Do you have some excess skin below your belly button, or stubborn lower abdominal fat that isn’t responding to exercise? Do you have an unsightly skin fold following a C-section? For many women and men who are in excellent physical shape but have excess fat and skin just above the pubic area, a mini tummy tuck performed by Dr. Zeuke might be the right solution for you.
In contrast to a traditional tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, a mini tummy tuck only addresses the excess fat and skin just above the pubic area, and involves a smaller scar and faster recovery. This excess fat and skin is most common in women after pregnancy and C-sections, and exercise alone won’t eliminate the problem.
A traditional tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) addresses the muscles above and below the belly button, along with excessive or loose skin, But for patients who have a tight abdominal wall that doesn’t protrude significantly, and haven’t lost a significant amount of weight with resulting excessive sagging skin, a mini tummy tuck might be a better procedure.
There are many difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck. The main difference is that with a mini tummy tuck the area at and above the navel is not treated, so there is no scar or repositioning of the navel.
There are many benefits that are associated with a mini tummy tuck. First, it is much less invasive than a traditional abdominoplasty, which means a much shorter recovery period for the patient. Other benefits include:
For those patients who don’t require any additional contour sculpting above the belly button, and do not have a significantly protruding abdominal muscle wall, the mini tummy tuck is the procedure of choice.
The best candidates for a mini tummy tuck are patients with skin and excessive fatty tissue that is limited to the area below the belly button.Women who have a little pouch above their C-section scars are the ideal candidates. Patients may have a slim abdomen, but want it sculpted into a more attractive look. The patient should also have good muscle tone to the abdominal muscles and be in good health.
In addition, patients should have:
You should also be in good health, as this is key for proper healing and recovery after your procedure.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for the mini tummy tuck surgery versus full abdominoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zeuke. He will determine the best procedure for your specific situation.
Choosing a cosmetic surgery procedure is always an important decision that should never be rushed. That is why Dr. Zeuke always takes the time to get to know his patients and their reasons for wanting a Mini Tummy Tuck during a consultation. During this meeting, you will have a general health check and discuss all the implications and outcomes of Mini Tummy Tuck surgery to ensure that you are fully informed and prepared to enter the operating theatre. This is also a time when you can ask any questions that you might have about Mini Tummy Tuck surgery in a private, but friendly clinic environment.
Many patients opt to have liposuction done at the same time as a mini tummy tuck, to address specific areas on their bodies. These may include love handles, fat pockets above the belly button and other areas. Liposuction is usually performed in conjunction with a mini tummy tuck to help contour the waist area and de-fat the upper and lower abdomen, flanks and pubic area, helping to provide the best shape to the tummy.
Liposuction involves placing several small incisions, followed by fat extraction using a cannula. The procedure causes some bruising and swelling, along with mild discomfort at the incision sites. When done with a mini tummy tuck, it is done immediately after the mini tummy tuck procedure to contour the problem areas in one operation.
Dr. Zeuke can discuss this procedure with you at the time of your consultation, and determine the best approach based on your goals and his physical examination.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
