It is an ideal procedure for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, have experienced pregnancy, or who simply want to tone their abdominal area.

The partial tummy tuck is less invasive and carries with it less risk of complication. It also is a more affordable procedure. The partial tummy tuck is performed on a specific area of the abdomen that needs extra work.
A full tummy tuck will be performed on the entire abdominal area and provides more comprehensive results. Patients can work with Dr. Florin in order to determine which type of tummy tuck procedure is right for them. In some cases, liposuction is performed at the same time as the surgery in order to provide the patient with the most desirable results.
There is minimal scarring associated with the tummy tuck. Many people shy away from having cosmetic surgery procedures performed because they don’t want evidence of the operation left behind. However, the tummy tuck scar can be easily hidden given the fact that the incision is created in a discreet location.
Overall, recovery from a tummy tuck may be six months or more. However, most people take about two weeks off from work, depending on the demands of the job. Any discomfort that you experience during recovery can be controlled with pain medication and bruising and swelling may also occur. You will be instructed to wear a special compression garment to help reduce this swelling, as well as support your new body contours.
Minimal physical activity should be performed during the recovery period, as this prevents complications and injury to the patient. Patients who have had a tummy tuck should return to the surgeon for several follow-up visits in order to be sure that their body is healing properly.
