Mini-Tummy Tuck, The Sequel
After going over mini-tummy tucks, how the procedure works, and what the recovery is like, it’s time to talk about getting the most out of your time in surgery. Mini-tummy tucks are a great procedure to be paired with abdominal liposuction.
Mini-Tummy Tucks with Abdominal Liposuction
A mini-tummy tuck is often combined with abdominal liposuction in order to remove fat on the hips and flanks that mini-tummy tucks cannot tackle on their own. Abdominal liposuction helps Dr. Shapiro create a beautiful balanced waistline from front to back.
Liposuction is a perfect combination for a mini-tummy tuck as it induces skin retraction to form fit over the top of your new, tight abdominal wall. Imagine that your skin is like shrink-wrap. When the foundation beneath it (fat) is removed, it shrinks to the new foundation beneath it (muscle). Dr. Shapiro most often uses ultrasonic liposuction to help the skin retract for the most attractive and lovely results possible.
Abdominal liposuction in combination with a mini-tummy tuck achieves ideal results forming a perfectly proportional waistline from any angle. The resulting waistline is contoured, long and well balanced, while the abdominal wall has been tightened back into a flat, athletic looking tummy.
