Mini Tummy Tuck


Mini Tummy Tuck A mini-tummy tuck subtly raises excess fat and skin below the belly button, creating a more appropriately contoured lower abdomen. The mini-tummy tuck targets the lower part of the tummy, and is especially beneficial to women whose lower abs have been weakened by pregnancy.

The muscles can also be tightened during a mini-tummy tuck, though not quite as effectively as during a full tummy tuck.
