Although abdominoplasty remains a popular option for treatment of excess abdominal skin and fat with muscle laxity, liposuction with dermolipectomy (skin excision) can achieve similar results with less recovery and a shorter scar.
With this “mini tummy tuck” procedure, excess fat is removed from the abdomen, hip and waist regions with tumescent liposuction and excess skin is removed from the lower portion of the abdomen. The belly button remains in place and does not need to be repositioned. The muscles are not usually tightened with this procedure, although it could be done if necessary.
