Mini Tummy Tuck Vs Full Tummy Tuck

Mini Tummy Tuck
Full Tummy Tuck
1.       Incision and Scarring
The incision for a mini tummy tuck is made below the belly button, smaller than what is done for full tummy tuck. Also, because of the shorter incision, the scar is smaller than the one in Full Tummy Tuck.
The incision, in this case, is made below the belly button but it extends from hip to hip. This results in a larger incision and a larger scar. Moreover, the belly button is repositioned in this case due to which there occurs a risk of scarring around belly button also.
2.       Skin Tightening
The amount of skin tightening in this case starts from the level of belly button up to the pubis.
The amount of skin tightening in this case is more than that of mini tummy tuck, extending from the level of ribs above to the pubis, down.
3.       Belly button repositioning
It does not involve repositioning of belly button and does not involve any scarring around the belly button
There is a larger shift of skin during the muscle tightening process which requires the belly button to be relocated to a new position. There are also risks of scar formation surrounding the navel.
4.       Muscle Tightening
Muscle tightening in this case is limited only to a part of abs below the navel region
Muscle tightening of “abs” occurs from ribs above to the pubis below.
5.       Duration of Surgery
The duration of surgery varies from 1 – 2 hours
The duration of surgery varies from 3 – 4 hours
6.   Resumption of         daily activities
There is the sooner resumption of daily activities after a mini-tummy tuck
It takes longer to resume daily activities after a full tummy tuck. Also, strenuous exercises should be avoided for 5 – 6 weeks.
7.       The cost of surgery
The cost of mini tummy tuck procedure is lesser than full abdominoplasty as it is a less extensive procedure.
The cost of full abdominoplasty is more than a mini tummy tuck.

Despite a lot of differences between the two, mini tummy tuck shares some common features with full tummy tuck. For instance, remarkable changes are seen with both mini tummy tuck and full tummy tuck on women who have a roll of fat and skin below the navel only.
