While diet and exercise can go a long way, stubborn fat in the midsection is often unaffected by these protocols. Dr. Christian Arroyo performs mini tummy tuck procedures for patients in the greater Houston area.
What does the procedure entail?
Dr. Arroyo begins the process by making a horizontal incision below the navel, through which he will extract excess skin. This incision also serves as an entryway for Dr. Arroy to reach the abdominal muscles and tighten them, achieving the desired contours. The incisions are then closed with sutures. Patients should be aware that belly button repositioning is not a part of this procedure. Once the procedure is finished, bandages are applied to the treatment area and the patient is watched for a period of time before being discharged.
