Mini Tummy Tuck Procedures for Patients in Tampa

mini-tummy-tuckA mini tummy tuck, or a partial abdominoplasty, can help to enhance the definition in the lower portion of the abdomen and is a less invasive alternative to a traditional tummy tuck. The procedure is especially beneficial for women who are having trouble getting rid of tummy sag following a pregnancy, as well as patients who have committed to diet and exercise, but are still left with some stubborn fat around their tummy.

At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. John Roach offers mini tummy tuck procedures for patients from Tampa, Lutz, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Trinity, and other Florida cities. A highly experienced and reputable plastic surgeon, Dr. Roach can help you achieve the sleeker, more sculpted abdomen you desire through a partial abdominoplasty.  As part of his holistic approach to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Roach may recommend yoga or personal training sessions before and after your mini tummy tuck procedure to further enhance your results and help you maintain your sleek, attractive abdomen long after your surgery.

What to Expect During and Following your Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure:

Similar to a conventional tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Roach will remove excess fat and loose skin to create a firmer appearance and more defined contours for the abdomen. If necessary, Dr. Roach may also employ liposuction to remove any additional fat tissue. The procedure will focus only on the lower abdomen, with the treatment area extending from directly above the pubic region to the navel.

Most patients can go home the day of their procedure, but you should expect some temporary swelling, discomfort, and numbness in the area. You can return to work just a few days after your surgery. While complications are rare, infections and blood clots may form, but can be easily treated by your doctor.
