Mini Tummy Tuck
Based on the outcome of consultations with Dr. Doherty, patients may find that they do not need a full abdominoplasty to achieve a flat, trim stomach. A “mini tummy tuck” may be a good alternative for patients who have a moderate amount of loose skin below the navel (belly button), as the incision is smaller and the recovery time shorter. This procedure is often combined with liposuction of the abdomen and waist to improve the entire abdominal contour. These patients do not have any surgical manipulation of the umbilicus (belly button).
