Liposuction and mini-tuck
Thank you for asking about your liposuction and mini-tummy tuck.
- It would be a perfectly reasonable procedure to have if it is what you need to have done.
- However without photos (front, 3/4 and side), one can't say if it is the right procedure.
- It is certainly unusual to need a skin-only mini-tuck but it may be what you need.
- You will need 10 days recovery, on average but what does your surgeon say?
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

You probably need a week to ten days to recover. I have my patients avoid aerobic exercise for 3-4 weeks. Best to check with your surgeon.
