Mini Tummy Tuck Philadelphia, PA

Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery can provide exceptional results that reduce the appearance of loose and sagging skin around the tummy. We offer the AWAKE mini tummy tuck cosmetic surgery procedure in our Langhorne, PA medical center under local anesthesia.

Awake Mini Tummy Tuck

The procedure reduces excess skin that typically is a result of childbirth or weight loss. A mini tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction in Philadelphia to help improve results. This procedure does not address muscle tears or the relocation of the belly button that is often necessary with more extensive skin removal.

Dr. Goldfarb will meet with you, perform a thorough physical examination and discuss your personal cosmetic goals to determine if the in-office Mini Tummy Tuck is right for you.

Am I a candidate for the mini tummy tuck?

Dr. Goldfarb will evaluate your health, medical history, and cosmetic goals before recommending a treatment plan. The Mini Tummy Tuck is not appropriate for patients who are obese, have certain medical conditions or have minimal/excessive loose skin to be treated.

Is there a long recovery after a mini tummy tuck?

We perform mini tummy tuck procedures under a local anesthetic and most patients leave Center for SmartLipo and Plastic Surgery within a couple of hours of surgery. We recommend a 2 – 3 day mild recovery period to ensure maximum results.

How soon will results be noticeable?

Patients typically see results right away, although best results are seen after initial swelling has subsided and the area has healed. Dr. Goldfarb will suggest compression garments to be worn for a period of time after in-office lipo treatment for maximum results.

What are the benefits of a mini tummy tuck?

For women, a mini tummy tuck can help to tighten loose skin that can be the result of both pregnancy and c-section delivery. For men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight, the procedure will reduce sagging skin and support increased muscle tone as a result of diet and exercise.

Results from your procedure can be maintained through regular exercise and a healthy diet that reduces the risk of weight gain.

Other and Non Surgical Options

Laser liposuction removes excess fat while helping with tightening the skin. If you have a minor issue around your midsection, or aren’t ready for surgery, you may be well suited for one of our nonsurgical body contouring procedures to help tighten skin, such as Vivace microneedling.
