Whether an adverse scar from prior C-section or lower tummy “pouch” (below the belly button) of fat and skin, a mini tummy tuck procedure can be safely performed in the office with local anesthesia (numbing solution injections) only.

This procedure involves removing skin and tightening lower abdominal muscle below the belly button, usually through a smaller incision than a full tummy tuck.

Often, a mini liposuction procedure can be performed to further sculpt the lower abdominal area.
