With the advent of mini tummy tuck surgery, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham has been able to provide a more specialized surgery to patients seeking body contouring, plastic surgery that aims at helping healthy patients target excess skin or fat in areas of the body. Dr. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon who performs countless tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck surgeries each year. With a mini tummy tuck, patients who desire a more contoured lower abdomen, without the full procedure of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can find satisfying results.
A full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from both the upper and lower abdomen. It also includes the tightening of the muscles that make up the abdominal wall, muscles that tend to spread with weight gain or, more specifically, fat gain in the region. This muscle spread is also typical in women after pregnancy and is more common that you might think. With a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck), only the lower abdomen and lower abdominal muscle wall are treated. Additionally, there is no re-positioning of the belly button, and often no area of the abdomen above it is treated with this procedure. The amazing results are available to you to see in these pictures of patients before and after a modified abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) with Dr. Oldham.
