Our Full Guide To The Mini Tummy Tuck In Sydney
Mini tummy tuck surgery is a surgical procedure available at our clinic. The treatment can provide patients with a flatter abdomen and the removal of excess skin, which can be good after a large amount of weight loss. If you would like to learn more about procedures such as the mini abdominoplasty or the fully tummy tuck, be sure to read on.
How Does The Mini Tummy Tuck In Sydney Work?
The mini tummy tuck in Sydney is a specific liposuction procedure. During this treatment, the cosmetic surgeon will make an incision just above the pubic region, quite similar an incision that is made during a caesarean section. The incision is used to gain access to the treatment area, enabling the surgeon to remove excess skin as well as tightening the muscles underneath.
Patients who take advantage of a mini tummy tuck in Sydney usually have the majority of problems underneath their belly button. Patients who have this mini tummy tuck procedure should also be around their target weight and follow a healthy lifestyle; this to maintain the results from the treatment after it is completed.
Is A Mini Tummy Tuck In Sydney Different From A Full Tummy Tuck?
The treatment goal of the mini tummy tuck is the same as that of the full tummy tuck. Of course, the technique used is slightly different, since the mini tummy tuck only addresses the parts of the belly underneath the belly button. So, this type of treatment may not be suitable for everyone. However, it does mean that the scar of this surgery is on the bikini line and can be hidden by clothing.
Who Is Eligible For A Mini Tuck?
There are a variety of patients who can take advantage of the mini tummy tuck. In most cases, the patient will have an area of localised skin and fat; this should be situated in the area between the belly button and the pubic bone. If the excess skin and fat is more widespread, the mini tummy tuck might not be the best procedure for this patient.
Who Should Not Have A Mini Tuck?
Most women who intend on having more children usually wait with the mini tummy tuck until they had their last child. Some of the results obtained during this procedure can be affected by another pregnancy – this includes the separation of the rectus muscles of the abdomen – so some patients may be advised to hold off on their treatment.
As mentioned earlier, some patients will have a broader area with excess skin and fat. If this area goes above the belly button, a mini tummy tuck might not provide the results the patient is after. Thus, it is always best to discuss your aesthetic goals with the cosmetic surgeon before your treatment.

Does A Mini Tummy Tuck Leave A Scar?
The mini tummy tuck will leave a scar; this because the incision cannot be made in a natural crease like it would with a breast reduction or a blepharoplasty. Some procedures need an incision to access the treatment area; this includes treatments such as the tummy tuck or the breast lift. However, the scar left from the incision can usually be hidden under swimwear or your regular clothes.
How Do I Recover After A Mini Tummy Tuck?
While most patients recover quickly from this kind of procedure, it is essential to take sufficient recovery time to rest. When a patient does activities that are too strenuous during their recovery, it may cause the healing process and could increase swelling of the treatment area. So, it is important to take enough time to recover.
Patients who had a general anaesthetic should take extra care after their procedure. It is recommended to have someone with you for the first 48 hours after the treatment. You should also have someone drive you home and not sign any important documents for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
While strenuous exercise is not recommended, it is advised that patients do some light walking after their mini tummy tuck. Some gentle walking can promote blood flow and stimulate the healing process. Please note that it also decreases the chance of complications such as blood clots.
A patient can feel a little uncomfortable after a procedure; this is usually some bruising and swelling. Your cosmetic surgeon can provide you with some medication for pain management during this time. Surgeons can also prescribe some antibiotics to prevent infections during your recovery.
Most patients will have to wear a special compression garment while they recover. The garment in question is meant to keep the new shape of the treatment area, but it also reduces side-effects such as bruising and swelling after the procedure. While the garment can be taken off for showers, the garment should be worn most of the time outside of that.
Is This Procedure Eligible For Medicare Rebate?
This question is best discussed with Dr Lanzer. In some cases, loose skin can cause serious discomfort and even further medical problems, so Medicare can apply in some cases. However, this is dependent on each individual situation.
