There are several different techniques that are utilized in this tummy tuck procedure in Beverly Hills.
Dr. Calvert may recommend a mini-tuck, traditional tummy tuck, or lipo-abdominoplasty.
A tummy-tuck, or “mini-tummy tuck” (what we call a modified abdominoplasty) can correct these problems to give patients a flatter, firmer stomach.
What is a mini-tummy tuck?
A mini-tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure to improve the appearance of the lower abdomen in both men and women.
It employs similar techniques of the traditional tummy tuck, but on a smaller scale.
If muscle separation issues are not overly significant, a mini-tummy tuck may be a better alternative to the standard tummy tuck.
This type of abdominoplasty is just right for the patient who only has a small excess of skin and fat.
You may want a mini-tummy tuck if you have:
- Excess loose skin or stretch marks
- Birthed one or more children
- Experienced significant weight loss
The Beverly Hills Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure
During a mini-tummy tuck, a small incision is made across the bikini line.
The excess loose skin is removed and excess fat may be removed during liposuction.
As opposed to a traditional tummy tuck, the incisions are smaller with less recovery time, typically 1-3 weeks.
Prior to your mini tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Calvert will provide instructions for how to help reduce the risks of complications both before and after your tummy tuck procedure.
Before you decide to have tummy tuck surgery in Beverly Hills, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Calvert.
