5At Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery we have many clients coming to us to tighten up the abdominal area. Offering an infallible technique that is less invasive and more effective than other methods, the results are beautiful, helping to boost confidence and create a more pleasing silhouette.

Getting Rid of Excess Fat and Skin

When your stomach has been stretched due to having several pregnancies or when a great deal of weight has been lost, it is often difficult to get rid of the excess of fat and skin that can occur. In this case, having a tummy tuck is the best solution for gaining a flatter and more toned midsection.


Also known as an abdominoplasty, there are three main types of tummy tucks that are available: a regular tuck, a mini, and the Miami Tummy Tuck. Each one of these methods is appropriate for particular situations, but at Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery, we find that the third is the most effective. Let’s briefly talk about each one so that you can see the difference:

The Regular Tummy Tuck

This is a complete tuck that is accomplished by opening up the abdominal area with an incision that stretches from one hip to the other, along the pubic area.. An incision will also be made around the navel during the procedure to release and move it later to accommodate the torso’s flatter dimensions. During the surgery, muscles are tightened by suturing them, and excess fat is cut away. This technique requires drainage tubes to be put underneath the skin in order to capture excess fluids. Once the surgery is complete, you will be bandaged and required to come in for periodical check ups until the healing is complete.

The Mini Tummy Tuck

This is a slightly less intensive operation that is appropriate when most of the fat and excess skin is found below the bellybutton area. Along with liposuction, the lower muscles are tightened and a smaller amount of excess loose skin is removed. This technique is only helpful in select patients.

The Miami Tummy Tuck

Fast becoming the most popular form of the tummy tuck, Dr. Bernabe Vazquez’s innovative protocol is much less invasive than the former two and allows the body to heal much faster. Additionally, no drainage is required as there is very little invasion to create the results you deserve. In this case, the lower and upper abdominal area is shaped with both liposuction and surgery. Once the lipo is complete there is usually much less cutting required, meaning your abdominal wall will suffer far less damage and you will have a minimal scar rather than the customary longer one. Creating a beautifully flat stomach that looks toned with a youthful sculptured waistline, the Miami Tummy Tuck is an excellent way to resolve issues that cannot be handled through diet and exercise. And with our comprehensive before, during, and after care, we monitor you every step of the way in order to make sure your healing and result goes as predicted.
