What are the Benefits of a Miami Tummy Tuck?
Pregnancy or significant weight loss can leave you with excess skin, fat, and stretch marks around your abdominal area. The most effective way to remove this loose skin and restore your firm, smooth abdomen is to perform a tummy tuck. This surgery can dramatically reshape your abdominal area for results you want people to see.
WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?
A tummy tuck Miami or abdominoplasty uses an incision to tighten the abdominal skin and remove any excess. It also removes fat using liposuction to sculpt and shape the area for a flatter, smoother look. A safe tummy tuck in Miami also lets your surgeon correct looseness or separation of the abdominal muscles. This problem commonly occurs during pregnancy. Tightening these muscles makes the abdomen look more toned.
HOW DOES A TUMMY TUCK WORK?
Dr. Earle or Dr. Vidal will use an incision that runs along the lower abdomen. The length of the scar depends on how much skin you need to remove. Your surgeon may perform liposuction to remove fat and sculpt your abdominal area. The loose or separated abdominal muscles will be tightened to produce a flatter stomach.
