    • Be finished having children
    • Be relatively close to your ideal weight
    • Have realistic expectations
    • Have the desire to tighten your abdominal muscles and/or skin
    • Have stubborn excess fat around the lower abdomen

    What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

    If you think a mini tummy tuck may be right for you, the first step will be a consultation with Dr. Stephens. During this discussion, you can tell the doctor about your specific aesthetic goals and ask any questions you have about the surgery. Dr. Stephens will work with you to create an effective treatment plan that fits your unique needs.

    A mini tummy tuck is typically performed as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia. Once you’re asleep, Dr. Stephens will begin by making an incision between four and eight inches long in your lower abdominal area. Then, depending on your treatment plan, the doctor may tighten your abdominal muscles or remove excess skin. In some cases, liposuction will be performed as part of the procedure to eliminate excess fat. Finally, Dr. Stephens will close your incision with sutures and bandage the area. In total, the surgery typically takes between one and three hours to complete.

    Recovery After Mini Tummy Tuck

    Patients typically have to wear a compression garment for two to three weeks after undergoing a mini tummy tuck. You’ll need to rest for two to three days after the surgery, but after that, you should be able to gradually resume light activity. However, you will need to refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least five or six weeks.
