A mini abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck, is often confused with a full tummy tuck. We’re here to educate you on the difference between the two so you can make the decision on what is best for you. At L.A. Vinas, we treat all of our patients with the utmost care, ensuring their desired outcomes are met, and the best procedure is used to achieve their desired outcomes.

Explaining The Difference

Mini Tummy Tuck and a Full Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck is performed by removing a smaller portion of the skin on your lower abdomen without cutting into your belly button or doing any tightening of the muscles of your upper abdomen. This makes it a very specific procedure for which you have to be a good candidate in order to avoid any undesirable outcomes. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have loose skin specifically on the bottom portion of your abdomen.

On the other hand, a standard tummy tuck is a lot more invasive, and includes removing excess skin and fat throughout your abdomen, and tightening your muscles to achieve a firm look throughout. This procedure is for people who have excessive abdominal fat throughout, significant loose skin or muscle separation.

Choosing L.A. Vinas

Mini Tummy Tuck Provider

A mini tummy tuck is ideal for individuals who have just a small amount of skin sagging in the lower portion of their abdomen. This often happens post-pregnancy, when a woman is in otherwise great shape. Diet and exercise often does not help with stretched out skin, and this is when a mini abdominoplasty is a great option.

The best way to figure out what is right for you is to come in to L.A. Vinas for a one on one consultation with our Board Certified Doctor. He and his team will help guide you through what you can expect with each of our cosmetic surgery offerings, and decide the best route to take for you.
