The “Mini” Tummy Tuck
For those with less significant skin excess, a mini-tummy tuck can be used to correct this laxity. The incision for this procedure is typically the length of a c-section scar, is hidden lower than a c-section scar, and is less conspicuous. Even with the mini tummy tuck technique, at the time of the procedure, if the stomach muscles are found to be positioned widely apart, they are brought back towards the midline, helping to narrow and flatten the belly. Once the procedure is complete, liposuction is often used for further refinement and sculpting.
