Less involved: A mini-tummy tuck usually involves a shorter incision in the lower abdominal fold and tightening of only the tummy muscles below the belly button. A more complete tummy tuck will include tightening of the muscles above the belly button. The decision between one or the other is made based upon the amount of looseness present on the tummy area.
