Mini Abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat in the lower abdominal area (below the belly button) and the lower abdominal muscles are tightened. The skin is stretched over a smaller incision made just above the pubic hairline and excess skin is cut away. The belly button is not repositioned and so no scar is present around the belly button. The belly button may be stretched into a more youthful vertical oval shape. Compare the diagrams and photos in this album to the regular tummy tuck photo album.
