My daughter who is in her 20's lost about 50 lbs about 4 years ago and has stayed extremely active, exercising daily. The only problem area is her lower abdominal skin which she cannot tighten with exercise. This does not affect the muscle tone below and is just skin laxity. We are trying to get a ball park estimate of what this will cost.

Mini tummy tuck for weight loss patient
Thanks for your question. Most people who lose large amounts of weight in general need a full tummy tuck. We can see you for a free consultation and advise of exact procedure and cost.
As a rule, the quoted averages on RealSelf are reasonable estimates, though prices will vary from place to place. A review of local webistes of surgeons may help, as will calls to their offices.
Note, however, that most patients asking about mini-TT wind up needing a full TT. The mini will only address the tissue excess below the navel, and it is rather unusual for the problem to be limited to the lower abdomen.
RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified, but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.
Thank your for your question, best wishes.
