The Teeny Tummy Tuck Developed By The Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery

Tampa, FL - The "Teeny Tummy Tuck" is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done through a woman's existing C-Section scar, according to plastic surgeon Dr. Rigo Mendoza. He says that for the right patients, he can tighten the abdominal area quickly and with much less downtime than a conventional procedure. Dr. Mendoza performs the procedure in Tampa and Orlando.

Dr. Mendoza says the Teeny Tummy Tuck leaves the patient with no bigger of a scar than she had to begin with. For those women who have not had C-Sections, Dr. Mendoza says that the resulting scar will be similar to that of a C-section, which is usually located low and in an existing skin fold to reduce its visibility. Recovery is faster than with a conventional tummy tuck, and the woman can wear a bikini without worrying about displaying a large scar.
