Mini-Tummy Tuck

Conveniently located to serve Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland

Do you have excess or sagging skin on your abdomen that won’t go away with diet and exercise? If so, you may benefit from a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. This procedure can give you a smooth and tight belly by removing extra skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles.


You’ve tried working out. You’ve tried dieting. No matter what you do or what you try, your belly just doesn’t look as good as you want it to! Especially when you are wearing the perfect outfit and you can see your belly pouch!

A Mini-Tummy-Tuck is the perfect operation for that!

A Mini-Tummy-Tuck is perfect for:

  • When you want to be able to wear any type of swimwear and have your belly look great!
  • Wearing tighter dresses and outfits without your belly having a “pouch”
  • Having a smooth tight belly to show!

A Mini-Tummy-Tuck will

  • Remove a small to medium amount of skin from your lower belly (about a third to a half of the skin from your belly button to your groin hairline)
  • Flatten your lower belly
  • Improve the skin around your belly button

Whether it is from pregnancy, time, or just the way you have always been, many woman have a small pouch on their belly. Others have some loose skin that they feel self-conscious about. A mini tummy tuck can fix it!

We perform the operation in our office – that means no having to go to the hospital! The surgery is outpatient, so you go home the same day. And you can have the surgery awake (Twilight Anesthesia – where you are awake but out of it and everything is numb). Much less invasive than a full tummy-tuck

Most people need about 3 – 5 days before returning to a light duty job. And it’ll probably be about a month before you feel a 100%.

The best part is that the scar is about half the size of a Tummy-tuck scar. It is easily hidden and usually lower than a C-section scar. So you can wear that Bikini confidently!

The most important part is determining if you are a good candidate for a mini-tummy-tuck. If you don’t have much loose skin then liposuction may be all that you need and if you have a medium to significant about of loose skin, then you might need a full tummy-tuck.

During the consultation with one of our top plastic surgeons, we will examine you and discuss in detail all of your options.
