If you are happy with your abdomen except for that little pocket of fat below your belly button, you may want to consider a mini tummy tuck, especially if you have not be able to tone the area with diet and exercise. What you may not realize is that our bodies have certain types of fat that cannot be eliminated no matter what we do. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers mini tummy tucks and other types of body contouring for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
The area below your bellybutton presents a unique challenge for toning and tightening. Few exercises target the area effectively, and you may develop a certain type of exercise-resistant fat. A mini tummy tuck will remove the extra fat as well as any skin that has lost elasticity and sags on your lower abdomen. The surgery will boost your confidence and help your clothes fit better.
Dr. Castellon recommends mini abdominoplasty for men and women who have:
Mini tummy tuck procedures are performed in a surgery center so that our patients have the highest quality care from an experienced and caring medical staff. You should arrive at the surgery center at your designated time so that we can help you prepare for the surgery. We recommend that you have a friend or family member drive you to the appointment and be available after the surgery to take you home. You will be drowsy after the surgery, so you should plan on staying home and resting.
Medical insurance considers mini tummy tuck surgery to be elective, so you are responsible for the entire cost. We are better able to provide a cost after your consultation appointment. We will also explain our payment options. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center accepts payment by cash and check as well as credit card, including MasterCard® and Visa®. If you are interested in financing the cost of your mini tummy tuck, we encourage you to apply with CareCredit® and LendingUSA.com.

Castellon Plastic Surgery Center strives to give the best mini tummy tuck Melbourne and Brevard County have to offer the men and women of Central Florida. Contact us today to schedule your personal consultation.
Mini tummy tuck surgery can take several hours to complete. We will explain the details of your abdominoplasty during your consultation.
Full results from a mini tummy tuck take less time than a full tummy tuck or extended tummy tuck, but it will still take several months before you are completely healed.
Recovery from a mini tummy tuck can take up to six weeks. Our Melbourne tummy tuck patients will be provided detailed instructions for at-home care and follow-up appointments before they leave the surgery center. Having a friend or family member with you at the surgery center ensures that you clearly understand how to take care of yourself and the limitations to your activities.
The best part of having a mini tummy tuck is that, with proper diet and exercise, the results are permanent. You may experience some changes to your lower abdomen due to the natural aging process and any changes to your weight. In many cases, these small changes can be corrected with liposuction. If you become pregnant after your mini tummy tuck, you may need a second surgery.
