There aren't many women who are a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck! Most women after kids can really benefit from muscle tightening from the ribs to the pubic bone. This 40 year old noticed some fullness of her tummy following childbirth that would not improve in the gym. It was mainly from the belly button down and she really did like wearing a bikini. So we did liposuction of her abdomen and hips and a mini-tummy tuck, just tightening skin and the muscle from her belly button down. Three months later, she is bikini ready!

This is a very active 40 year old mother of 2 that would wear a bikini "under protest" but wanted a flatter, tighter tummy. Additionally, she wanted just a bit more fullness in the upper part of her breast to correct the "ski jump" look. I place a 270 cc saline implant (patient request) filled to 300cc above the muscle to fill out the top, lipo of the tummy and a full abdominoplasty. She stayed active after surgery with amazing results. It is a totally different body!
This 50 year old woman experienced some midsection weight gain, especially since needing thyroid medication. Initially she was just interested in her tummy, but I felt she could also benefit by a little liposuction of her hips and she agreed. I did a Brazilian tummy tuck and removed a total of 2600cc from her hips and tummy. I saw her today in the office (now 4 months) and she put a dress on yesterday that she hasn't worn since her 20's!!
This 37 year old mother of two is an example of a stretched out abdominal wall, without stretched out hanging skin, and in her case, no amount of diet and exercise will move her muscles back together. So because she needed more muscle tightening, I did a "maxi-mini" tummy tuck, disconnecting her belly button from underneath, rather than cutting around it and then doing a full muscle tightening from ribs to pubic bone, then suturing her belly button back down.
