Mini-tuck: Mini-results: A mini-tummy tuck is occasionally a helpful procedure, but most patients would benefit much more from a full tummy tuck. A mini tuck only tightens skin and muscle below the belly button, not above, and cannot tighten even the lower abdomen as much as a full tummy tuck. It's useful for thin patients who may have some lower abdomen muscle bulging with good skin, or with a slight lower tummy "pooch" or skin overhang. A board certified plastic surgeon can best advise you after performing an examination. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

What is the difference between a tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck? I don't know if i need a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck. What are the differences?
Although : Although the two procedures have a similar name, they differ in the amount of skin removed, the amount of muscle work performed, and the final incisional scar. The mini tummy tuck treats the minor pouching out of the lower belly caused by stretching of the lower abdominal muscles. It is primarily a muscle tightening procedure. The tummy tuck treats two conditions: a muscle separation above and below the belly button; and excessive or loose skin in the belly. It is really two operations, a muscle repair and a skin excision. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

If an umbilical hernia has reached a size where this is a real risk, or if the pain from the hernia is interfering with one's daily activities, surgery should be strongly considered. Best bet: see a surgeon for their opinion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you tell me if a super morbidly obese person lost the weight, would they still have complications?
Super obese: It depends on so many things. How heavy they were, how much weight they lose, what medical problems they had, how severe they were, etc. However, no matter how you look at it, the super obese individual that loses a significant amount of weight will be much healthier and have a lower risk of death than if they stayed super obese. ...Read more
