Tummy Tuck Jacksonville
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure removes excess fat tissue and skin, and in most cases restores damaged or separated muscles creating an abdominal shape that is smoother and firmer. The tummy tuck procedure is used at our Jacksonville Beach, Orange Park and Jacksonville area practice to aesthetically shape the abdominal area. The first place you notice a few extra pounds is usually in the stomach area. Even if you perform regular abdominal exercises like crunches and sit-ups, most people find it difficult-if not impossible-to shed the unwanted midsection fat commonly referred to as “tummy pooch.” A “tummy tuck,” can quickly and easily get rid of the unwanted pounds and inches around the midsection. Abdominoplasty cosmetic surgery reduces girth and greatly improves the definition and tone of your abs.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck procedure is done on an outpatient basis under anesthesia at our Jacksonville, FL facility. An incision is made from one hip to the other, and skin is separated from the abdominal muscles. The muscles are tightened, the waistline is narrowed, and the skin flap is folded down in order to remove excess skin. The skin flap is repositioned and sutured closed. The tummy tuck procedure performed at our Jacksonville practice can take from two to five hours, depending on the extent of the work to be done. The most common side effects of tummy tuck cosmetic surgery are bruising and swelling, which may last about 10 days.
Can I see before and after pictures of people in the Jacksonville area who had a Tummy tuck?
During your consultation visit, your surgeon will show you before and after pictures of patients from Jacksonville, Orange Park and Jacksonville Beach who underwent a tummy tuck procedure. You will see firsthand the difference this procedure made for our patients and be able to visualize what it will do for you.
What is the average cost of a tummy tuck? Is there a charge for the consultation?
At Coastal Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, the initial consultation appointment is confidential. During your meeting with the surgeon, you will receive a detailed breakdown of all costs involved in your tummy tuck procedure. Because the extent of tummy tuck surgery varies from patient to patient, our surgeons prefer to examine the problem before quoting a price.
