In Omaha, a mini tummy tuck, or partial abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure for people who have a small to moderate amount of excess skin and fat in the lower part of the abdomen. It is ideal for men and women who don’t require a full tummy tuck but are unhappy with the appearance of the area below the navel. Our highly-qualified plastic surgeons have helped many patients to have a slimmer, flatter abdomen through this procedure.

Tummy Tuck: Mini vs. Full Tummy Tuck
Understanding Mini Tummy Tuck
The mini tummy tuck in Omaha is a good option for people with laxity and bulging that does not extend above the navel. Bulging in this area is commonly caused by the accumulation of fatty tissue and weakened lower stomach muscles due to weight fluctuation or pregnancy.
In your consultation, one of our highly-qualified plastic surgeons will take the time to understand your goals, answer your questions and help you visualize realistic results using our state-of-the-art computer imaging system. We may even discover that you are an excellent candidate to have liposuction performed at the same time to shape and sculpt your abdominal profile.
Tummy Tuck: A Step-by-Step Look
Your Mini Tummy Tuck procedure
Mini tummy tuck surgery is less invasive than a full tummy tuck and is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. While a full tummy tuck involves an incision around the navel and across the lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck leaves the navel intact and requires a smaller incision. During the procedure, the abdominal wall is tightened and excess skin and fat is removed.
In the days following surgery, you may experience some discomfort, but most of our patients tell us it’s easily managed with over-the-counter pain medicine. Learn more about mini tummy tuck by reading our list of Frequently Asked Questions.

You will start enjoying a flatter, firmer abdomen once swelling has subsided – typically within 1-2 weeks.
