About Tummy Tucks
A tummy tuck, or an abdominoplasty, can be an effective way to remove unwanted fat from the midsection, as well as tighten loose or sagging skin caused by pregnancy or weight loss. Varying levels of the procedure can be performed depending on each patient’s needs and goals. During your consultation at Beautiful Orlando Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Orlando, FL, we will discuss your options thoroughly and recommend the appropriate procedure based on your goals. An abdominoplasty can successfully produce a tighter, more flattened and toned abdominal area, offering a more sculpted silhouette.

The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are those in good health and who at or near their desired weight. Tummy tuck surgery should not be used as a form of weight loss, but as a means to tone the midsection after having already met your weight loss goals. Good candidates for tummy tucks are men or women who experience:
- Excessive skin around the belly button.
- A weakened abdominal wall.
- Sagging or loosened skin on the abdomen.
What to Expect
During the procedure, the surgeon will usually make a horizontal incision, typically between the belly button and pubic area to remove excess fat and tissue from the abdomen. The fascia, tissue beneath the skin, will be tightened and should the belly button require moving, it will be brought out through a small incision and repositioned. Excess skin will also be removed and the incision along the pubic area will be stitched. The result of this procedure is a minor scar that falls along the bikini line for easy coverage. Patients can expect the procedure to take approximately 3 hours, depending on their aesthetic goals.
Following abdominoplasty, there will be some swelling and bruising around the abdomen and belly button. For the first few days following the procedure, tubes may be used to drain the incision site of any blood and fluid. Some patients may be issued an antibiotic to help prevent infection. Patients will experience some abdominal pain, which is normal, and the swelling can take 6 weeks or more to subside. It is very important that patients are careful moving around following the first few months of surgery and they will need to schedule follow up appointments at our office periodically for progress checks.
