Mini tummy tuck scars
The incisions placed to perform a mini tummy tuck are shorter than those in a standard abdominoplasty. No incisions are needed around the navel, but the incision placed from hip to hip is about the same length. A mini abdominoplasty can be performed with local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia.
What is the difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck?
The incision for a mini tummy tuck is less noticeable than the incisions made for a full tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck does not reposition the navel. The goal of a mini tummy tuck is to create a flatter, tighter abdomen. The recovery time for a mini tummy tuck is shorter than after a full tummy tuck procedure. However, a mini tummy tuck is still major surgery.
