Mini-abdominoplasty is a procedure used to remove fat and tighten skin in the lower abdominal region only, as opposed to the entire abdominal region that is treated with an abdominoplasty. Mini-abdominoplasty works well for those who have a slight “pooch” or a small, localized area of fat between the belly button and the pubic area.
Mini-abdominoplasty is similar to abdominoplasty, but involves smaller incisions, takes less time to complete, and recovery time is lessened, and there is less scarring. The results of mini-abdominoplasty are similar to abdominoplasty. At our center serving Kansas City and Liberty, Missouri, Dr. Thompson will help you determine if an abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty is the best procedure to meet your goals.
