Mini Tummy Tuck
If you only want to remove a small amount of excess fat or skin on your stomach, a full tummy tuck is probably too comprehensive in scope.
A mini tummy tuck addresses excess skin, fat, and damaged muscles below the belly button rather than the entire abdomen.
Why should I consider a mini tummy tuck?
Breaking down the Benefits
Minimal ScarringBecause tissue is removed from a restricted area, your doctor can create a small and easily concealed incision just above the pubic bone.
Less Time off Your Feet
As a limited version of a full tummy tuck, this procedure is less invasive and consequently requires much less time to recover from.
Unless you become pregnant or regain substantial weight, the results of your mini tummy tuck are usually permanent.
Can I Afford a Mini Tummy Tuck?
Even if a mini tummy tuck seems better suited to your goals than a traditional tummy tuck, you may still hesitate over the cost: on average, the procedure costs between $4,000 to $15,000.
While the procedure is typically considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance, your doctor should be able to arrange a financing plan so that you can pay affordable installments over time.
