Mini -Tummy Tuck vs Full Tummy Tuck
Hi.Thank you for your question.Mini surgery - mini results. Looking at your picture, I would recommend a full tummy tuck in order for you to have a complete flat tummy. If you just do a mini tummy tuck, it is not possible to fix the flaxity of your upper stomach area. If you want a full tummy tuck later on, it´s going to be very difficult for the surgeon to give you pleasing results. I would recommend to consult with your plastic surgeon.Best RegardsDr Marco Carmona MD

#MiniTummyTuck #TummyTuck - benefit from a mini tummy tuck?
If you're fine with the way your abdomen looks from about the belly button up, and don't care if the muscles are tightened, then removing some of the excess on your lower abdomen could make you happy. However, the incision is about the same length (for the two procedures) and much more can be done with the full. Furthermore, after 4 pregnancies you are (in general) more likely to "need" a full than a mini.
But it all comes down to what you hope to achieve with the procedure(s). The mini or moderate is a much less extensive procedure and has fewer side effects and risks than does the full - but it also accomplished much less. Figuring out what's right for you is something you'll need to do in consultation with one or more board-certified plastic surgeons who can examine you in person.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
