I frequently get asked the question of what is the difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck? Many women come in presenting with excess in both the upper and the lower abdomen. However Abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck can treat the entire abdomen, a mini tummy tuck treats only the parts lower than the belly button. So most women who have had a pregnancy or weight gain and weight loss really aren’t good candidates for a mini tummy tuck and we do the full tummy tuck which involves tightening the muscles from the breast bone all the way down to the pubic region as well as removal of all of the excess skin between the belly button and the bikini line. A mini tummy tuck however focuses mostly on the part below the belly button. The muscles get tightened below and a shorter amount of skin gets removed but also the scar is also shorter.
