Thinking about a Mini TT
I don't think a mini TT would give you the best outcome. You appear as if a full TT is prudent. Make sure you seek a board certified plastic surgeon in your area when you're ready to get an educated opinion on your options. Best of Luck!
Thinking about a mini tummy tuck?
Please make sure that you have chosen the right operation (an operation that will achieve an outcome that you will be pleased with); is not unusual for patients to undergo mini tummy tuck surgery only to be disappointed… Be careful with your decision-making. Best wishes.
Thank you for the pictures and questions. Based on the pictures you submitted it looks as if you would benefit from a full tummy tuck. I suggest consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. Best of Luck!

Only a full tummy tuck will help your six pack - Thinking about a mini tummy tuck? (Photos)
From only looking at your photos and not performing a physical exam, I believe you would get the best results from a full tummy tuck, not a mini tuck. You mentioned having trouble getting your six pack back, a mini tummy tuck will not address this. Your abdominal muscles need to be brought back together. They separate during pregnancy. No matter how many crunches you do, the connective tissue cannot bring them back to where they were, because it has been stretched.A full tummy tuck will address your six pack, flatten out the tummy and get the best result. Always see a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.Good luck!
Mini tummy tuck vs Full tummy tuck
From your photos it appears you have fullness both above and below your BB. This would make you a good candidate for a full lipo-abdominoplasty, not a mini TT with lipo. If you were to have a mini with only lipo above the BB you would likely have a limited result (less downtime post-op is the upside), but a limited result. good luck. Find a properly trained plastic surgeon and they can discuss this with you further during an in-office consultation.
