Mini Tummy Tuck in Danville

Mini Tummy Tuck

A Mini Abdominoplasty or Elite MD Mini Tummy Tuck works to smooth the part of the abdomen below the belly button. It is most useful for people who have problems with this “poochy” area at the bottom of the tummy. It does not directly address the rest of the abdomen, like a full tummy tuck does. The scars are shorter, quicker recovery time, and the belly button does not need to be moved during this procedure. The Elite MD Mini Tummy Tuck provides very good results for the right candidates and is performed on both men and women.

During the Elite MD Mini Tummy Tuck procedure an incision is made within the “bikini” or “boxer” line under the abdomen; this helps to hide the scar under clothes following the procedure. Excess skin and fat are removed, the muscle beneath is tightened, and the skin is re-draped to provide a pleasing body shape. Often the stretching of the skin will work to give the belly button an improved appearance by pulling it downward, though the belly button itself is not directly manipulated during the surgery.

During your consultation at Elite MD, your plastic surgeon will examine you and discuss recommendations for the specific type of tummy tuck to yield the best results. The Elite MD Mini Tummy Tuck procedure is often done in the office.
