Who is the Mini Abdominoplasty for? Who Requires It?
Minimally invasive abdominoplasty is for men and women who want to remove excess skin, fat, and excess skin hanging over their wound. There are two types of abdominoplasties. The traditional “open” abdominoplasty requires general anesthesia, is performed in general surgery, and takes about 2-3 hours.
