We see many patients in our office who are unhappy with their bodies following pregnancy and childbirth. This is because the lower abdomen can be hard to target after this major life change and women may find themselves with sagging skin and drooping tissues in this area. Similar situations can happen following dramatic weight loss or after certain abdominal surgeries that leave the tissues loose in this area. We can repair these concerns and help you feel better about your body with a mini tummy tuck in Highland Park.
The traditional tummy tuck is used for individuals who are unhappy with the shape of their bellies and who want to remove excess skin and other tissues from the area. Individuals should be close to their goal weights, should have no plans for future pregnancies or weight gain and should not have pockets of excess fat in the area. This is because a tummy tuck is only useful for removing skin and is not to be used for getting rid of fat.
A mini tummy tuck differs from a traditional or full tummy tuck in a few key ways. First, the surgeon will not need to make as large of an incision. This can give patients that toned abdominal look that they have been missing. Second, unlike a full tummy tuck, the mini procedure cannot address extra tissues above the belly button but can only address the lower abdomen.
You may wish to combine your mini tummy tuck with one or more other cosmetic procedures for the best results. For example, you may want to use liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat, or you may want to try a noninvasive option, such as laser skin resurfacing to tighten the skin further across the area. A consultation with our team in Highland Park can help you understand your procedure options.
Now you can restore your figure and feel fabulous about your figure with a mini tummy tuck at Body by Bloch at our offices in Glenview or Highland Park, Illinois. If you are ready to get started with this life-changing treatment, contact us to set up your consultation appointment today.
