The Difference Between a Full and Mini Tummy Tuck
If you’re interested in getting a tummy tuck, there are two different procedures available. There is the well-known full tummy tuck, and then the lesser known mini tummy tuck. To make your tummy tuck recovery go smoothly, read on in today’s blog to learn the differences and see which one may work for you.
Full Tummy Tuck
A full tummy tuck involves the removal of fat and excess skin from the pubic bone to the navel. It also includes tightening of the abdominal muscles above and below the belly button to achieve a flat and firmer stomach. Achieving these results is quite simple. Using a low-lying incision, it can be concealed by the majority of underwear and bathing suit varieties. The size of the incision will depend on the patient’s needs.
Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck may not be what you think it is. While many people assume the term “mini” means just a smaller incision, the actual definition refers to removing skin in the lower abdomen without making an incision around the belly button or tightening the muscles above the belly button. Very few patients are good candidates for this procedure. If an unqualified individual receives a mini tummy tuck, unsatisfactory tummy tuck recovery outcomes may appear including upper abdomen bulging and an old looking navel.
