The Mini Tummy Tuck

The Mini Tummy Tuck is a partial abdominoplasty.

It is like a regular abdominoplasty, but the incision is shorter and smaller than the traditional tummy surgery. In a mini Tummy Tuck, the tummy button is not relocated either.

For patients that need to trim skin above the umbilicus button and don't have extra fat or skin can benefit from the partial Tummy Tuck. They just need a flatter stomach.

A partial abdominoplasty is a good procedure for patients that have a minimal excess of fat and skin below the tummy button. Muscle laxity cannot be solved or addressed during this cosmetic surgery procedure.


Who is a good candidate for the mini-abdominoplasty?

A partial abdominoplasty is an ideal procedure for certain types of patients:

  • For women with stretch marks below the umbilicus due to pregnancy
  • Is a good procedure for patients that have small amounts of skin that would need to be removed
  • In some patients, some liposuction is needed to remove extra fat that could be located in the front abdominal area
  • Patients that had lost some weight.


If you are a candidate, the regular tummy can be avoided with a partial abdominoplasty.

This is not a cosmetic procedure indicated for patients that experienced a massive weight loss. People that had massive weight loss need a post-bariatric plastic surgery.

During a partial abdominoplasty, the incision is smaller and shorter.
Less extra skin or fat is trimmed from the lower body midsection.
A mini abdominoplasty is a perfect surgical procedure for patients who need a subtle transformation or enhancement of their midsection.

The patients that had a mini abdominoplasty are patients with a small amount of extra skin and fat around their midsection. During the partial abdominoplasty, it takes a small incision to remove the excess tissue and fat.

The abdominal muscles are still tightened during the procedure. Then the skin will be stretched downward and stitched in place. Unlike a traditional abdominoplasty, the belly button does not need to be repositioned.

In general, those who receive Abdominoplasty have a lot of extra skin around their midsection. Often they also have a protruding belly. This procedure provides them with a more dramatic transformation than the partial option. But, if you are not sure which option is best for you, it is wise to talk to the surgeon or send us your pictures. They can assess your body type and potential outcomes. Then, together you can decide which procedure is best.

If you are between both options, schedule a consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons here in Mexico. We will help you make the right decision.
