Although : Although the two procedures have a similar name, they differ in the amount of skin removed, the amount of muscle work performed, and the final incisional scar. The mini tummy tuck treats the minor pouching out of the lower belly caused by stretching of the lower abdominal muscles. It is primarily a muscle tightening procedure. The tummy tuck treats two conditions: a muscle separation above and below the belly button; and excessive or loose skin in the belly. It is really two operations, a muscle repair and a skin excision. ...Read more

Today : Today most plastic surgeons encourage early ambulation with the tummy tuck procedure. We ceratinly advise our patients to walk around the house upon discharge and if they desire, they may go up and down stairs (with assistance initially) cautiously and slowly. It is important to limit the actual abdominal muscle activity after this surgery for at least several days and sleeping in a recliner (easy to get in and out of) is recommended to our patients. ...Read more

Tummy tuck options: The best answer for you would require a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon experienced in all of the procedures.

What is a good way to tighten my abs without a tummy tuck?

Options: To tighten the muscles, it's back to old-fashioned exercise. Planks, sit-ups, sit-backs, crunches, pilates, yoga, and various other exercises have all been recommended. For the skin, there's little to do to tighten it without surgery. Some of the newer radiofrequency (rf) machines like thermage, velashape, venus freeze, etc. May help a little. For the fat, you could try coolsculpting. ...Read more

Will i gain weight in weird places after a mini tummy tuck? I’ve heard that liposuction sometimes causes fat to accumulate in weird places on the body. Is this a risk with a mini tummy tuck? .

No: Removing lower abdominal skin and fat, done by mini tummy tuck does not make the fat go somewhere else. However if you gain weight, you will enlarge body areas that still have fat tissue left: upper abdomen, thighs arms, neck etc. It's not the fat traveling in weird places, it is that your body proportions have changed. ...Read more
