The mini-tuck procedure is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed by Dr. Ashruf.

  • Do you have a small amount of loose skin in the center of your lower abdomen?
  • Are you at your ideal weight?
  • Are you satisfied with the appearance of your waist and hips and have a small problem area in the lower abdomen and upper groin area?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then you may be an ideal candidate for the Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure.

What is a Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck allows patients to target the small problem area below the belly button, smoothing it out and tightening it. It does not address the entire abdomen – this would require a full tummy tuck.

With a mini tummy tuck, the navel is not repositioned. Removing the excess fat and loose stretched out skin in the lower abdominal area often times is all that is required to improve the appearance of the abdomen. In some cases, an additional skin procedure called the ROLL CIT procedure is used to allow Dr. Ashruf to tackle stretch marks using a non-invasive dermatological technique. With this subsequent treatment, the look of stretch marks on the abdomen is diminished, and with the induction of new collagen, the skin becomes tighter and firmer.

The Procedure

Dr Ashruf performs the mini tummy tuck under general anesthesia; this means you will feel no pain during the procedure. Dr. Ashruf specializes in minimally invasive techniques that alleviate discomfort and promote faster recovery time. Patients usually return to light activity within two days following the procedure, and are back to work within a week.
