Tummy Tuck Miami Florida

A tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdomen and the muscles of the abdomen wall are tightened. This procedure can drastically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. The procedure is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies have stretched their abdomen so far that it does not return to it's normal shape. A tummy tuck is also helpful for those who have lost a significant amount of weight but still possess loose, sagging skin. Tummy tucks are often performed in conjunction with liposuction.

The best candidates for an abdominoplasty are men or women in good health and relatively good shape, but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that does not respond to diet or exercise says veteran Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Kane. Those who are considering losing a significant amount of weight, or women still planning future pregnancies, may want to consider waiting before undergoing the tummy tuck procedure.

During the tummy tuck procedure a horizontal incision is made just above the pubic area and excess skin and fat is removed from the abdomen. Skin is separated from the abdominal wall. The underlying muscles of the abdominal wall are then tightened. The abdominal skin is then drawn downward and the excess is removed. Some of these risks of tummy tucks include infection and blood clots. These can be treated easily and are rare. Tummy Tucks can improve abdominal appearance, however the procedure has been known to leave scarring. Some scarring can be severe and may require a second operation.

There are other alternatives to the tummy tuck procedure. A mini tummy tuck can be performed, in which only improves the appearance of the abdomen below the navel. During a mini tummy tuck, only a short horizontal incision is made and the skin is separated only between the incision line and the navel. Another alternative is undergoing liposuction in order to remove the abdominal fat. Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck. Please consult with your plastic surgeon as to which procedure will best meet your needs.Contact Miami Plastic Surgeon Dr. Daniel Kane today.
