A mini tummy tuck is basically a smaller incision, very similar to that of a c-section.

A mini tummy tuck really is for a patient that just has excess skin, and a little bit of excess fat in the lower abdomen, essentially right above their c-section scar or between the belly button and the pubic area.

A full tummy tuck is really for the patient that has much more excess skin, more stretch marks, and a significant stretching out of the muscles that we commonly see in women that have had multiple pregnancies.

Which procedure will be better for you will really depend on your anatomy, and what we find during your consultation.
