Tummy Tuck

Shape and Trim Your Abs with a Tummy Tuck

Inevitably, the stomach is the first place that extra weight and fat settle on the body. Years of weight losses and gains, pregnancy and even genetic factors can impact the abdominal physique. A tummy tuck removes the excess fat and skin and creates a defined midsection that is smoother and firmer than ever before.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure at Coastal Cosmetic Center

Consultation

An initial consultation for a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, will include a confidential analysis of how our board certified plastic surgeons can correct the stomach bulge, firm and tighten excess skin and erase stretch marks above the navel. Additionally, before and after pictures will help each patient visualize how they will look after the procedure. Since each tummy tuck varies from patient to patient, all associated costs will be reviewed after a treatment plan has been developed.

Procedure

The tummy tuck procedure is done on an outpatient basis at the Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited surgery center in Jacksonville, FL. An incision is made that spans the hips and surgeons then tighten the abdominal muscles, narrow the waistline and remove excess skin. A tummy tuck can range between two to five hours in length under general anesthesia.

Recovery

Discomfort rapidly decreases several days following the procedure. Patients can expect to be off of work for two weeks and experience swelling and bruising during the post-operative period. The results of a tummy tuck are long lasting, but are optimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise.

A tummy tuck is an excellent option for both women and men with extra abdominal fat and skin who are looking for a tighter, flatter and more youthful shape.
