A mini tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that flattens the look of the belly, but with less invasive techniques than a standard tummy tuck. It renders a shorter scar, and primarily focuses on excess skin and abdominal wall laxity below the belly button. If your area of concern is limited to this area, this may be a better alternative to a full tummy tuck.
How is a Mini Tummy Tuck Performed?
Similar to a regular tummy tuck, the procedure will begin with an incision in your abdomen. However, in this case, the treatment area is solely focused on the area below your belly button. Dr. Marvel will tighten the underlying muscles and remove any excess skin, giving you a tighter, sexier and flatter contour.
How Do I Know if a Mini Tummy Tuck is Right for Me?
If your main area of concern is concentrated below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck may be for you. However, if your excess skin extends above the belly button, you may need to consider a full tummy tuck. Dr. Marvel will discuss all your options with you during your initial consultation so you can determine which procedure is right for you.
What are Mini Tummy Tuck Costs?
As with any cosmetic procedure, we understand costs may be a cause of concern for many of our patients in Nashville and the Middle Tennessee area. However, Dr. Marvel does offer financing options to help his patients pay the cost over time.
