“I would like to get a Full Tummy Tuck, but I can really only afford a Mini Tummy Tuck. (I am also getting a Brazilian Butt Lift) Do you think a mini tummy tuck will make my stomach flat, and will I have nice results? I have saggy skin below my belly button, but also fat in my upper abdomen… so I am not sure what to do. I need some help, please! Thank you.”, writes a RealSelf user.
“While you are a better candidate for a Lateral Tension Abdominoplasty (full tummy tuck), you can get some improvement with a mini tummy tuck. I would recommend undergoing laser liposuction of your abdomen which will likely give you as good a result as a mini tummy tuck. In addition you can undergo AFT (fat transfer) to the buttock region which you mentioned. The latter is not a good procedure to be performed at the same time as an LTA.”, explains Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S.
