One of the Best Tummy Tucks in Florida! Are You A Candidate?

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the name “Florida”? Perhaps you think of a certain amusement park run by a small mouse with large ears. Maybe the image of retirees flocking to beaches armed with lounge chairs while their front yards fill up with snow. While plastic surgery may not be the first thought that pops into your head, one of the best board certified plastic surgeons specializing in tummy tucks happens to be in Florida, and it just might be worth your while to add a trip there to your vacation plans.

Love Your Body Again

Don't let time get the best of your body. Fight back with a Tummy Tuck to restore your stunning shape.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

An abdominoplasty (more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck) is a cosmetic procedure that removes both excessive fat and skin, repairs weak muscles, and contours the whole abdominal region, resulting in a slimmer, more toned profile. This is done through a surgery that is performed under a general anesthetic. Once all the excess tissue has been removed, the skin is pulled taut and sutured back together, and the belly button is reoriented as needed.

What Is Recovery from a Tummy Tuck Like?

Recovery from a tummy tuck can last anywhere from two to four weeks. The first week or two will require a significant amount of downtime, so make sure you plan for adequate time off and potential assistance during this time. Directly following your procedure, your abdomen will be wrapped in a compression garment and bandages, and you may receive drain tubes to allow any swelling to drain. Your doctor will go over any prescription medications you may need, recovery care, and signs to look out for around the surgical site.

Improve Your Confidence

Feel confident and comfortable - no matter what you choose to wear out in the sun.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tucks are ideal for individuals who are struggling to lose that “pooch”, despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle with adequate exercise, healthy diet, and a steady weight.

You are an ideal candidate if you are ready to bid the belly goodbye because it’s what YOU want, not because an outside image is pressuring you. You are a perfect candidate if you have realistic expectations of the surgery outcomes. You are a wonderful candidate for a tummy tuck if you are ready to have increased self-esteem, higher levels of confidence, and expanded quality of life.

Ideal candidates will have a fairly consistent weight, healthy diet, and regularly engage in moderate exercise.
