The limited incision mini-abdominoplasty leaves a much shorter scar. The ellipse of skin removed can be seen in the before surgery markings below. Notice the limited bruising with the tumescent technique.

The blue markings are the plan for the fat sculpture of this patient's stomach. Her fat before surgery was uneven resulting in this contour drawing.
