Minituck vs full tummy tuck

+1

Minituck is reserved for patients who only need improvement of the lower abdomen. Although liposuction of the upper abdomen if often performed at the same time, minimal improvement of the upper abdomen occurs. Full abdominoplasty will improve both upper and lower abdomen. Not all surgeons perform liposuction of the abdomen at same time as a full abdominoplasty. The cost depends on you area, in our area the cost is lower than the average posted on Real self.

Mini Tummy Tuck

The quoted average for RealSelf looks appropriate for my general community. I would say that most patients who think they are good candidates for a mini-TT often will be advised to have a full TT. A mini-TT will only treat the lower abdomen, below the navel. Excess skin and fat can be removed, and the abdominal wall tightened.

It does nothing above the navel, and if there are issues there, fixing just the lower half will create an imbalance that can be quite unattractive. 

Best advice is to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon. RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified,  but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S.

Thank your for your question, best wishes.
