Tummy Tuck Surgery in Miami, Florida
A slim and toned abdomen is on nearly everyone’s wish list in Miami. Even with proper nutrition, diet and regular exercise, your stomach can be left with excess skin and fat. Age, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgeries or weight loss, can weaken or pull apart skin and abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, may be the ideal solution to remove stretch marks, excess skin, and fat from your stomach and tighten the abdominal muscles.
What To Expect From Your Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure or a substitute for exercise or a healthy diet, but we at A Solution For Beauty by Pierini in Miami realize that for many men and women, a flat, well-toned abdomen is something we cannot always achieve on our own. A tummy tuck is recommended for patients within their healthy weight range. If you are overweight, you will be advised to lose weight prior to the procedure.
The first step is a free consultation and examination with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to examine your abdominal muscles, excess fat and sagging skin, as well as discuss your body contouring goals. You will then customize a solution to best restore your appearance and self-confidence. Are you an out-of-town patient? We are able to do a free virtual video consultation to give you the estimate for your procedure and help you with all travel arrangements to come to Miami for your cosmetic surgery.

A tummy tuck is commonly performed with liposuction to help define your waist and give you a slimmer silhouette. Our board-certified plastic surgeons also perform “Mommy Make-over” procedures which include: abdominoplasty, breast augmentation with or without a breast lift and minor liposuction to create the best body contouring solution for you.
About The Abdominoplasty Procedure
An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is usually performed under general anesthesia in our Florida registered outpatient surgery center in Miami and does not require a hospital stay.
There are two types of surgical techniques used for tummy tucks:
- Full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) – recommended for patients who have sagging skin and fat above as well as below the belly button. An incision is made below the belly button to access and tighten the muscles and lift loose skin.
- Mini-abdominoplasty (mini-tummy tuck) – recommended for patients who have only a small amount of extra skin hanging below the belly button.
Recovery After Tummy Tuck Surgery
You will need to wear a compression garment to help control swelling and provide support. Patients will be up and mobile the day of the surgery walking slightly bent over. Most people can do light activity in 5-7 days but should avoid heavy lifting or pushing for about 6 weeks.
