Tummy Tuck Orlando
Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, has become an increasingly popular procedure to help both men and women retain or regain a youthful and fit appearance. Abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat around your stomach while repairing underlying abdominal muscles that have become saggy, whether due to aging, weight loss or pregnancy.
Is an Orlando tummy tuck right for you? The best candidates for abdominoplasty are those in relatively good physical shape, near their normal body weight, with issues in their torso region. Issues include stretched abdominal muscles, typically from childbirth; excess abdominal skin, likely from weight loss; or fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise.
A tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia and typically lasts from two to four hours. The estimated recovery time is two weeks, with six weeks needed for a return to full activity. The outcome will be a flatter, firmer stomach more in line with your height, weight and bone structure. A good diet and exercise will ensure the results are long-lasting.
At your initial consultation, Dr. George Pope and his team will discuss your goals, your expectations, and possible treatments. They’ll also assess your general health and determine if you’d be a good candidate for Orlando tummy tuck.
