Remove excess abdominal fat and skin

This procedure involves removing excess abdominal fat and skin to achieve a flatter tummy. During a mini tummy tuck, your surgeon will create a smaller incision above your bikini line. Your surgeon will then remove excess fat and skin from the area. Once the desired amount is removed, your surgeon will suture the incision line to close it. A dressing will be placed over your wound to protect it from injury and prevent infection. Once your wounds have healed, you will achieve a flatter and firmer abdomen.

Ideal candidates for a mini tummy tuck

During your consultation, we will assess your condition and goals. This allows us to determine if you are a good fit for the procedure. In general, the ideal candidates for a mini tummy tuck are:

  • Non-smokers
  • Those who are physically and mentally healthy
  • Those who have realistic treatment goals
  • Those with large amounts of abdominal fat or excess skin that do not respond well to diet and exercise
  • Those with a stable weight

Contraindications for a mini tummy tuck

We do not recommend this procedure if:

  • You are allergic to the anaesthetic.
  • You are taking medications that can increase your risk of bleeding.
  • You have a poor wound healing ability.
  • You have unrealistic expectations.
  • You live a sedentary lifestyle.

The recovery period

After your procedure, surgical drains may be present in the treated area. This will help prevent body fluids from accumulating in your wound. You should expect mild swelling and bruising in your abdomen. These discomforts will subside after a few weeks. As you heal, we recommend that you avoid heavy lifting and other strenuous activities. You can do light walking exercises to prevent blood clots from forming. This will also help improve blood flow in your abdominal area.
