What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck can be a daunting concept for men and women who wish to have a firmer, flatter stomach and removal of any excess skin due to the necessary relocation of the naval. Unlike a tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck procedure eliminates this need by surgically separating the skin between the lower abdominal area/bikini line and the naval. Following the removal of excess skin from the area, the flap is realigned, providing a more taut stomach.

What should I expect?

Most patients can undergo a mini tummy tuck in two to three hours at a clinic without having to stay overnight. Patients should be aware that all surgeries requiring an incision will inevitably produce some swelling and bruising in the surgical area, though this should subside in just a few days. Following this, the patient is free to return to their daily regimen if they feel able. Mini tummy tuck stitched dissolve gradually and often disappear within a fortnight. Scarring is rarely a problem.

After a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A compression garment should be worn by patients until the recovery process is complete to provide greater support and control swelling. After around fourteen days following the procedure, most patients are able to return to work.

Mini Tummy Tuck prices

Mini tummy tuck prices vary dependent on the physician and the clinic, but the average UK price is between £2000 and £4500- which most patients feel is very reasonable for the added confidence boost and slimmer new look attained through the mini tummy tuck procedure.
