Tummy Tuck in Sarasota

Print This PageEmail this Page

Sagging abdominal skin, fat and muscle can result from pregnancy or substantial weight loss, or it can be an inherited tendency. Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a "tummy tuck," is a major surgical procedure to sculpt the lower abdomen and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. People visit our board-certified plastic surgeons for tummy tuck surgery from St. Petersburg, Tampa, Bradenton, Ft. Myers and across Southwest Florida in order to reduce the appearance of a protruding or sagging abdomen and look fit and firm once again.

Plastic surgery should be a rewarding experience that enhances your appearance and your self-confidence. Trust your aesthetic improvement to a board-certified plastic surgeon when you request a consultation at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center or call (941) 366-8897.

About Tummy Tuck Surgery

Your surgeon will give you a firmer abdominal wall and a narrower waistline by pulling the vertical muscles close together and stitching them in place. He will also remove the excess skin. Liposuction is often performed to remove excess pockets of fat.

In some cases, a less invasive mini tummy tuck can be performed. This requires a single, smaller incision and a shorter recovery time. Your surgeon will determine whether this variation of the procedure is appropriate for you.

Are You a Good Candidate?

To be a good candidate for any plastic surgery, you must have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. It's important to understand that a tummy tuck can enhance your appearance and self-confidence, but like all plastic surgery, it is not going to solve underlying emotional issues you may have. Always think carefully about your expectations and discuss any concerns with your surgeon.
