A full tummy tuck can help Florida patients achieve sleek and contoured abdominals. Also known as an abdominoplasty, the procedure involves removal of excess skin and fat pockets and tightening lax muscles which typically develop due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.
While a full tummy tuck is an effective way to smooth and tighten the midsection, there are other strategies Florida patients may want to consider, including:
- Partial abdominoplasty – Also known as a mini tummy tuck, this procedure involves removal of excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen only, versus the treatment of the entire abdominal region as with a full tummy tuck.
- Liposuction – Liposuction is an effective tool to remove fat deposits around the abdomen and waist. Ideal candidates have good skin elasticity and are at or near their goal weight.
- Umbilicoplasty – Commonly known as bellybutton reshaping, this procedure involves the removal of loose abdominal skin and/or fat deposits surrounding the navel, which is then stitched closer to underlying muscle for a pulled in effect.
- Exercise – Exercises that target the abdominal muscles can drastically improve muscle tone and contouring.
For some patients, no amount of exercise will sufficiently flatten and tone the abdomen, so a cosmetic procedure can offer an ideal solution. Residents in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and other communities throughout Florida seeking a tummy tuck or any other cosmetic procedure can turn to Board Certified Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery for his expert advice and surgical skill.
