For some patients, a mini-abdominoplasty, or “mini tummy tuck”, is the best option to tighten abdominal muscles for an improved waistline. The procedure incorporates a short incision to eliminate excess skin and fatty tissue below the belly button. Dr. Patterson places the incision on the lower abdomen, below the bikini line.

Mini-abdominoplasty works best for patients whose primary concern is a flatter and tighter lower abdomen. The procedure is not a substitute for weight loss. Dr. Patterson tailors each mini-abdominoplasty surgery to the specific needs and goals of patients.
