How long is the recovery for a mini tuck and was it really painful?You may only need a mini tuck. That is what I had and it is much less invasive than a full tuck. No drains and they don't relocate your belly button! You still have a hip to hip scar, tho.
were you happy with the results and is it long lasting?Depending on how much loose skin you have, you might look into RF skin tightening. I know it's available for the body. I've had it done on my face and it's been good.

You are up and moving around pretty quickly....I'd say 2-3 days. Back to work in about a week if you have a desk job. Not really painful at all as long as you are careful about getting up. You can't use your stomach muscles and have to sleep on your back. They tell you how to get up kind of sideways to avoid pain. You should just go for a consultation And ask all these questions. I had mine about 10 years ago so things may have changed.
I'm part way through a course of treatments, so don't know how long the results will last, but I noticed an improvement in skin firmness from the first treatment. It's subtle, but it's definitely had an effect on my neck and jowl area. I'd done a course of CACI not long before and didn't see any permanent improvement from that.
Prettyvogue - I had a full tummy tuck 10 months ago.. no amount of mini TT or skin treatments would have fixed my sagging stomach... I just posted an updated Before/After photo to my thread if you want to take a peek. Not sure how severe your issues are but I found comparing others situations to mine helped immensely.
Best of luck.
