This is where you may find your ultimate solution with a mini tummy tuck in NYC at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery. A mini tummy tuck from a Manhattan-based plastic surgeon, can address these issues and achieve a slimmer, more balanced midsection.

How it Works
Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure
You’ll come to our New York City office for a confidential mini tummy tuck consultation with your surgeon. They will listen to your unique concerns and goals for a mini abdominoplasty. Their priority is to provide personalized care for every patient. Based on your goals, concerns, and examination, your provider will tailor a specialized surgical plan that specifically addresses your anatomy and concerns.
We highly encourage you to ask questions during your consultation. The goal of the consultation is to make you feel comfortable and confident about the surgical plan. Your surgeon will go over the procedure in detail, and then go over the postoperative recovery period. You will also be provided with a detailed manual that outlines preoperative instructions, surgical day details and a postoperative timeline to return to normal activities. You will leave the consultation assured, confident and excited for your upcoming surgery.
Your surgery will take place at our in-office OR in Manhattan. The procedure takes around 1 to 2 hours. Your surgeon will make an incision along the lower abdomen and remove the excess fat and skin.
The recovery for a mini tummy tuck is usually 1-3 weeks.
Your surgeon, our Patient Care Coordinator, and the rest of our team will be there to guide and support you throughout your post-surgery care. We will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your recovery and results.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
