Mr Ioannis Goutos offers a mini tummy tuck in London (also known as a ‘partial abdominoplasty’) which is an operation similar to a full tummy tuck, but is less invasive targeting a smaller area of the lower abdomen.

It is one of many operations used in body contouring procedure to remove excess fat and skin and result in a tighter and smoother appearance of the lower abdomen. It is usually done after weight loss or following pregnancy.

A mini tummy tuck surgery can often be done without the need to stay in hospital overnight. Most people will have their surgery as an outpatient, meaning that they will be able to go home the same day. This operation is usually performed under sedation or a general anaesthetic, so you would need to have someone to be able to take you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours. In some instances, a prolonged period of observation is needed, in which case you would be staying in hospital overnight.

Mr Ioannis Goutos is particularly experienced in many body contouring procedures, in addition to managing troublesome scars and burn injuries. His expert surgical skill produces excellent post-operative outcomes. My Goutos is also very invested in the pre- and post-operative care of his patients. During your initial consult, he will be able to discuss your current situation and medical background, along with your aesthetic goals to be able to determine which procedure would be most suitable for you and your aims.

Mini Tummy Tuck Treatment London

If you are interested in having a mini tummy tuck operation, or want to find out more information about a mini tummy tuck, the first step is to book an initial consultation. This is essential to outline your cosmetic goals and assess your suitability to have a body contouring procedure. You will then undergo a thorough pre-operative assessment and planning before booking your surgery.

A mini tummy tuck surgery is usually done under sedation or a general anaesthetic. You will be asleep and unaware of the operation throughout, and will be monitored by a highly qualified anaesthetist for the duration of the procedure.

The incision lines are carefully drawn prior to the operation, so that you can also get an idea of the resultant scar. It usually looks similar to that of a caesarian section scar. Once you are asleep, an incision is made across the pre-marked area and excess skin and fat can then be removed. The wound is then closed using suitable sutures, which are usually absorbable. You will need observation for at least a few hours after the surgery and sedation/general anaesthetic, after which you should be able to go home. It is important to rest for the first 2 weeks following a mini tummy tuck surgery and avoid any strenuous activity for 6-8 weeks, whilst also wearing a suitable support garment to facilitate healing.

Mini Tummy Tuck London FAQs

We know having medical, surgical or cosmetic treatment can seem daunting and it is natural to have questions. We are here to ensure your comfort and safety at all times. If you are unable to find the answer to your questions below, then please do not hesitate to contact us so we can help.

As a mini tummy tuck is a surgical procedure, there are risks of infection, bleeding, delayed healing and blood clots, as well as a scar from the surgical incision. Steps are taken throughout the pre-operative assessment, the operation itself and the post-operative recovery to minimize these risks as much as possible. All surgical risks will be discussed during your initial and assessment consultations and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you might have.

A full tummy tuck is a more extensive operation that involves the removal of more skin and fat tissue, which means that the belly button must also be re-positioned. A mini tummy tuck targets the area of abdomen between the belly button and groin, so is a smaller procedure and does not involve repositioning and scarring around the belly button.  You can discuss whether a full or mini tummy tuck would be best for you based on the current shape of your abdomen and your desired outcomes.

It is important to rest for the first 2 weeks following this kind of surgery, and to then avoid any strenuous or vigorous activity for a further 6-8 weeks. Similarly to a full tummy tuck, wearing an appropriate support garment can help with compression which reduces swelling and promotes healing of the surgical wound. It is also crucial to attend any follow up appointments you have to ensure good healing and cosmetic results.

Liposuction can be done alongside a full or mini tummy tuck to achieve the desired overall effect. It is best to discuss this during your initial consultation as it will depend on what results you are looking for, as well as your suitability for surgery.
