mini or full tummy tuck? How do you decide?

I had my first consult today (several more are scheduled) and the surgeon suggested that I do a mini tummy tuck.  She said my belly button is in a place where with the skin I have she wont be able to pull it down far enough and I would be left with a vertical scar coming out of the big horizontal one.  She said she would still go in an repair my muscle separation above the belly button, which I didnt think was done with a mini.   Of course now I am thinking what happens to the skin above my belly button?  Wont it be loose?  Will it be even looser once the muscles are tightened?  I wish I had thought to ask that in my consultation.
