A mini tummy tuck focuses on the lower area of the tummy. This is a great solution for women who have given birth and lost their lower abdominal strength in those muscles. A mini tummy tuck can slightly tighten these muscles, but not near as much as a complete tummy tuck.
It is imperative you speak to a specialist to find out if a Mini Tummy Tuck is the right choice for.
Mini Tummy Tuck Cost
The typical cost of a mini tummy tuck is approximately $1800, but the range can be as high as $6,000. With this wide of a variance, I would strongly encourage you to seek out a credible surgeon that has many befores and afters for you to compare.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
The recovery from a tummy tuck surgery can vary depending on the health, age and pain tolerance of the patient. Mini-tummy tuck patients are required to wear a compression garment for up to 2-3 weeks following your surgery. You should avoid over-straining with strenous activity for about 4 weeks after the surgery.
One last note is that because a tummy tuck is elective surgery, your insurance will not cover it, so it is out-of-pocket.
