Absolutely not. Every patient is different and there is more than one type of abdominoplasty. Mini tummy tucks involve removing less skin and tightening only the lower abdominal wall or muscles. Full tummy tucks usually involve larger incisions that entail removing more skin and tightening the abdominal wall from the pubic bone all the way up to the lower chest. The best type of operation for an individual patient is largely based on the anatomy of the abdominal wall and the patient’s desires.
