Pros - much flatter/smoother tummy, very low and short scar.
Cons- my belly button was pulled lower and healing time is long (restricted activity for at least 8 wks and then lower than normal activity for at least 16 wks).
I did it because I had stretched stomach muscles, extra skin & small pocket of stubborn fat that wouldn't leave after my 2 babies (one 9.9 lbs) no matter how much eating good & exercise I did (I've worked out & ate well for 30 years!).
I'm small & thin naturally and didn't have a ton of work needed, hence the mini instead of the full. I did have slight lipo on belly & flanks with it just for contour. I've run into a problem of popped stitches. Even in that, I would still do it again because I have healed very well and very quickly and can now button my pants.
