Mini Tummy Tuck in Los Angeles, CA

These days everyone is getting nipped, tucked or injected and a mini tummy tuck performed at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute by board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., could be the best belly-smoothing out solution for all Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area residents who want to have a flatter tummy and tighter abs.

What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

When diet and exercise fail to achieve the waistline you desire, a mini tummy tuck can be appropriate for those patients who only have fat below their navel. Do you want to have tighter underlying muscles with enhanced abdominal contours, less fat in the tummy area and some smooth skin in the midsection that highlights a toned abdominal structure? If you have a gentle roll of tummy fat that is largely isolated to below your navel line, then a mini tummy tuck with Dr. Schwartz can be ideal for solving your abdominal issues and getting you back to being bikini ready.

Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Right For Me?

The mini abdominoplasty is performed on patients with mild to moderate tummy contour changes, relatively little excess skin or weakness of the abdominal wall. In the mini abdominoplasty or mini tummy tuck, the navel incision is avoided. Dr. Schwartz may also perform liposuction at the time of your mini tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery to fine tune and sculpt your abdominal region.

Elements of a Mini Tummy Tuck

This type of procedure focuses on one part of the abdomen and requires a smaller scar than a full tummy tuck. Dr. Schwartz may opt for endoscopic-assisted surgery, which is less invasive and reduces the amount of time the procedure takes, although this approach is generally reserved for special cases of abdominal muscle weakness and laxity.

What Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure?

A mini tummy tuck with Dr. Schwartz requires an incision that is similar to that used for a C-section. Once the incision is made, Dr. Schwartz removes excess fat and tightens the abdominal muscles with sutures, using liposuction for fine-tuned sculpting and to eliminate any remaining fat.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure?

Following your mini tummy tuck procedure, your incision site will be stitched and bandaged, and Dr. Schwartz may have you wear either an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and to support your abdomen as it heals. It’s very important that you follow Dr. Schwartz’s instructions on wearing this garment and caring for the bandage in the days following surgery to enhance your healing process. Dr. Schwartz will also instruct you on how to best position yourself while either sitting or lying down to help ease any potential pain. Your recovery will take several weeks, and Dr. Schwartz will prescribe medication as needed to reduce the pain. Swelling should begin to disappear in a matter of weeks and resolve completely in a few months.
