A tummy tuck is a wonderful option for smoothing a sagging belly. It may be necessary after abdominal surgeries, massive weight loss, or multiple pregnancies. If you are considering a tummy tuck in South Florida, be sure to choose the Plastic Surgery Specialists of South Florida for our excellent care, kind practitioners, and cutting-edge treatment options.
First, we will consider whether you are an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck. You should be close to your ideal body weight and should not have plans for becoming pregnant in the future. If you are hoping to lose fat with a tummy tuck, then this may not be the right choice for you. Tummy tucks are best for those who have extremely saggy skin around the abdomen and for those who need their abdominals tightened. Even if a tummy tuck is not right for you, we offer several other body contouring treatment options that can help you reach your goals.
Second, we will make sure that you know what a tummy tuck entails. This is an invasive surgical procedure that will require some type of anesthesia. Additionally, you will have a long incision made at the base of your abdomen.
Third, know that your complete results will not be immediately apparent as soon as the surgery is over. While you will be able to see some changes to your belly as soon as the dressings are removed, you will need to wait for all of the swelling in your abdominal region to subside. You will need to take time to recover fully after your tummy tuck before returning to your usual workout regimen.
Nearly all of our patients who have had tummy tucks love their results. They feel better about their bodies whether their clothes are on or off, which translates into higher self-esteem. The scars are well-hidden far below the waistline, typically in the same place as a C-section scar would sit. As long as you follow our post-surgery recommendations, you can expect good healing and positive results from your surgery.
