Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
I Would Like to Know when a Partial Abdominoplasty is Indicated and What Are the Benefits?
I am having abdominoplasty this year as I have loose skin and need a muscle repair after several pregnancies. My surgeon recommended a partial abdominoplasty for me as my loose skin is below my belly button and my upper abdomen is mostly flat and the the skin is quite taut. He said that sometimes when there is not much, or any, loose skin above the belly button, that you cannot pull the skin down low enough and end up with a higher than optimal scar. What are the pros and cons of a partial? Thx!
Will a mini tummy tuck be the appropriate procedure for correcting abdominal deformity?

Partial (Mini) abdominoplasty is very seldom a good idea.
Most times a full tummy tuck is needed rather than a mini
"mini" or full abdominoplasty
