Mini or full?
You would best be served by a full tummy tuck. A mini would only address the loose lower skin and would leave you disappointed. A full tummy tuck will allow for maximal excision of the loose skin of the lower abdomen, tightening of the muscles and contouring of the lower trunk. Liposuction is often used to contour the flanks to establish a nice feminine silhouette.
Consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will help answer all your questions and devise a body contouring plan that is specific to your needs.

Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Mini Abdominoplasty or. Umbilical Fliat procedure are operations for women with minimal excess skin. As such they are limited to a small group of women.
Yiu apoear ear to have a moderate amount of excess skin with excess skin above the belly button with muscle separation and a small overhang. You should get a nice result with a Full Tummy Yuck with muscle tightening.
