Mini-tummy tuck issue

The mini tummy tuck does not treat the skin above the umbilicus well even with a float.  Usually the muscles above the umbilicus are not treated weather. The main issue for you is the difficulty to insure that the umbilicus would survive  with  a full tummy tuck since it was detached from its main blood supply..

Redo tummy tuck

It is difficult to evaluate your concerns based upon these photos.  You need to be examined by PS. Tummy tucks can be redone, you may benefit from muscle tightening or more skin excision , but only and in person exam will guide you.
