From our doctor:
"Sagging of the abdominal muscles, fat deposition of the lower abdomen, skin cracking and other sagging elements are the obvious signs of this problem. Although there isn’t an excessive weight gain, the stomach tissue deterioration can irritate a person. Mini tummy tuck surgery is one of the solutions developed for fast and effectively remedy, especially for these problems occurring in the lower abdomen."
This procedure can be applied to people with fat deposition in the lower abdomen (below the belly button), sagging of the abdominal muscles, excess skin and cracks. Under the age of 18, this procedure is not applicable.
After analysis of medical history and physical examination, the technical operation criteria are evaluated to determine the operation method. The anesthesiologist checks any obstacles before the operation and necessary blood tests are done before the surgery. In case of chronic diseases that may affect the operation, other additional tests or consultations may be necessary. If you use any blood-thinning medication it should be discontinued at least 1 week in advance the operation. Smoking can impair wound healing in some patients. There is no need to stop using drugs necessary for other chronic diseases.
Mini tummy tuck surgery is done under general anesthesia in the hospital environment. Surgery time ranges from 1-1.5 hours depending on the additional processing. The process is performed by your plastic surgeon according to the method decided before the operation. Mini tummy tuck surgery is often done together with liposuction. A horizontal incision is made so it remains under the underwear. Lower abdominal tissue is removed, the abdominal muscles are tightened. Excess abdominal skin below the belly button and fat tissue are removed. Temporary drains can be placed under the breast to relieve excess blood.
In the 4th post-operative hour, food intake starts and the patient gets off bed to start walking. Because of tension in the abdominal region, patients walk in the inclined potion for a period of time. Patients are discharged on the same day. The pain is most usually less then what is expected and pain relievers can be used to provide adequate assistance. Patients can take a shower after 1 or 2 days. Some level of edema and swelling can occur in the abdomen and it passes completely in about 1-2 weeks. Patients can return to daily life in the same week. Post-operation abdominal corset should be used for the first 2-3 weeks. Mild exercise can easily be done in time.
Temporary problems: tenderness, pain, tightness.
Short-term problems: bleeding, infection, wound healing problems.
Long-term problems: bad scarring, asymmetry, skin-pot and aesthetic problems.

Therefore, this is a relatively quick and comfortable operation than a full tummy tuck surgery. Surgery time is shorter. Incisions are smaller and the incision marks leave less trace.
