Mini tummy tuck surgery

What is Tummy tuck?

tummy tuck Lithuania

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a frequently performed surgical procedure to remove excess skin and part of unwanted fat from the abdomen. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, which means that a patient won’t feel any discomfort during the surgery. In order to remove loose skin and fat, a surgeon makes an approximately fifteen centimetre long incision that goes across the lower part of the belly. It is done beneath the bikini line, so after scars have healed they are barely visible. To achieve more satisfying results the surgeon removes excess fat tissue and, what is especially important for weight loss patients and mothers, performs tightening of the abdominal muscles. Subsequently, the surgeon closes the incision and applies wound dressings, bandages and a compressive garment, which is necessary for the patient’s recovery. This procedure is considered to be low-risk; however, possible complications have to be evaluated individually.

What are the types of tummy tuck?

There  are two main types of the tummy tuck: mini tummy tuck (also known as partial) and full tummy tuck (also known as complete). There are some differences and similarities between these two types (Tab.1).

How to choose the right one?

The type of the procedure mostly depends on the abdominal area which bothers you. If the lower abdominal area requires correction, then mini tummy tuck is a proper choice. However, if the problematic area is above the navel, then full tummy tuck is indicated. In any case, your doctor will recommend a technique which suits you best.

Full tummy tuck versus mini tummy tuck

Further we discuss the nuances of the different types of the tummy tuck in order to help you to understand it better

Duration

The duration of a full tummy tuck procedure is about 2 to 5 hours, whereas the mini tummy tuck usually takes half the length of it.

Technique
Operative site

The skin-fat flap is smaller in the mini tummy tuck compared to the full surgery. It includes the area between the pubis and the umbilicus.

The navel

In the full tummy tuck procedure a new navel is formed while the mini tummy tuck does not require doing this.

The scar

Scarring is inescapable in both mini and full tummy tuck procedures. However,  the scar after the full tummy tuck is longer  than the scar after the mini tummy tuck.

Postoperative pain

Both procedures are equally painfull but after the mini tummy tuck the painfull area is noticeably smaller as compared to the full tummy tuck.
