Mini vs Full Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck targets a smaller area of your abdomen and therefore involves a much smaller incision and scar. Mini tummy tucks address issues only in your lower abdominal area. Dr. Rai will tighten lower abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and tissue from the area below your navel.
In comparison, a full tummy tuck treats your entire abdominal area, both above and below your belly button. Full tummy tucks provide the most dramatic results and are more effective at eliminating stretch marks.
Mini tummy tucks are generally used for patients who have a minimal to moderate amount of loose skin and fatty tissue to be removed. Full tummy tucks are recommended for patients who have a substantial amount of fatty tissue and skin that needs to be removed.
*Individual results may vary
