For a number of reasons, our abdomens tend to attract and retain our excess fat. Diet is a large contributing factor to weight gain in the abdomen, but for some, genetics and body composition deny them the sleek physique they desire. For some of Dr. Oldham’s patients, however, a full abdominoplasty is not necessary to treat the affected area. In these cases, Dr. Oldham recommends a mini tummy tuck or modified abdominoplasty which is performed via body contouring surgery that tightens the abdominal muscles, and liposuction which removes fat deposits. A mini tummy tuck removes less excess skin than a full abdominoplasty. As such, mini tummy tuck surgery is recommended for men and women whose abdomen have retained skin elasticity. Because of the less-invasive nature of a mini tummy tuck, it costs less. Aside from questions concerning cost, you may want to see pictures of patients before and after a mini tummy tuck with Dr. Oldham.
