A mini tummy tuck can improve the appearance of excess fat and loose, stretched out skin in the lower abdominal area. The main difference from an abdominoplasty is the belly button is not moved.
Abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin attempting to creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.
The most common causes of this include: pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity, or prior surgery. Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if you are physically healthy and have realistic expectations.
