Tummy Tuck in Miami – What is It?

A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty, and the procedure aims to reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, also lovingly referred to as a beer gut. The course of the procedure will remove excess skin and fat from both the middle and lower abdomen, and in the process, help to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

You have probably heard that there are two different types of tummy tuck, and this is absolutely true. The first type of tummy tuck is the standard, and it involves greater amount of excess skin being removed. The mini tummy tuck, on the other hand, requires only a minimal amount of work, and a much smaller incision. That being said, it will require much less recovery time, and will ultimately give you the ability to return to work faster. This second type of procedure however does depend on you perhaps being smaller or having less stomach fat to deal with. You will need to speak with your physician to determine which type of tummy tuck your body requires.


Getting Ready for your Procedure

With any type of medical procedure, surgery especially surgery, there are certain things you must do in order to become properly prepared. Your body has limits of course, and you need to make sure that you are operating within them. That being said, before you enter for your surgical procedure, you should give up a few things, at least for a while. Two of the major vices that we recommend you avoid are smoking and prescription medication. The smoking should likely stop at least two weeks before the surgery, and your medication, roughly two days prior. If you are prescribed an important medication, it is recommended that you speak with your physician before stopping your intake of it. This could cause major complications and potentially even be deadly if you are not careful. The doctor who prescribed the medication should be able to give you advice, so make sure you schedule an appointment with your primary care physician beforehand.

In addition to giving up those two important items, it is important that you find a driver to bring you to and from the surgery as you will be unable to operate a vehicle for a duration of at least two weeks following your surgery.


Calculating the Cost

One of the most common questions, obviously is how much a tummy tuck in Miami FL will actually cost. Generally, this will depend on the type of tummy tuck you need to undergo as well as how much fat needs to be removed. It is important to remember that everyone is entirely different and will necessitate different variations on the procedure. That said, before you can commit to the procedure it is strongly recommended that you speak with the surgeon and determine what will be involved.
