limited incision vs. full tummy tuck

Hi - I've had two consultations so far. I have a ventral/umbilical hernia and need a tummy tuck with muscle repair. One doc says I have enough loose skin for a full tuck, but that my incision may be too high for me to wear a bikini. The other doc says he can do a tummy tuck with muscle repair but with a limited incision (extended C-section scar, basically) lower down so that I can wear a bikini. He said that my stomach could be 10-15% less flat than it would be with a full tuck, but that he thought I'd be happier with the lower scar. Any opinions/advice? I'm torn...
