mini or full tummy tuck? How do you decide?
Byon 29 May 2012
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.
