You exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, but that little bulge in the lower abdomen is still there to remind you of a pregnancy or of a time before weight loss. No workout routine seems to correct the problem, and you are frustrated knowing that skin and muscle, once stretched, seldom contract as much as you’d like. A mini-abdominoplasty may be all that you need.

As the name suggests, mini-abdominoplasty is indicated for correction of stretched lower abdominal muscles and may be coupled with liposuction. Also known as the mini-tummy tuck, this operation is designed to correct the potbelly or bikini bulge deformity.

Mini-abdominoplasty requires a transverse incision, usually extending from groin to groin across the pubic hairline. The incision is designed to be covered by most panties. Muscles are tightened from the pubis to the navel (belly button), and any excess skin is removed before the incision is closed. Most patients return to a desk job within a week after mini-abdominoplasty.

There are several alternatives to mini-abdominoplasty for abdominal contouring. Refer to the sections on Abdominal Liposuction, Limited Liposuction, Abdominoplasty, and Panniculectomy to learn more.
