One variation of abdominoplasty is the mini-tummy tuck. This uses a shorter incision just at or above the pubic region, similar to the incision for a cesarean section. A mini tummy tuck is a modified tummy tuck that uses a C-section-like incision to tighten muscle and remove excess lower abdominal skin.
Like a traditional tummy tuck, the mini removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. However, this procedure focuses only on the area below the belly button, not the entire abdomen. This is often performed on women who have mild sagging or post-baby pooch, stretch marks from pregnancy, or C-section scarring.
