Awake Mini-Abdominoplasty (Avelar)
A mini-tuck is performed on those who have a small area of excess fat & skin in the lower abdomen. This excess skin is often a byproduct of a pregnancy, or is in those who have gained and lost lower abdominal weight. This area does not respond to diet and exercise.
Those who are looking to have this extra skin and fat removed without the traditional abdominoplasty or tummy-tuck can now be helped with our awake mini-tuck.
It’s performed under local anesthesia, takes about an hour, and patients can return to work within 2-3 days.
If you’re interested in the mini-abdominoplasty, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta if this could be a good option for you.
