I know I want some form of tummy tuck and breast enhancement but I’m not sure if I need a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck. How would I know? I’m a 26 year old mother of three. I’m 5ft. and 115lbs.

A: min-tummy tuck vs full tummy tuck

A mini-TT addresses primarily the lower abdomen, where a full TT address both the upper and lower abdomen; allowing for full tightening of the abdominal muscles. It is quite rare to see a patient who is a true candidate for a mini-TT because most patients will have enough laxity or looseness of their abdominal skin to qualify for a full TT. The difference in the length of the final incision isn’t much shorter with a mini-TT. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will easily help to guide you as to the best procedure for you.

Best wishes,
