The “Mini-Dissection” Tummy Tuck
The “Mini-Dissection” tummy tuck is the technique performed on our patients using minimal dissection.
This Mini-Dissection technique is performed under local anesthesia with sedation, and allows you to return home the same day.
There are two basic techniques used to flatten a protuberant abdomen.
Liposuction alone can produce a thinner abdomen for some patients with excess fat but firm skin.
However, for those with excessive skin and laxity of their abdominal muscle, a tummy tuck (complete or partial) may be their only solution.
The tummy tuck involves an incision around the belly button and another long incision that runs in the lower abdomen. The abdominal skin is lifted and the muscle is tightened with sutures, then the excess skin and fat is removed.
Anesthesia without general anesthesia
In general, local anesthesia with sedation is used.
Most patients return to their normal activities within one to two weeks.
As for any surgical intervention, complications are possible but not common, such as injection, bleeding, excessive scarring, sensory changes, cutaneous necrosis, asymmetry, numbness, pain, seroma (liquid accumulation), etc.
