The Mini-Scar Tummy Tuck
Posted on: May 10, 2019 in Mini-Scar Tummy Tuck
When dreaming about a flat, toned tummy, a long tummy tuck scar is the furthest thing from the mind. If you are interested in tummy tuck surgery but haven’t taken the plunge because you are concerned about scarring, Dr. Halpern’s mini-scar tummy tuck could be perfect for you.
He was one of the pioneers of the mini-scar endoscopic tummy tuck. The mini-scar tummy tuck can tighten the abdominal muscles and get rid of excess belly fat with smaller, inconspicuous scars.
Scarring With the Mini-Scar Tummy Tuck
With the mini-scar tummy tuck, scarring is significantly reduced. First, Dr. Halpern performs ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL) to remove excess abdominal fat through tiny incisions.
He makes minor incisions just wide enough to allow the ultrasonic wand and cannula to pass through the skin. This step gets rid of a belly pooch and gives you a flatter abdomen. Next, Dr. Halpern tightens the stomach muscles through a relatively small incision that is hidden in the pubic hair, using the Halpern Endoscopic Retractor which he invented.
This “mini scar” can reveal a firmer, more toned, and more defined abdominal contour without lengthy or multiple incisions.
He can further tighten skin using a new high-tech device called J-Plasma® by Renuvion™. This uses radiofrequency technology to tighten skin.
A Flat, Toned Abdomen Without Major Scars
When exercise and diet have failed you, a mini-scar tummy tuck can help you achieve a firmer and flatter stomach without the downsides of unsightly scars. After your procedure, you can enjoy your new look while wearing any clothing you desire.
Many patients are extremely satisfied with their results and feel more confident about their appearance after a mini-scar tummy tuck.
Candidates for a mini-scar tummy tuck have good skin tone (not too loose or too thin) but struggle with weakened abdominal muscles and excess tummy fat.
