A tummy tuck is consistently one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. As the procedure has improved over time, different techniques have been developed to provide even more patients with results that reflect their personal anatomy and goals.
Dr. Brian Bassiri-Tehrani is a highly trained tummy tuck surgeon who specializes in abdominoplasty and other cosmetic procedures for the body. When patients visit him at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery, he provides a surgical experience tailored to their goals, making him an excellent choice for those considering a mini tummy tuck in NYC.
What is a mini tummy tuck?
Compared to a traditional or “full” abdominoplasty, a “mini” tummy tuck utilizes a shorter incision and only addresses loose skin in the lower abdomen.
Who is a candidate?
When patients come in for a mini tummy tuck in NYC, they typically require less correction than those who need a full abdominoplasty.
Ideal surgical candidates are in generally good physical health, close to their ideal weight, and non-smoking.
Typically, those who want a tummy tuck after pregnancy will benefit the most from a full abdominoplasty.
What can you expect from recovery?
A mini tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, so there’s going to be a required recovery period. Some patients experience a shorter recovery time compared to a full tummy tuck, because the incision is shorter.
In most cases, you can resume light activities within 1 to 2 weeks.
