What is the difference between a mini-tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck?

0

The basic difference between a mini-tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck is that the belly button is not repositioned during the course of a mini-tummy tuck and the muscles are usually not tightened. In a mini-tummy tuck the improvement is generally restricted to the lower part of the abdomen between belly button to the pubic bone. The incisions for a mini tummy tuck are shorter and a limited amount of skin is removed. In a full tummy tuck the tightening goes up through the rib cage margin and allows the surgeon to tightnen the muscle layer from the rib margin down to the bone of the pelvis. When this operation is perfomred it requires that the belly button be brought out through a new incision after the skin is pulled down.

A mini tummy tuck is generally not as extensive and both the surgery and the recovery period are typically shorter than a full tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck can be done if the stubborn areas are located in the lower abdomen wall only. The procedure is performed between the areas from the naval to the pubic bone, the most frequent site of elasticity loss. An ideal candidate for the procedure will have issues that are not severe enough for a full abdominoplasty. Mini tummy tucks are especially effective in correcting problems resulting from pregnancy. A Board-Certified doctor will be able to give you more information and also determine if you are a candidate for the mini tummy tuck.
