In brief: Yes but limited

Stretch marks located on the lower half of your bebelow rom 4 inches below the umbilicus to the pubic hair line will be removed.

In brief: Yes, but only some!

Mini-anything gives mini results.
Everyone wants a short(er) scar but also want maximum stretch mark removal. These are incompatible goals, like wanting to get all the way to a location but only using half the gas! most patients who want a mini really need a regular tummy tuck, and appreciate the honesty of an accurate experienced consultation. A bad mini may not be converted to a good tummy tuck!

In brief: Mini means "LIte"

Mini tummy tuck surgery is often limited in its results.
I do far fewer of them than i did in years gone by for this reason. Patients are frequently not impressed with the results of a mini, certainly not like they are with those of the larger full tummy tuck.

In brief: Yes but not many

A mini tummy tuck does remove the stretch marks from roughly your hair line to about half way up to the belly button.
Most women who want a mini, really need a full tummy tuck. Most candidates for a mini are looking for a flatter lower abdomen after a c-section. Talk with a plastic surgeon who can go through with you the advantages of a mini vs. A full. Good luck.
