When patients come in for a tummy tuck, they have loose skin that isn’t going away on its own. No matter how much weight you lose, that loose skin will always be there getting in the way of the results you want. For some patients, it’s more noticeable than others. It can be related solely to age. The skin doesn’t have the same elasticity it used to. Even if the sagging is mild, you should never feel embarrassed to want to look your best. The effects on your confidence and wellbeing aren’t always based on how much work has to be done. For patients with more severe sagging, though, it can be life changing. So what’s a mini tummy tuck, and what should you expect during your recovery? For many patients, it’s just what it sounds like. It’s a smaller procedure with smaller results. One of the primary concerns is if it’s enough. How do you define mini? Is it better than a standard tummy tuck?
