Be As Tiny as Your Yellow Polka Dot Bikini with a Tummy Tuck

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 AT 12:16 PM  by Dr. Rigo Mendoza


Maintaining a bikini body through the winter months can be quite a challenge. It’s easy to slack on your diet and exercise when problem areas are covered by coats, sweaters, and pants, but once the weather warms and layers of clothing begin to shed, problem areas, like the abdomen, are bared. Dr. Rigo Mendoza at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers a solution for those who have a little excess skin and fat in their abdomen. Although a well-maintained diet and regular exercise is needed to keep lasting, beautiful results, mini tummy tuck in Tampa is an excellent way to give yourself a tiny winy head start on your plans to gain back that summer body and no longer be regulated to a one-piece in the sunny months ahead. Consider a mini tummy tuck in Florida this winter season while the layers are still on, so when the time comes, you’ll feel comfortable taking them off!

Roger Bassin, M.D. and  Rigo Mendoza, M.D.  offer many facial, body, breast, and non-invasive procedures at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa to enhance your curves and contours and provide ageless enduring beauty. Mini tummy tuck in Tampa, Florida removes excess fat and sagging skin from the abdomen. Although mini tummy tuck in Florida does leave a permanent scar along the bikini line, the scar is shorter than a traditional tummy tuck and the belly button does not need to be moved. Ideal patients for the mini tummy tuck in Tampa are women whose abdominal walls have been weakened by pregnancy, older patients whose abdomens have weakened and skin has lost its elasticity, and patients who have had significant weight fluctuations, however, if you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, mini tummy tuck should be considered at a later date after the weight loss or pregnancy has ended.



Mini tummy tuck in Florida takes approximately one to two hours to complete. Dr. Mendoza will make an incision at the bikini line, tighten the abdominal wall, and remove any excess skin and fat. Afterward, patients can expect mild to moderate discomfort, bruising, and swelling, but patients typically return to work within 5 to 7 days. Wear a tiny winy bikini this summer thanks to the mini tummy tuck you had this winter. Feel as tiny winy as your bikini after mini tummy tuck in Tampa. Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about mini tummy tuck.
