Home Tummy Tuck Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

April 6, 2018

We know that it can be hard to find the surgical procedure that will provide you with your ideal results. There are so many different variations of the tummy-tuck procedure offered by different surgeons, and each option promises to deliver amazing results. One of these options is the mini tummy tuck.

A mini tummy tuck is an excellent option for individuals with sagging skin, excess fat, and loose muscles in the lower abdomen. If you have these issues in both your lower and upper abdomen, the traditional tummy tuck procedure is the better option.

The incisions used for a mini tummy tuck are smaller than those of the traditional tummy tuck, which means the recovery period will be shorter.

At Emmett Plastic Surgery, we can help you figure out which procedure will provide you with the results you are looking for. If you are struggling with the appearance of your abdomen, contact us to schedule a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Emmett.
