Featuring the Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck removes excess fat and tightens muscles for those that need that little bit of extra help to get the abdomen back in shape. This procedure can help to tighten and tone the lower stomach for a flatter, slimmer waistline, with less downtime than a full tummy tuck. Many people feel unhappy with a loose abdomen, with excess skin and fat, and they might think that a tummy tuck is too drastic – but a mini tummy tuck could be the perfect treatment for you if you have a bit of extra tummy and would like some help to look your best.
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?
A mini tummy tuck in Houston is a smaller scale abdominoplasty that typically addresses the abdomen from the panty line and the belly button. It is designed for people who are near their ideal weight but are having trouble losing a bit of excess fat, or their abdominals need tightening. A mini tummy tuck can be a perfect restorative procedure for women post-childbirth want to restore a firmer abdomen after having children. During the procedure, excess skin can be removed, as well as stubborn fat, and muscles tightened to restore a flat, firm tummy, once again.
Mini Tummy Tuck VS Traditional
A mini tummy tuck gives you the benefits of a full tummy tuck on a smaller scale. A mini tummy tuck can tighten abdominal muscles and remove excess skin similarly to a traditional tummy tuck, except that the incision is much smaller. This is a great option if you are within range of your ideal weight, as the procedure is less invasive, but can create a flatter, tauter abdomen. A traditional tummy tuck is for those with greater deposits of stubborn fat and excess skin. The incision is much larger, extending from hip bone to hip bone.
Benefits of Mini Tummy Tuck
There are many benefits to having a mini tummy tuck, as every tummy tuck, traditional or mini, will be tailored to your physique and your unique requirements. Some of the benefits include:
