Abdominoplasty with Liposuction

Abdominoplasty with Liposuction

Radiance Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine

When researching cosmetic procedures of the abdomen, a traditional tummy tuck often comes to mind for many patients.  However, some patients may be candidates for a mini tummy tuck. This subset of patients do not have the same extent of excess skin and soft tissue above the belly button as they do below.  The Radiance team is able to tailor your treatment plan to remove the stubborn belly fat and if needed further sculpt your core with additional liposuction and achieve your aesthetic goals.

To explore how a mini tummy tuck can help you achieve your desired figure, contact Radiance Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine to schedule your personalized consultation.

What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

To fully understand how a mini tummy tuck works, it’s important to delve into the specifics of a traditional or full tummy tuck to understand what makes them different. A traditional tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, requires an incision that runs from one hip to the other and a second incision that goes around the navel, allowing your plastic surgeon to work in both the upper and lower abdominal regions. Traditional tummy tucks can address skin laxity, repair separated or damaged abdominal muscles, and remove excess fat. Recovery from a traditional tummy tuck usually requires 4-6 weeks.

In comparison, a mini tummy tuck result is achieved using a smaller incision above the pubic bone. Only the lower abdomen is addressed during a mini tummy tuck.

What Benefits Does a Mini Tummy Tuck with Liposuction Offer Patients?

  • Stunning Results with Smaller Incisions—Both a traditional and mini tummy tuck aim to eliminate excess abdominal tissue and sagging skin. While the overall goals of these procedures are similar, the mini tummy tuck focuses on the lower abdomen.

  • Less Time Under Anesthesia—Due to the complexity of the procedure, a mini tummy tuck is still performed under general anesthesia. However, it can be completed in as little as one to two hours rather than the expected two to four of a traditional tummy tuck.

  • Faster Recovery—Mini tummy tucks require less correction than traditional tummy tucks, so the downtime required is minimized.

Good Candidates for a Mini Tummy Tuck with Liposuction

If you are close to your ideal weight but still experiencing skin laxity and stubborn fat beneath your belly button, a mini tummy tuck with liposuction could be the perfect approach to achieving your dream figure.

How Is a Mini Tummy Tuck with Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is performed first to sculpt the patients silhouette prior to the mini-tummy tuck.  The incision is placed in a preferred, pre-agreed upon location that is discussed preoperatively.  The length of the scar will be minimized while still achieving all the benefits of a mini tummy tuck.  If needed, the lower abdominal muscles can even be tightened to further flatten the patients abdomen. 

Once your doctor is satisfied with the results, a drain will be used as necessary, and the incision will be carefully closed to minimize scarring.  At Radiance Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery your care is not over once the surgery is complete, but we are her to help you throughout your entire body transformation journey.
