I’ve had a ton of questions surrounding the difference between a tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck, so I’ll share.

A full tummy tuck is done when the patient has significant loose skin or excess fat. The full is done above the belly button which means I go in and recreate the belly button. This allows me to remove more skin and give a better result. The mini tummy tuck is below the belly button so you keep the belly button that you started with. It also has an incision that can be hidden under the bikini line, whereas the full is a longer incision. The mini tummy tuck is only done when the patient has very little loose skin to remove.

A mini tummy tuck is done rarely. Most patients need a full tummy tuck to get the desired result.

I’ve included two before and afters that show patients that had either a mini tummy tuck or full so that you can see the difference in starting points. Keep in mind that patients often add Lipo contouring to a tummy tuck to give the abdomen greater contour. Patient in the mini tummy tuck photo had diastasis recti that was repaired as well, hence the much flatter tummy in the after photos.

Do you have any questions about this?
