Mini tummy tucks in Michigan are becoming more popular

As summer approaches, many women are considering addressing the changes to their body that have occurred after pregnancy.  Many plastic surgeons in Michigan call these, “Mommy Makeovers”, which is fairly descriptive for some women, but not for many in our practice.  We see patients daily that have been very diligent with diet and exercise and in many instances are within 10-20% of their pre-pregnancy weight.  A traditional mommy makeover involves combining a full tummy tuck with some sort of breast surgery.  Typically, the breast surgery may involve a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast augmentation with lift for our cosmetic surgery patients in Michigan.  This combination can either be too much surgery, scarring, or recovery for many of our patients seeking plastic surgery in Ann Arbor.

Dr. Malhotra, an Ann Arbor cosmetic surgeon, performs what he calls a “Mini-Mommy Makeover”.  This typically involves a mini tummy tuck, liposuction of the upper and central abdomen, and breast augmentation.  This allows for a very low placement of the mini tummy tuck scar as well as contouring of the small “pooch” of skin below the belly button.  The addition of breast augmentation allows for restoration of pre-pregnancy contours.

This procedure can have transforming results for the right patient with less downtime and surgery.
