When will I see the results of my mini tummy tuck?
The results of your mini tummy tuck can be seen immediately. Your clothes will fit better and you’ll be thrilled with your smoother, tighter midsection. Dr. Karlinsky’s mini tummy tucks have patients looking and feeling great about their bodies, and they often continue to lose weight due to the boost in self-confidence.

Since the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, preparation is simple. All you need to do is wear loose, comfortable clothing and arrange for a ride home. It is always advised to stop smoking two weeks before and after surgery to avoid any unnecessary complications.
How does Dr. Karlinsky perform a mini tummy tuck?
The beauty of this procedure is in the name—you get many of the same great benefits of a tummy tuck, in a less invasive way that requires less downtime. During your mini tummy tuck, Dr. Karlinsky will use only local anesthesia to numb your abdomen and make a much smaller incision (comparable to a C-section scar) than is needed for traditional abdominoplasty. She will remove excess skin and fat (liposuction may be needed) from your stomach area, and will leave your navel intact for the most natural recovery results.
Do mini tummy tucks require an overnight stay?
A mini tummy tuck does not require you to stay the night at a hospital. After the procedure, you’ll rest comfortably in our recovery room and then can head home with a loved one in just a few short hours.
How long will my mini tummy tuck recovery take?
Because Dr. Karlinsky uses a smaller incision and only local anesthesia, you can expect to be back on your feet quickly. You will feel some discomfort and tightness in your abdomen and should rest at home for a few days to heal. Most patients are back to work and their busy schedules in less than a week.
What risks are associated with a mini tummy tuck?
Be sure to get adequate rest and follow up with Dr. Karlinsky should you have any concerns during recovery. Though rare, risks may include infection at the incision, visible scarring, bleeding, or wound separation.
Will my mini tummy tuck results last?
Your results will last indefinitely with proper diet and exercise. Take care of your investment by maintaining a healthy weight, and you’ll enjoy your beautiful, new shape long into the future.

What other procedures can help slim my abdomen?
Dr. Karlinsky will help you determine whether you’re better suited for a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck. This will depend on the amount of abdominal fat and skin to be removed, as well as the condition of your abdominal muscles. You may also consider incorporating liposuction or Lunchtime Lipo for additional fat removal and contouring. These procedures may be combined with your mini tummy tuck.
