Mini Tummy Tuck Mexico
Patients who are interested in a subtle transformation of their midsections should consider a mini tummy tuck. Also called a partial abdominoplasty, the surgery is a less invasive alternative to the traditional tummy tuck offered at Perfection Makeover and Laser Center. It removes a smaller degree of excess fat and sagging skin, making it ideal for patients whose needs do not require a full tummy tuck. If you would like to learn more about this procedure, or are interested in undergoing a mini tummy tuck at our Cancun, Mexico surgical facility, please send us an email today!
A mini tummy tuck is typically recommended for individuals with a small amount of extra abdominal skin and fat beneath the navel. During a mini tummy tuck, a small incision is made, and excess fat and tissue are removed. The abdominal muscles are tightened, and the skin is stretched downward and stitched into place. A mini tummy tuck procedure usually does not include the repositioning of the navel.
Someone with a lot of extra skin and a protruding abdomen is probably better suited for a traditional tummy tuck procedure. A traditional tummy tuck is optimal for men and women who desire a more dramatic transformation. If you are wondering whether a traditional tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck will accomplish your goals, it’s best to speak to a plastic surgeon who has plenty of experience with abdominal surgeries. He or she can evaluate your body type, help you determine your expected outcome, and suggest the procedure that is right for you.
If you’re debating between a traditional and mini tummy tuck, consider a consultation with our Mexico cosmetic surgeons. We would be happy to provide a recommendation.
The mini tummy tuck improves the appearance of the abdomen and has several advantages over the traditional surgery. The scars from a mini tummy tuck are smaller than those of a conventional tummy tuck – so much so that a mini tummy tuck is sometimes called a “scarless” tummy tuck. The mini version is a shorter procedure than a traditional tummy tuck, with less downtime. It’s also a cheaper procedure. The patient usually returns to his or her normal daily activities faster than if he or she was recovering from a full tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck will sculpt and tone the abdomen, giving the patient a nice shape. The physical results of a tummy tuck very often lead to an increase in self-confidence and self-esteem.
A mini tummy tuck is generally very safe, but it does carry a slight degree of risk, as all surgeries do. Potential complications include bleeding, hematomas, infection of the surgical wound, accumulation of fluids underneath the skin, and reactions to the anesthesia. The patient may experience swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort following the procedure; these symptoms can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. It’s also important to properly care for the surgical wound to avoid any infection.
