The first step in an abdominoplasty is to make an incision across the abdomen, below the navel. The length of the incision varies based on the amount of skin to be removed. In some cases, the incision will stretch from hip bone to hip bone, while in others it will be shorter. After separating the abdominal skin and cutting it away from the navel, the surgeon repositions and tightens the stomach muscles. Finally, he stretches the skin down, trimming away the excess, creating a new hole for the navel, and reattaching the skin to complete the tummy tuck.
Tips for Choosing a Professional Surgeon
If you are looking for a professional cosmetic surgeon, it is important to make sure you look over their credentials and ask a lot of questions. If you do not, you may wind up with a botched result that leaves you unhappy.
Consider the following questions:
Am I a good candidate for the procedure?
How long can I expect the results to last?
Should I have the procedure done now?
How many patients have you performed tummy tucks on?
Abdominoplasty is appropriate for a wide variety of people concerned with the contours of their abdomen. You might be a tummy tuck candidate if you have experienced any of the following:
Massive Weight Loss: After losing large amounts of weight, many people are left with extra skin and residual fat. There are a variety of procedures available for these people, including tummy tuck, breast lift and reduction, and body lift. For most of these patients, some combination of procedures including abdominoplasty is the solution.
Recent Pregnancy: Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles and skin in a way that is often impossible to reverse without surgery. Using modern tummy tuck techniques, our doctors can tighten the muscles and skin in addition to removing fat.
Aging: Over time, everyone's skin begins to lose elasticity and sag. Genetic factors are partially to blame, but eventually time catches up with almost everyone. Patients whose skin has sagged with age can turn to abdominoplasty to help turn back the clock.
Basic Requirements: Patients also need to meet certain basic requirements, including a minimum level of health, to qualify for a tummy tuck. Our doctors in Miami evaluate abdominoplasty patients in detail before recommending surgery.
Tummy tuck is a major procedure, and the patients should be prepared for a significant recovery period after surgery. Certain patients may need to stay overnight in the hospital after abdominoplasty. Swelling and pain are to be expected, but they can be controlled with compression bandages and medication. Patients should spend the first few days after surgery resting and recovering.
The doctor usually removes stitches about a week after surgery. At this point, most tummy tuck patients are ready to begin a light exercise regimen that will speed the healing process and help prevent blood clots. Patients need to continue wearing their compression bandages and exercising gently for several weeks, but should avoid strenuous activity for up to six weeks as they heal.
Some scarring is inevitable even after healing is complete, but the doctor works with every abdominoplasty patient at our practice, to choose an incision site that will best be concealed by his or her clothing. Ultimately, most patients feel that this scarring is a small price to pay for a flatter, smoother stomach.

The tummy tuck price should not be a factor when considering a plastic surgeon, make sure that the doctor has experience performing this procedure and is also board certified by the american board of plastic surgery.
A mini tummy tuck is much smaller in size than the traditional and does not require such a large incision. A mini tuck also does not require that the belly button be moved.
During a mini tummy tuck, only a small portion of your skin is removed. Since the procedure is not as detailed and intense, most people undergoing a mini tuck will only have a small area of fat to get rid of. If you have a small amount of fat you cannot get to disappear, then this surgery is ideal for you.
An extended tummy tuck is different than both the mini and the traditional, although it is most closely associated to the traditional. An extended tuck is designed to remove all sagging and drooping skin on the stomach, lower back, and the hips. Candidates for this procedure should have additional fat or skin in areas other than just the stomach.
The incision is much greater and is made from across the stomach all the way to the lower portion of the back. During an extended tummy tuck, the patient will receive liposuction at the same time to remove extra fat from the area. Once all of the additional fat is removed, the muscles in the stomach and hips will be tightened and the excess skin removed from the body.
Since an extended tuck is an extensive procedure and requires a large amount of skin removal, your belly button will need to be removed and repositioned. You will spend time in the hospital after the surgery and then finish your recovery at home.
The traditional tummy tuck is one of the most commonly known procedures and is ideal for a man or a woman. If you are in good health, you can have the surgery performed without any complications or problems. A traditional tuck focuses on the entire tummy and reduces what diet or exercise cannot accomplish.
The incision is large and typically runs from hipbone to hipbone. Some liposuction may be used to ensure additional fat is removed. A lot of skin is removed during the surgery and your belly button is repositioned into a better area. Since the traditional tummy tuck is a large procedure, you will need to stay in the hospital for a few days for recovery.
