Yes you are correct! You have a rather higher set incision thus it appears as a shorter abdomen length. Best to discuss with your surgeon.//

Tummy does not get shorter after a tummy tuck

but your photos give the illusion that yours may be 'shorter'. It appears your mons was pulled up a bit and that is why it looks shorter. But your torso has not shortened at all.
