Mini tuck&lipo
Hi i am new to this and hope to find help.
I am 30 and I had 3 children.

I am looking forward to get a mini tuck with lipo right below my navel. My lose and excess skin is right below and uaahhh:(
So any ladies here with experience ? How long is a scar on a tiny person IF pulled down right below the navel

I have a scar all around my navel and vertical thus a surgery 3 years ago.(but i want o keep it because:...

i went to my doc already and he said this: a full tt includes also a new navel, but the scar from around my navel would moved center the pantie line, and the TT scar would be nicely low-however a full tt would give me absolute flat stomach and less work after recovery.
a ''mini'' tuck he would do with lipo so he can pull as much as possible but it wouldnt be that flat.Also the TT scar couldnt be as low as i may wish..

what i want to get rid of is that lose skin.That's all and im happy

I hope to find ladies here who can tell me about their experience !

thanks so much

Im hoping my scar isnt to high either.I want a real flat tummy..which i do workout alot..just like u said this loose skin and the scar from c-section..looks not so great.Ill be happy too once loose skin is gone!

I just had a mini tt with Lipo and doc had 1 drain for the first 3 days to drain fluid. I feel like once he removed it the pain was significantly reduced. I'm 5'4 and weigh 115 and my scar is short enough to hide under my Brazilian bikini :)
