As they grow older, millions of men and women experience laxity of skin (baggy skin) with the accumulation of fat around the abdomen. This baggy skin appearance also occurs after significant weight loss, especially after pregnancy. Some people find that no amount of exercise can help to achieve the tone or tightness that they once had or that they wish to gain.
To these men and women, it can be extremely disheartening to not see the results they’re hoping for. The remedy for this situation may not warrant a full liposculpture procedure, or even the full, traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure. The solution may be a more simple Brazilian mini-tuck, one of Dr. Kaplan’s most popular procedures today. The mini tummy tuck offers many of the benefits of a full tummy tuck without some of the risks or lengthened recovery time involved.
Brazilian Tuck vs. Full Tummy Tuck
Dr. Kaplan’s “Brazilian Tummy Tuck” (mini-tuck) is a newer approach using one of the most exciting advances in abdominal surgery. In his simplified procedure, Dr. Kaplan has modified the cannula, which is the surgical instrument designed for removing excess fat. The newer, modified cannula then becomes a more effective sculpting tool. This option is less expensive and – for those who are good candidates for the procedure – offers a shorter recovery time compared to traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
Faster Recovery Time
Additionally, a Brazilian tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck is also significantly less invasive than a traditional tummy tuck while still offering similar and effective results for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their midsections. The mini-tuck does not require as much cutting, and therefore does not require as many stitches as a traditional tummy tuck. As a result, the patient experiences less down time and has the benefit of a faster recovery than those who undergo full abdominoplasty.
