Located in Green and Beachwood, Ohio, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Steven S. Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S, performs mini tummy tucks for patients in and around Akron, Cleveland and Canton.
A mini tummy tuck allows Dr. Carp to gently reshape and contour the lower abdomen with a procedure that requires just one incision to be made near the bikini line. Unlike a full abdominoplasty, a partial abdominoplasty focuses on the soft tissue just below the belly button and above the pubic region.
A mini tummy tuck is a phenomenal option for patients that do not require extensive sculpting on a larger area of their stomach. A partial abdominoplasty requires only a single incision instead of multiple incisions to free up some of the soft tissue around the belly button. For our patients, this means a much smaller scar and a shorter recovery time. Within just a few months, the scar will begin to fade, and they are often completely hidden under any clothing including bikinis.
This procedure begins with the patient being administered general anesthesia before a small incision is made near the bikini line. Excess skin is removed, and the soft tissue is adjusted for a flat and even appearance. In some instances, a device may be used to remove excess pockets of fat similar to liposuction. During your initial consultation, Dr. Carp will give you a better idea of what to expect after your mini tuck and answer any questions. Enjoy viewing these before and after photographs of the mini tummy tuck as performed by Dr. Carp.
