Tummy Tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) is a popular body contouring procedure and often done in conjunction with liposuction procedure.
For our Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire Mini Tummy Tuck patients, the first step to receiving a flatter abdomen begins with the initial consultation. We offer a customized approach as each body type differs and needs an individualized treatment. Dr. Kalantarian specializes in aesthetic appropriate tummy tuck procedures from mini tummy tuck to extensive revision abdominoplasty procedures.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?
A Mini Tummy Tuck, or Mini Abdominoplasty, is an effective option for those whose lower abdomen displays poor muscle tone or may have excess skin and fat. This may be the result of significant weight loss or childbearing for women. After reviewing the patient’s medical history, abdominal skin laxity, and patient’s expectation of the procedure’s results, Orange County Dr. K Plastic Surgery can evaluate that patient’s candidacy for a Mini Tummy Tuck procedure.
What Can I Expect From a Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure?
During a Mini Tummy Tuck procedure a small incision (shorter than the traditional Abdominoplasty incision) runs horizontally along the lower pelvis making it easily concealed beneath underwear or a bathing suit. Liposuction is implemented during the procedure for the removal of excess fat to create a pleasing contour to the midsection. To also address the issues of muscle laxity, a muscle tightening technique is introduced to improve muscles that have been separated or overstretched.
