A tummy tuck can remove a great deal of excess skin, fat, and loose muscle tissue. A partial abdominoplasty, a more technical name for the mini tummy tuck, is a less invasive version of the full abdominoplasty for those needing less change to the abdominal area.

With the partial abdominoplasty, the likelihood that the patient’s belly button will need to be moved will be much less than with a full abdominoplasty. Typically, a partial abdominoplasty procedure will not affect the belly button, instead focusing on the lower abdominal area.

Visit the office of Dr. Stephen Herring, a board-certified plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience, to find out more about the partial abdominoplasty. Set up an informative appointment by contacting our office.
