Achieve Your Dream Body

Tummy Tuck at Estética Institute

We all strive for a flat and well-toned abdomen through exercise and weight control. Unfortunately, sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. From all the procedures we perform at Estetica Institute in West Palm Beach Tummy Tuck (or Abdominoplasty) is one of the most exciting and life-changing ones. In just two hours, a loose and bulging abdomen can be transformed into a tight, sexy stomach. During a tummy tuck procedure, the muscles of the abdominal wall are also tightened to eliminate the bulge that can be so annoying, particularly after a pregnancy.

More Sculpted Abdomen

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to enhance body contours by removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightening the abdominal muscles or wall.

This procedure can effectively tighten and flatten the abdominal area, resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. In some cases, liposuction may be combined with a tummy tuck to further contour the abdomen by removing any remaining fatty tissue. A tummy tuck can help you achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing figure by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles.

What a Tummy Tuck won’t do

Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies would be advised to postpone a tummy tuck.

What are the benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck Surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen. In most cases, it also restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

Reasons for considering a Tummy Tuck

  • Remove skin that has lost elasticity after extreme weight loss.
  • Tighten loose abdominal muscles due to pregnancy or weight gain.
  • Achieve a more youthful abdomen and remove any unwanted fatty deposits. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

Are you a good candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Candidates for a Tummy Tuck should be in relatively good shape, with large fatty deposits or loose skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise.

Additional Reading

  • You’re physically healthy.
  • You have excess skin in your abdomen that will not improve with diet or exercise.
  • The shape of your abdomen has been affected by pregnancy or massive weight loss.
  • You feel that your protruding abdomen is unattractive.
  • You have realistic expectations. It is very helpful to look at Before and After pictures to assist you with your expectations and your decision process.

How is the surgery performed?

Your Tummy Tuck Procedure

Our expert Anesthesia team will place the patient under IV sedation. The surgery can last between one and three hours. A tummy tuck is performed by making incisions along the lower abdomen at the level of the bikini line. The skin is separated from the muscle area up to the level of the ribs, and the excess is removed. The muscles are sutured back together, and any hernias that exist are repaired. The skin is then closed in several layers to achieve the best scar possible.

An exciting new medication called Exparel will be used to minimize post-operative pain. Exparel revolutionized the abdominoplasty procedure as it dramatically reduced pain by utilizing a patented, time-release medication injected at the end of the surgery around the sensitive muscles. Many patients report almost no pain after this procedure. A compression garment is then placed, which must be worn for about one month.

Tummy Tuck Results

Although you may experience some swelling and discomfort during the initial two weeks following your tummy tuck procedure, you can expect to stand tall and be proud of your slimmer and more proportionate body shape.

It's important to keep in mind that your final results may not be fully visible for up to two weeks due to swelling and your inability to stand up straight during the initial recovery period. However, once the swelling subsides and you are able to stand upright, you will be able to fully appreciate the transformation that has taken place.

Patients may take a shower 48 hours after surgery. With the addition of Exparel, the recovery discomfort is significantly reduced. You will require plenty of rest for a couple of days. The small drain that was placed to remove the healing fluids is removed after about one week. Almost all the sutures placed are self-dissolving. Consequently, the few sutures that remain are removed after one week.

Prescription pain medications are used for several days then over-the-counter pain relievers are used for about ten more days. The discomfort levels vary from patient to patient.
