Pregnancy and childbirth, or gaining and losing a good deal of weight, takes a physical toll on your midsection. One common outcome is the dreaded tummy pooch caused by the separation of abdominal muscles during pregnancy. Excess skin that hangs over the waist is another concern. Depending on your specific condition, a full or mini tummy tuck is a potential solution.

Lifestyle changes, such as exercising more or sticking to a nutritious diet, are excellent habits, but they don’t address loose skin or separated abdominal muscles (a condition called diastasis recti). For those concerns, a tummy tuck is usually the best solution.

Because a mini tummy tuck is less extensive and requires a shorter recovery period than a full tummy tuck, patients often ask if they can accomplish their goals with a mini abdominoplasty. It’s an effective procedure for the right person. Whether you get a full or mini tummy tuck, you can combine the procedure with liposuction and a breast lift with or without implants as part of a mommy makeover.

This quiz will help you understand if a mini or full tummy tuck aligns best with your goals and help you make an informed decision.
