A Mini Tummy Tuck, as its name implies, is essentially a modified version of a full Tummy Tuck. While a full Tummy Tuck reconstructs the entire abdominal area, this mini treatment focuses exclusively on the lower portion of the abdomen below the navel, which is an area that can be difficult to tone up with exercise. A Mini Tummy Tuck is a very popular procedure in Dallas, Texas, and it is one of the most common procedures performed by Dr. Joshua Cox.
Dr. Cox and his staff are truly one of a kind. The moment I walked in for my first consultation appointment, I knew I found the one who I trusted for my surgery. He spent nearly two hours discussing options that would be best for me. My case was challenging due to prior surgeries, but he took that into consideration. He truly cares about his patients and it shows. He has a vision and a true talent for what he does. My body is EXACTLY how I wanted it. I highly recommend him and his team.

Dr. Cox was amazing! I had my breast reduction done by Him, and from the consultation, to the day of my surgery, to post op everything was great. His staff is also very kind and easy to work with. It’s only been one week since my surgery and I’m loving the results!

Dr. Cox and his entire team are beyond AMAZING! If you want to feel like more than just a patient, then this is the dream team for you! After having my tummy tuck with Dr. Cox in August, I had an issue with retaining fluid. Dr. Cox and Leannza took me under their wings and did everything to resolve the issue! That meant so much to me, THANK YOU! I LOVE THE ENTIRE TEAM! I will forever be a member of the Cox Cosmetic family!

Dr. Cox is an amazing Dr.! His staff is just as amazing too! I was so nervous about getting Lipo 360 and a breast tuck because I had some bad experiences in the past. He has completely changed my outlook! My body went from a 4/5 to a 10!! I cannot be happier with my results. Him and his staff answer questions quickly. I never had to wait more than an hour for a return call/text and that was b/c it was a surgery day! They treat you like family. If you don’t choose him you’re really missing out. He is a body magician!

A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, can help restore abdominal contours after childbirth or weight loss/weight gain. This procedure removes excess abdominal tissue of the lower abdomen, tightens abdominal muscles and is often performed with liposuction of the abdomen and love handles to help achieve an hourglass figure. A Tummy Tuck is a very popular procedure in Dallas, Texas, and it is one of the most common procedures performed by Dr. Joshua Cox.Get A Consult
The Mini Tummy Tuck surgery is the basically the same procedure as a full tummy tuck, just performed on a patient with less fat and skin to remove. (“Mini” refers to the amount of fat and skin removed.) It is performed with a shorter incision and removes excess fat and excess skin of the lower abdomen to flatten and smooth your abdominal wall.
The Mini Tummy Tuck procedure is ideal if your loose skin and pooching is confined to the area of the abdomen below your belly button. Mini tucks are usually faster, less aggressive treatments that involve a shorter recovery period and quicker return to exercise and daily activities.
Dr. Cox takes pride in his Mini Tummy Tuck techniques which focus specifically on the removal of excess skin and fat confined to the abdomen that is below the belly button. By removing this excess sagging skin and fat, it’s possible to improve the visual contour and restore the skin to a much younger, smoother, natural looking state. Scarring is similar to a full Tummy Tuck in terms of the location but is typically much shorter in length.
Dr. Cox hears similar stories from many of his patients who have had children or weight fluctuations that have left them with excess abdominal skin and fat that will not go away as much as they diet and exercise. They are embarrassed to wear bathing suits, fitted dresses, or clothing. The excess abdominal skin and fat have taken a toll on their self-confidence and energy level. A Tummy Tuck can help you feel like yourself before children or weight gain and help get you back the confidence and waistline you once had. A Tummy Tuck can also remove many of those unwanted stretch marks in your lower abdomen.Get A Consult
Mini Tummy Tuck is commonly performed in patients whose excess skin and fat are limited to just the lower abdomen, especially if their upper abdominal appearance is already in reasonably good shape. The Mini Tummy Tuck procedure can be performed along with breast lift (with or without augmentation), breast augmentation, liposuction, and many other cosmetic procedures.View All Procedures
On the day of your Mini Tummy Tuck procedure, Dr. Cox will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last-minute questions or concerns you may have. With attention to detail being of utmost concern, Dr. Cox may make some preoperative markings of the area and will perform extensive checks to ensure high-quality care and safety. You will meet the anesthesiologist and their team, as well as the members of our plastic surgery operative team.
During your procedure, Dr. Cox pays meticulous attention to detail to ensure a great result with a focus on safety and quality. Your family will be updated on your status periodically and will be able to talk with Dr. Cox one-on-one after the procedure is completed. Mini Tummy Tuck procedures typically take less than one hour.
After your Mini Tummy Tuck, you will have a light dressing covering the incisions with a lower body compression garment. Drain placement is typical after a Mini Tummy Tuck. You will be seen in clinic for follow up on postop day two for drain teaching. You may shower as soon as 48 hours after the procedure once cleared to do so at your follow up appointment.
Dr. Cox employs a multimodal pain regimen to decrease your need for narcotic pain medication, which allows our patients to recover quickly and feel more like themselves soon after surgery.
Our Mini Tummy Tuck patients can expect to return back to work after one or two weeks. Most of the swelling begins to subside over the first few weeks, but swelling may persist for a few months after the procedure. We advise that you refrain from strenuous activity or heavy lifting greater than 10 pounds for six to eight weeks during the healing process.
The cost of Mini Tummy Tuck typically ranges from $3,000 to $4,000.
*Costs include facility fees, anesthesia fees, surgeon fees, specialized plastic surgery garments, and other required supplies such as the Keller funnel, abdominal boards, binders (if needed), and all postoperative visits.
