What Is A Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is sometimes called a partial abdominoplasty and is a cosmetic surgery that concentrates on the lower portion of the abdomen. The mini abdominoplasty specifically targets the area below the belly button to eliminate loose hanging skin and fat from the lower abdomen, leaving a smoother, firmer, and more toned-looking appearance.

How Does The Mini Differ From The Full Abdominoplasty?

Most individuals who have cosmetic concerns with their abdomen are more likely to be candidates for a full abdominoplasty, as the mini would not provide them with the drastic improvements they are looking for.

When comparing the mini tummy tuck vs. full tummy tuck, the biggest difference is that the mini can only provide minimal correction to loose skin and excess fat and only involves the lower abdomen below their belly button. The full procedure provides overall correction to the entire abdomen, including repositioning the belly button if needed, and allows Dr. Angelina access to the abdominal muscles so they can be pulled together and repaired. Also, the full can be used to eliminate a great deal of excess skin and fat, providing more correction, better contouring, and more noticeable results.

Who Is A Candidate For a Mini Tummy Tuck?

Mini abdominoplasty surgery is most suitable for men or women who are in fairly good shape but have a minimal amount of loose sagging skin and excess fat in their lower abdominal region. Mini tummy tuck candidates should be in good health and close to their ideal weight. It is recommended that women who wish to become pregnant wait until after their family is complete before undergoing the surgery to maintain long-term results.

Procedure Steps


The patient is sedated using general anesthesia.


Dr. Angelia will create an incision just above the pubic bone which will create a scar but it can be hidden under most clothing.


Liposuction may be used to remove some pockets of excess fat.


The loose skin will be pulled tighter and the excess cut off.


Dr. Angelina will then close the incision with expertise to mitigate scarring and cover it with surgical tape and bandages.


Depending on the circumstances she may use drainage tubes just below the incision to help prevent excess fluid build-up while the incision heals.


Dr. Angelina will recommend a compression garment that needs to be worn for about six weeks to help lessen. discomfort and provide support while the incision heals.


Any drainage tubes and bandages will be removed by Dr. Angelina at a follow up appointment.


Some pain, discomfort, swelling, and bruising are normal after a mini tummy tuck but will subside. Dr. Angelina may provide a prescription for pain medication to help ease the initial discomfort if needed.

Getting The Most From Your Surgery

Combining additional procedures with your mini abdominoplasty can create final results that are more dramatic. A popular combination that women often choose include a breast augmentation and a mini tummy tuck with liposuction.

Schedule A Consultation


Your mini tummy tuck results will take anywhere from six months to a year to fully manifest. It is normal for you to have swelling for several months after your surgery and Dr. Angelina will advise you to be diligent in wearing your compression garments properly to get the best results.

Your swelling will dissipate and your incision scar will become lighter over time. After about four weeks, you should be able to return to your exercise schedule and your final results should yield a flatter and smoother-looking lower abdominal area.

My surgery for a tummy tuck / lipo / fat transfer to the hips was successful with zero complications. My healing experience was above average for a person that has a medical history like mine. My TT scars are next to perfect within 3 weeks of surgery. This could have not been possible without someone like Dr. Angelina who places the patients health above a $$$.

My experience with Surgicare Arts & Aesthetics was beyond expectations. I am a 57 year old male that had Gastric Sleeve Surgery by Dr. Chris on 8/30/18. 9 months later and 150 lbs lost I had abdominoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Angelina. Dr. Angelina, Stacy, and Christine welcomed me at every visit making me feel like I was a friend as much as a patient. They answered every question pre and post operation. I plan on having additional skin removal procedures at Surgicare Arts in the near future. I am so thankful I found them.
