What does the procedure entail?
A mini tummy tuck is needed when the excess skin is concentrated below the belly button. It is often used to correct c-section scar deformities or low hanging skin. It does not focus on the upper abdomen musculature or belly button.
What are the alternatives to this procedure?
Dr. Gurley will let you know if a tummy tuck, a mini tummy tuck, or liposuction is best for you, given your anatomy and your goals.
What can I expect?
We support patients through their mini tummy tuck recovery process, and encourage them to take notice of the small but gradual improvements that occur as each day goes by. The recovery process for a mini tummy tuck is shorter than for a full tummy tuck, with most people making a full recovery 1-2 weeks after surgery.Start a Conversation
Who is a good candidate?
Many people are good candidates for mini tummy tuck surgery. When there is excess skin, stretch marks, bulging or puckering low on the tummy, a mini tummy tuck may be a great option for you. Dr. Gurley will help you discern what procedure or combination of procedures is best for you.
Real Artistic Outcomes
A mini tummy tuck operation can renew your confidence in yourself and make you look as good as you feel. Excess skin below the belly button is removed through an easily hidden, small incision low on the abdomen. The results obtained from a mini tummy tuck can far exceed non-surgical methods of body sculpting. Many patients are encouraged by the results Dr. Gurley is able to achieve.
