Q: Mini Tummy Tuck vs Full Tummy Tuck?
Wave Patient: Tummy Tuck B&A
A: Sometimes A Trade-Off Is Worth The Trade
Given your history of multiple c-sections for the delivery of 11lbs babies, I do not believe that your “ab work” has “pushed your stomach out”. Rather, you have a diastsis recti that prevents your abdominal wall from effectively restraining the mass of the contents of your abdomen from pushing forward through this opening , and giving your abdomen an overall convex shape.
Secondly, the issue is not whether you are “fussed” or not about your stretch marks. The real issue is that your abdominal skin has been stretched from your pregnancies and weight gain so that it has lost a good deal of its elasticity, and is now somewhat redundant and dependent.
The result will be that you will continue to have excess hanging skin, particularly laterally, and your abdomen will continue to have an overall convex shape unrelated to, and never to be improved by, your sit up regime. You would be far better served to undergo the appropriate surgery without cutting corners, and accept the trade off of a slightly longer scar for an overall improvement in your abdominal contour and aesthetics.
