The mini tummy tuck is perfect for those who have a small area of loose skin and fat below the umbilicus.
As above, just removing the fat (liposuction, cold treatments, ultrasound, radio frequency) will leave loose skin behind, which will actually look worse.
The procedure involves removing both skin and underlying fat through an incision that is made just below the fat collection. The extra skin and fat is pulled downwards, and the excess is removed. The length of the incision depends on the width of the area of loose skin and fat.
This procedure can often be done in the office under local anesthetic. No special garments are needed, the sutures all dissolve, and there is little downtime.
