Tummy tuck with no MR


I just went to my first consultation for correction of my c section scar, loose skin and stretch marks. My surgeon checked my abdominal muscles and said they are in good condition. When I suck my stomach in it becomes flat save for the loose hanging skin. He drew lines on my stomach to show which skin would be excised during a mini TT and a full TT. I'm not happy with the minimal skin that would be cut out during a mini but I really don't think I need a full TT either. Especially now that I know I don't need any muscle repair.

I feel like there are other options for me. A modified mini? Which was not offered.

The difference between the procedures he offered were one inch of skin near the pubic area where my c section scar is, no lipo...and smaller scar for $5000 or all of the skin under my belly button, lipo and a hip to hip scar for $10000.

Are there other surgeons who would be willing to modify the procedure for my particular wants and needs?
