Mini Tummy Tuck in Salt Lake City & Layton, Utah

A mini tummy tuck is a modification of a tummy tuck; it addresses the “pooch” of the lower abdomen. In some women, the lower abdomen is particularly stretched with pregnancy, causing problems limited to the lower abdomen.  A mini tummy tuck is an ideal procedure for these women.

Differences Between a Full Tummy Tuck and a Mini Tummy Tuck

  • A mini tummy tuck generally has a shorter scar, although this is not always the case. The length of the scar is varied depending on the degree and location of loose skin.
  • A mini tummy tuck generally does not address the skin or muscle above the belly button.
  • A new belly button is not created in a mini tummy tuck. 
  • The recovery of a mini tummy tuck is generally easier. A patient is able to walk upright right away. 
  • The cost of a mini tummy tuck is generally less than that of a full tummy tuck.

Simulate a mini tummy tuck by pulling the lower abdomen down. If the abdomen improves significantly with that maneuver alone, a mini abdominoplasty may be indicated. If there is still looseness of the upper abdominal skin or the belly button is unattractive, the patient may require a full tummy tuck to achieve their goals.


How Much Does a Mini Tummy Tuck Cost?
