It Is Suitable For

What is Mini Abdominoplasty?

Mini Abdominoplasty tightens and flattens the area below the belly button, which is also called the lower abdomen, the part that seems difficult to tone up for many women. Also commonly known as Mini Tummy Tuck, the procedure is an ideal treatment for the ones who wish to eliminate the stubborn lower abdominal fats. The treatment is not a weight loss process and it requires you to have a balanced body weight prior to the surgery.

How It Works

The procedure works by making an incision about 4 to 8 inches long on your lower abdomen to correct the excess fat and loose skin accordingly. Results are usually permanent and effective if you are close to your original weight, maintain a healthy diet, and no longer planning for pregnancies in the future.

In the case where there is quite an amount of excess fat, liposuction is required to be performed in combination with the mini abdominoplasty.

Procedure for Mini Abdominoplasty

1. Consultation and examination on your body weight and the lower belly appearance
2. Application of anesthesia
3. Incision will be made around 4 to 8 inches at your lower abdomen
4. Excess fat and loose skin will be removed
5. Closing of the incision while tightening the skin

Advantages and Limitations of Mini Abdominoplasty

· Enhances flatter and tighter lower abdomen
· Reduces stretch marks
· Removes excess fat
· Permanent results
· Faster recovery compared to full abdominoplasty

· Not effective for obese patients
· May affect future pregnancies (and the body, after future pregnancies)

Treatment Preparation

· Stop smoking at least 4 weeks before the treatment

· You may be required to stop taking blood-thinning medicines for at least 1 week before the surgery.
· Do inform the doctor if you have any medical history

Mini Abdominoplasty Post Care

· Position pillows under the knees and back for support when in bed
· Keep moving feet to increase circulation around the legs
· You may lie on your side or back
· Wear elastic compression garment for 4 to 6 weeks
· Only sponge bath is allowed; you may have shower 7 to 10 days after surgery

Q1: Since normal abdominoplasty removes more fat, is it better than mini abdominoplasty?
A1: Not necessarily. Some people only have excess loose fat in the lower region of their abdomen, which makes mini abdominoplasty a more suitable procedure for them.

Q2: Will the results last?
A2: Yes. For as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Q3: Will it improve the appearance of my stretch marks?
A3: In most cases, yes. Often, the stretch marks are removed together with the loose skin.

Q4: Will I be able to return to work immediately?
A4: No. Please note that this treatment is not for outpatients. Therefore, you will be required to rest at home for at least 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment.
