You should visit your surgeon and discuss what the original surgical plan was. Read the consent form you signed and see that it says abdominoplasty and not "mini abdominoplasty". It is difficult for me to comment further without any photos and without examining you in person.
Also, you must be certain that the surgeon indeed stopped short of the sternum. Did your surgeon tell you this? I would ask for a copy of the operative note in order to see what your surgeon dictated after the surgery.
If needed, you can always seek the opinion of another Plastic Surgeon. I hope this helps!
