Mini Tuck

Tighten the area of the stomach between your belly button and pubic area.

What is a Mini Tuck for?

They’re most effective for people who are within their recommended weight range but have a little pooch — maybe from pregnancy or quick weight gain — that doesn’t seem to flatten with diet or exercise.

Having a minimally invasive alternative to other more intense, surgical options is a great choice for someone who doesn’t want a long recovery time! UGlow is one of the Top 10 providers of Sculptra in the country because it’s amazing. Sculptra is truly multipurpose, you can use it almost anywhere. From your face to your behind, we can treat almost any area using this collagen stimulant.

How does a Mini Tuck work?

  • Mini tummy tucks are an in-office procedure that should only be done by a certified plastic surgeon. Recovery can take 6 weeks or more
  • A mini tummy tuck is less invasive than a full tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty

  • A mini tummy tuck flattens the lower abdomen and can help eliminate the pooch that often occurs in the lower belly

More about Mini Tuck

During the procedure, the muscles in your lower abdomen may be sutured together, but this isn’t visible from the outside. Excess skin will be trimmed and laid flat.

Whether or not your stretch marks will be removed really depends on their placement on your body and how much excess skin you have.

Diastasis recti, the separation of ab muscles, often occurs during pregnancy. It affects your full stomach above and below your belly button (think the six-pack muscles), so a full tummy tuck is a better course of action to correct this.

Procedure for a mini tummy tuck:

During a mini tummy tuck procedure, an incision about 4 to 8 inches long will be made to your lower abdomen.

This is about the length of the average C-section scar. In fact, if you’ve had a C-section, they’ll likely use the same incision for a mini tummy tuck, although it may be longer. The surgeon may tighten loose muscle and remove any excess skin, resulting in a flatter lower stomach. Results are best if you’re close to your original weight and not planning to get pregnant again.

What to expect:

You’ll likely wear an abdominal binder for several weeks to help support your abs as they heal. You’ll see some results immediately, but you’ll see the full results once the swelling goes down, around 6 weeks.

Results should be permanent, barring weight gain or pregnancy.
