liposculpture-surgery-02You’ve tried everything, exercise, dieting, getting a good night’s sleep, the whole shebang and all to no avail. Your tummy is still bothering you.

Perhaps body image has been an issue that has plagued you for your whole life. Perhaps you have completed your family with your last child and you are pondering getting a tummy tuck to rid yourself of the extra loose skin and muscle laxity, the results of multiple pregnancies. And perhaps you have just lost a lot of weight and it is time to eliminate the folds of skin in order to really appreciate all your hard work.

The tummy tuck is one of the most sought after procedures for abdominal contouring, fat removal, and muscle tightening today. The results are profound. Improved posture, smaller waist size and increased core strength contribute to feeling better about oneself along with greater self-esteem.

Common Causes

When the muscles of the abdominal wall are separated or weakened, as in pregnancy or tremendous weight gain, it is difficult to attain a flat tummy again, even with exercise.

There are some body types that are out of proportion with the tummy area being larger than the surrounding area. The excess fatty tissue is the first area that will experience weight gain. The loose or sagging skin that is the result of weight loss will never gain elasticity and return to its original state.

To attain the results that you want it is important to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.

What’s Right For You

There are plenty of catch phrases in the world of tummy tucks. You will hear about the Mini Tummy Tuck a lot. The term “Mini” refers to a small scar, shorter recovery and less money. However, the truth is that the Mini Tummy Tuck should actually refer to the size of the abdomen. This procedure is perfect for candidates with a small protrusion just below the belly button.

Traditional tummy tucks address the area above and below the belly button and all the way to the bikini line. However the issue of love handles is not addressed. Additionally, the scar extends from hip to hip as well as around the belly button.

The Miami Tummy Tuck as performed by Dr. Bernabe Vazquez addresses contouring the abdomen in a safer and more effective procedure. Twenty years of experience performing and perfecting the high lateral tension tummy tuck led to the creation of his Miami Tummy Tuck. It is the most conclusive procedure, first addressing the upper abdomen and sides of the waist with a liposuction procedure. This methodology yields a shorter scar with less lifting and cutting of the surrounding tissues. The end result is a shorter recovery time and drains that get removed in 24 hours.

With traditional tummy tucks, the patient can count on up to two weeks of a drain.

Dr. Bernabe Vazquez of Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery has a wealth of knowledge and is well regarded amongst his peers and patients alike. Our advice to everyone considering the tummy tuck procedure is to start with a thorough consultation.
