Frequently Asked Questions

Mini Abdominoplasty

Does a mini tummy tuck lift your pubic area?

Depending on your specific anatomy, you may require liposuction or suspension of the pubic skin/fat. All abdominoplasties lift the suprapubic skin to a certain extent.

How do I know if I need a mini tummy tuck v. a traditional tummy tuck procedure?

If your excess skin and fat is limited to under your belly button and you do not have a significant diastasis recti (widening of the abdominal muscles after pregnancy), you are likely a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck.

How much is a mini tummy tuck in NYC?

A mini tummy tuck in NYC at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery costs between $9,000 to $15,000.

What is the difference between a mini tummy tuck and a traditional tummy tuck?

With a mini tummy tuck, the only tissues that can be addressed is below the belly button. The procedure can tighten a diastasis recti under the belly button and remove excess skin and fat under the belly button. The belly button is not released.

A full tummy tuck involves transposition of the belly button and exposure of the abdomen above and below the abdomen as well as surgically tightening the abdominal wall. This allows the surgeon to tighten and contour the tissue above and below the belly button. The incision is longer in a full tummy tuck to afford optimal visualization.

Who qualifies for a mini tummy tuck?

A patient with mild/moderate fat and skin excess under the belly button qualifies for a mini tummy tuck.
