New York Mini Tummy Tuck

Not everyone requires a full-scale tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty. For many patients, a "mini tummy tuck" may be the appropriate surgery. This procedure is designed for patients with only a small amount of loose, redundant skin in the lower abdomen, and for patients with lax abdominal muscles.

The mini tummy tuck differs from the conventional, more extensive tummy tuck in that there is only a short, horizontal incision placed just above the pubic hairline. This incision placement allows the best possible camouflage.

We remove the section of excess skin, tighten the muscles if needed, and carefully close the incision with buried, self-absorbing sutures, so suture removal is unnecessary. Discomfort is mild and easily controlled with medications.

While you can choose to have your initial consultation and after care appointments at our Connecticut plastic surgery offices or in New York, we will most likely perform the procedure at our accredited New York plastic surgery facility. Most of our patients return to work and to moderate physical activity after four to seven days.

If you think you are a candidate for a mini tummy tuck in New York, Dr. Erlich at Profiles & Contours invites you to request a consultation or call 212.861.4100 today to schedule an appointment today. You can meet with Dr. Erlich at our Connecticut cosmetic surgery center or in New York City to discuss your surgical expectations and tummy tuck questions.
