Will a mini tummy tuck work for me?
In my opinion, the mini tummy tuck is an operation that produces very limited results and is very rarely indicated. It involves a shorter incision but does not address the majority of the abdominal wall issues present for most patients who present consultation. For example, the area of skin excised is quite small. The abdominal wall musculature is addressed below the umbilicus leaving the upper number wall potentially lax. The appearance of the umbilicus is not necessarily addressed sufficiently.
For the vast majority of patients who have had pregnancies and/or weight loss a full abdominoplasty is necessary to achieve the desired results. When the time is right, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients achieve the types of outcomes you would be pleased with. You may find the attached link, dedicated to tummy tuck surgery concerns, helpful to you as you learn more. Best wishes.
Candidate for mini tummy tuck
The best way to determine your candidacy for any particular surgery, is to have an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. However, based on your pictures, it seems that you're a better candidate for a full lipo-abdominoplasty. Abdominal plication will really help corset your abdomen and give you an amazing result. Liposuction will also help slim the flanks, too. I do not believe a mini tummy tuck will give you the results who are seeking. Hope this helps...
