A Mini Tummy Tuck, also known as a partial abdominoplasty, is a specialized cosmetic surgery designed to enhance the appearance of the lower abdomen. Typically performed under general anesthesia, this procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat, as well as the tightening of abdominal muscles, focusing on the area below the navel. The surgery generally lasts around 2 hours, aiming to provide a more toned and sculpted abdominal contour with minimal scarring.
This surgery is particularly effective for addressing concerns such as a protruding lower abdomen, loose skin, and weakened abdominal muscles that may result from factors such as pregnancy or weight loss. The primary goal is to enhance both the aesthetic appearance and self-confidence of the patient by creating a flatter and more defined lower abdominal profile.
