Mini Tummy Tucks (Mini Abdominoplasty) SF Bay Area

July 02, 2016 Joseph A. Mele, MD

When is a Mini Tummy Tuck enough? It’s a question I answer every day. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery options for Abdominal Rejuvenation range from Liposuction to Tummy Tuck, with the Mini Tummy Tuck covering some of the middle ground. Unlike Liposuction alone, the Mini Abdominoplasty can tighten the skin and muscle wall of the lower abdomen. But a Mini Tummy Tuck doesn’t do everything a Tummy Tuck can, and it’s important to know the benefits, as well as the limitations, before proceeding.
