Please do not hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about this procedure and discuss your aesthetic goals with our abdominoplasty professionals.

What is a tummy tuck in Miami?

Our bodies continuously change throughout the years due to several factors, including weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and aging. These changes can result in weakened muscles and skin around our abdomen, stretch marks, cellulite, and excess adipose tissue. At times, more than exercise, a healthy diet, and even liposuction is needed to achieve our aesthetic goals. In these cases, a tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty in Miami is a solution.

A tummy tuck is a surgical intervention that removes excess fat and skin and repair weakened abdominal muscles to achieve a more firm and slim abdomen. Stretch marks, cellulite, and imperfections can all be targeted in a single intervention. A tummy tuck may be performed alone, or in combination with liposuction or lipectomy of the arms or thighs. A tummy tuck is typically pursued purely for aesthetic reasons.

Reasons to do a tummy tuck in Miami

We welcome patients from all over the world for a tummy tuck in Miami. Many of our patients come to us after losing or gaining weight or because they feel their skin is sagging more postpartum. Whatever your reason, if you feel your belly has excess fat resistant to dietary changes or exercise, a tummy tuck at our boutique is the solution for you.

Preparation for the tummy tuck Miami

The necessary preparations for a tummy tuck Miami are the same as for any other surgery. Our professionals will analyze your medical, smoking, and surgical history and, after performing a thorough physical exam, provide you with the best treatment recommendations. We will then discuss how much fat and skin we should remove and create a surgical plan. We will review all necessary preparations at your consultation, including what medications to discontinue, to ensure you are ready for your procedure.

What is abdominoplasty like?

Abdominoplasty can be considered a complex intervention because the procedure often combines several different techniques to achieve the desired aesthetic. Our professionals at Plastic Surgery Boutique have had years of training and experience to perfect this procedure.

The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision across your pubic area, typically from hipbone to hipbone. This incision site is chosen so that patients can easily hide any surgical scars under clothing. The surgeon then removes excess fat and skin from your abdomen. The amount of skin and fat that is to be removed determines the length of the incision and whether an additional belly button incision is necessary. Often, liposuction is performed during the procedure to provide optimal aesthetic results. Any weak or loose abdominal muscles are tightened to provide the abdomen with a more firm appearance. This step is especially relevant in women who have had multiple pregnancies. The umbilicus is then repositioned through a procedure called neo umbilicoplasty. Small tubes are placed under the skin as you recover from your surgery to drain any excess blood or fluid. Finally, the skin is sutured back together.

What to Expect During Tummy Tuck Recovery

During your tummy tuck recovery, an abdominal support bandage or compression garment is placed around your abdomen to ensure proper healing and minimize swelling. The recovery phase will be slow but is not typically very painful. The first few days after the surgery will be the most uncomfortable. Our professionals will provide you will specific post-surgery instructions to ensure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible. We recommend resting for at least 20 days and only returning to strenuous activity once your physician says it is safe. We recommend sitting or lying down and only taking very light walks at first. After approximately 2 months, you can slowly and carefully return to your normal activities.

Postoperative dressings must remain intact and dry for approximately one week. You may shower once the dressings and drainage tubes have been removed. You must avoid any intense physical exercise during the first six weeks following your surgery in order to give your body a chance to heal comfortably. For the same reason, it is recommended that you sleep with a pillow under your knees. However, it is important to get out of bed and walk regularly in order to activate blood flow in the legs and avoid thrombophlebitis. You will need to wear an abdominal support belt for a minimum of one month in order for the tissue to heal properly.

You can resume your normal physical activities three to six weeks after your surgery. It is important for you to listen to your body. It will tell you if you are ready to exercise and how much exercise you can handle. Pain or discomfort when exercising is a sign that your body is not quite healed and that it would be better to wait a few more days before trying again.

Am I a good candidate for Miami tummy tuck?

A good candidate for abdominoplasty is an individual in general good health with reasonable expectations of a tummy tuck procedure. If you smoke, we ask you to discontinue using any tobacco products at least 4 weeks before and after a tummy tuck. This is important to lower the risk of surgical complications such as blood clots and skin necrosis and ensure proper wound healing. 

Who should avoid a tummy tuck?

Patients who are in overall good health are more likely to achieve the ideal surgical results. If you are currently being treated for an underlying medical condition or have any uncontrolled medical conditions that could impair healing, you may want to address these prior to considering this surgery. Furthermore, patients should understand that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it aims to sculpt and redefine your figure. The outcomes of a tummy tuck surgery can be diminished if the patient gains a significant amount of weight post-surgery. Furthermore, patients who are hoping to get pregnant are advised to postpone a tummy tuck surgery until after having children. It is also not recommended for patients over 80 or 85 years of age.

What is the price of a tummy tuck in Miami?

Are you curious about a tummy tuck in Miami? The cost of a tummy tuck depends on the complexity of the clinical case and on the amount of fat and skin that is removed. Therefore, we determine the final cost of the surgery on an individual basis. By scheduling an appointment with our professionals or visiting our office, we can provide you with an estimated cost and inform you of which payment methods we accept.

How long is a tummy tuck surgery?

A “mini tummy tuck” takes approximately 1 – 1.5 hours to perform. A typical tummy tuck surgery takes between 2 and 4 hours to perform, and some cases may take up to 6 hours to complete. However, you will also spend some time preparing for the surgery, which typically takes 30 to 45 minutes. You will likely stay in the recovery for 2 to 3 hours after your procedure. Our professionals recommend taking a day off from work for your surgery.

Abdominoplasty: risks and precautions

Does a tummy tuck carry any risk? Many patients have this concern because they hear that a tummy tuck in Miami FL is a complex and lengthy operation. However, tummy tucks have a very high success rate, and complications are rare. It is important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for your procedure. The risks associated with a tummy tuck surgery are the same as for any other surgery. For example, allergic reactions to anesthesia, bleeding, delayed wound healing, infection, and bruising are typical risks of any surgery. Small tubes are placed under the skin as you recover from your surgery to drain any excess blood or fluid that may accumulate.
