I am not often impressed by the results of mini-tummy tuck surgery. There are rarely good candidates for this operation. Many women feel nonplussed by the outcome of minis. Get a few alternate evaluations to see if other surgeons offer this as opposed to a full tummy tuck before you have surgery. Redos can be hard after tummy tuck surgery unless they are extensions of the original operation.
