New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center offers mini tummy tucks to patients from Orlando and nearby locations.
A mini tummy tuck targets just the skin and fat below your belly button, making it a “smaller” version of a full abdominoplasty. Also called a partial abdominoplasty, this procedure is used at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando to give our patients a tighter, flatter stomach. The surgery can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the lower abdomen. Dr. Jan V. Karlin welcomes mini tummy tuck patients from across Central Florida, including men and women from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Apopka, Sanford and Winter Park.
While you are gathering information about partial abdominoplasty, please make sure to peruse our assortment of Orlando mini tummy tuck before and after pictures. With these images, you will have a visual idea of what kind of results you can expect from the procedure.
Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
Our mini tummy tuck patients in Orlando are men and women who have some excess fat and loose skin on their bellies. However, their condition is usually not severe enough to warrant a full abdominoplasty; they usually have excess skin in the lower abdomen. In fact, our mini tummy tuck patients frequently do not need their abdominal muscles sutured back together or their belly button repositioned.
How is a Mini Tummy Tuck Performed?
When you undergo a mini tummy tuck with us in Orlando, it is normally performed as an outpatient procedure. The operation typically takes one to two hours usually under general anesthesia. Dr. Karlin will start with a small incision along the bikini line. He will then detach the skin and fat from the muscle of the lower abdomen. The skin will be stretched down, and the excess will be removed. Frequently, liposuction is used to provide contour. At the end of the surgery, Dr. Karlin will close the incisions with sutures, skin adhesives, tape or clips.
What is the Recover Process for a Mini Tummy Tuck?
It is common to experience some swelling, bruising, pain and discomfort for the first few days after a mini tummy tuck. Patients may also have numbness below the belly button and some residual bleeding.
You will be advised to rest for about two weeks after your partial abdominoplasty in Orlando. A compression garment will need to be worn for about a month to support your abdomen and help you heal. Your sutures will be removed within a two weeks, and you should be able to return to work in one to three weeks.
What are Orlando Tummy Tuck Costs?
Orlando mini tummy tuck prices vary depending on the individual needs of each patient. Dr. Karlin and his staff can offer more details on costs during a scheduled consultation. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
