Are you more or less happy with your figure, but annoyed about the remaining "little dog" on the lower abdomen? After pregnancy or weight loss or sometimes just as a result of genetic predisposition, many women and men have concentrated excess, sagging skin and fat in their lower abdomen. With the mini-abdominoplasty Dr. med. med. univ. Akhundov in our Berlin practice provide an excellent solution for these patients to achieve a flatter, firmer lower abdomen.
The mini tummy tuck may produce results similar to abdominal plastic, but the procedure is less extensive. Patients with less pronounced abdominal fat are often recommended. Many patients choose a mini tummy tuck after pregnancy to eliminate sagging skin or a protruding lower abdomen as a result of weight fluctuation.
Intraabdominal fat or a pregnant uterus press against the abdomen from the inside. This can cause enlargement of the muscles in the middle and create a condition called diastasis. When this happens, the straight muscles (or six-pack) are unable to support the abdomen or the back. The fat outside the abdominal wall can consume the absorbed energy, eventually leading to an excess amount of conductive tissue.
A mini tummy tuck is performed less frequently than the traditional tummy tuck. Mini abdominal plastic surgery may be recommended if there is only a moderate amount of excess skin and fat below the belly button. If the skin and fat are noticeably drooping and the skinfold reaches the hips, a full tummy tuck should be considered. For a detailed individual consultation, you can always get an initial consultation appointment with Dr. med. med. univ. Akhundov in Berlin.
