Tummy Tuck in Weston, FL

The tummy tuck, also known as an “abdominoplasty,” is a cosmetic procedure for men and women that sculpts the abdomen into a more flattering shape. This procedure removes excess skin and fat in the upper and lower abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles, resulting in a slender, firmer abdominal appearance.

Dr. Messa offers tummy tuck surgery for his patients in Weston, Florida, and the surrounding areas.

What Are the Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Tummy tuck surgery is a customizable plastic surgery procedure performed on men and women to help contour and sculpt the midsection. Patients who choose abdominoplasty often enjoy the following benefits:

  • Tightens loose, sagging, or hanging skin
  • Reduces chafing from loose skin
  • Reduces excess fat in the lower abdomen
  • Combines easily with liposuction to reduce fat in the surrounding areas
  • Repairs and tightens loose or separated abdominal muscles, correcting diastasis recti
  • Repairs areas of weakness or defects in the abdominal wall, such as an umbilical hernia
  • Reduces instances of stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
  • Removes stretch marks if located on the skin removed during the procedure
  • Helps patients easily exercise and comfortably fit into the clothing they desire to wear

What Are My Tummy Tuck Options?

Mini Tummy Tuck

If desired, the woman can choose to have a mini tummy tuck if the skin laxity is localized to the lower abdominal region, which results in a smaller scar and a shorter recovery.

This technique cannot provide the same results of a full tummy tuck but is ideal for men and women with a lesser degree of laxity.

Full Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck improves the overall abdominal appearance by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat.

During a full tummy tuck, an incision runs from hip to hip just above the pubic region. From here, loose skin and fat are removed, and loose abdominal muscles are tightened.

Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy may completely change the appearance of a woman’s abdomen. The abdominal muscles stretch and become loose or can separate, the skin sags, stretch marks may form, and fat collects more easily in the lower abdomen.

A tummy tuck is the ultimate procedure for mothers because it targets all of these concerns and is a major component of a Mommy Makeover.
