Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can be a great option in case of excess sagging of the skin and loose muscle tissue in the abdominal area that is resistant to both diet and exercise.

Full tummy tuck is usually used to rejuvenate the entire abdominal area, both above and below the belly button. A tummy tuck is considered a less extensive variation of full abdominoplasty and is typically used in cases where the abdominal muscles and the minimum amount of excess skin are limited to the lower abdominal region under the belly button.


Mini tummy tuck procedure can benefit patients who have a small amount of excess skin and fat or protruding of the lower abdomen.

If you have a small amount of excess skin and fat below the belly button and do not need a full abdominoplasty procedure, if your general health is also suitable for undergoing a surgery, you may be an ideal candidate for mini tummy tuck surgery. The final decision will be made by your surgeon. 


There are several things that patients are required to do during the preparation stage of mini tummy tuck procedure include stop smoking as well as avoiding of drugs and herbal supplements that could increase bleeding such as anti-inflammatory medicines, fish oil and aspirin.


This surgery can be performed by sedation under general, epidural or local anesthesia according to the preference of surgeon and patient. Surgeons apply a small incision above the pubic area and usually some liposuction is also performed. Abdominal fat is absorbed, excess supra-pubic skin is removed, and in case of muscle laxity, the medial part of the abdominal skin is also removed. Finally, the skin is sutured with umbilicus preserved.


As a result of the more limited treatment area, typically a smaller incision is used for a mini tummy tuck, and the recovery time is usually slightly shorter and the scar is less than the full one. 


Risks and complications related with the mini tummy tuck include:

  • Hematomas (blood collections) 
  • Infections
  • Blood clots (venous thromboembolism)
  • Lung-related problems

Possible side effects of mini tummy tuck may include:

  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Delayed healing of the wound
  • Numbness

Mini tummy tuck procedure creates so many satisfied and happy patients which can easily be seen in the patients’ ratings of around 96% satisfaction.


Mini tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and tissue from the area between the belly button and pubic area, to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile. As it can be seen in before and after photos and read in the patients’ reviews on the websites, the outcomes of this procedure are quite effective and satisfying.


What is Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure which can give the patients' lower abdomen a smoother look with less scarring than a full tummy tuck.

Is Mini Tummy Tuck Painful?

Mini tummy tuck procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, although it can be performed under local anesthesia, as well. In either case, patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure. If pain is felt during the recovery period, painkillers prescribed by the doctor will be effective enough.

What Is the Difference Between Mini Tummy Tuck Vs Full Tummy Tuck?

Full tummy tuck is usually used to rejuvenate the entire abdominal area, both above and below the belly button. A tummy tuck is considered a less extensive variation of full abdominoplasty and is typically used in cases where the abdominal muscles and the minimum amount of excess skin are limited to the lower abdominal region under the belly button.
