Mini Tummy Tuck: The Perfect Balance

Many people are unsure of whether or not they need a full tummy tuck. Those who come to The Plastic Surgery Group for a tummy tuck in Albany know that we view tummy tuck procedures on a continuum.

Personalizing Your Procedure

We assess each individual’s needs and determine the extent of surgery appropriate to achieve the best results. At the comprehensive end, some patients benefit more from a full tummy tuck (hip to hip). On the conservative end, others will require only a partial or mini tummy tuck.

What Are the Qualifications?

The mini tummy tuck offers the benefit of shorter, less-noticeable scars and a potentially faster recovery. This approach is ideal for those with the following criteria:

  • Minimal redundant, or excess, tissue
  • No abdominal muscle repair required
  • Excess tissue isolated to the lower abdomen
