Mini Tummy Tuck Case Study

This case study is based on a 44yr old mother, who has two children.
Her skin became floppy and loose after her two pregnancies and she was unhappy with her newly acquired thick waist and fat deposits on her knees, thighs, buttocks and hips. Despite healthy eating and exercise her post pregnancy body shape persisted.

A mini tuck and liposculpture was discussed and decided upon. Liposculpture was used to contour the abdomen and a skin pull was performed to tighten up the skin in that area. The thighs, knees, buttocks, hips and waist are sculptured into slimline curves with the assistance of Liposculpture. Her before and after images can be viewed here -
It is important to remember that a mini tuck doesn't replace a traditional abdominoplasty and it's not suitable for people with large areas of excess skin or where the stomach muscles need repairing.
The mini tuck is extremely popluar and gives a safe, beautiful and efffective way of treating the 'in between patient'.
