A mini tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty involves a lesser version of the full operation so the scar is shorter, usually more resembling along cesarean section scar in terms of its length.

It's best to use when the majority of the concerns about the tummy are cited below the belly button, the umbilicus, the umbilicus acts as a limit on what can be achieved higher up and above the belly button but we can tighten the muscles lower down in the tummy with a mini tummy tuck.

More recently there have been advances to the mini operation where more improvement can be achieved via endoscopic or keyhole techniques by detaching the belly button to allow access more superiorly and then stitching the belly button back in place.
