Mini abdominoplasty is completed by cutting the supra-pubic skin and removing fats through liposuction. Patients who are good candidates for a mini abdominoplasty are generally those who have low or medium level drooping in their abdomen. Getting rid of stubborn fats with exercising and diet is not always possible. To eliminate the droopy look in your belly, you should take an early step and benefit from mini abdominoplasty before the degree of drooping advances.
What is the Difference Between Full and Mini Abdominoplasty?
Mini abdominoplasty is different from the normal one. An incision all along the abdomen is not made in mini abdominoplasty. Only a small incision is made to wrap up the drooping skin and fats are removed with liposuction. Therefore, recovery process after the mini abdominoplasty is shorter than the one of the normal abdominoplasty. As only a small incision effect will be created in mini abdominoplasty, the location of the belly button will not change and no incision is made in the tummy. However, because the location of the belly button changes in the normal abdominoplasty, two incisions are applied in total. There is an average 1 cm-incision in mini abdominoplasty, and location of this scar is adjusted to be hidden underneath the underwear. Incision scar is not much visible.
