About Tummy Tuck Surgery
Sometimes loose skin on the abdomen cannot be tightened with diet and exercise alone. At Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL, we offer abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck), which removes loose skin around the lower abdomen and tightens the tissue and muscle of the midsection for a tighter, slimmer appearance. This surgery is often chosen by a woman who has carried children or by individuals who have recently lost weight. During a private consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, you will receive a thorough assessment so we can determine if a tummy tuck alone will provide the results, or whether liposuction should be incorporated for a better outcome.
Tummy tuck surgery is life changing for most of our patients who have had the procedure. The ideal candidates for this dramatic transformation are:
- Women who have C-section scars and/or extra skin and fat deposits in the lower abdomen
- Men and women who have stretch marks and loose skin on their abdomen
- Men and women who have had weight loss surgery and have maintained their goal weight for at least a year and desire removal of the excess skin and remaining fat deposits
Tummy Tuck Reviews
"I would absolutely recommend Dr. Gary Rosenbaum. He really is the best. I had to undergo breast reconstruction and to complicate matters I had previously had radiation in the breast area. Given the situation, I needed a doctor with the most sophisticated skill set. Dr. Rosenbaum was incredible - he was able to seamlessly graft the area where I had radiation using tissue from my stomach and back. My breasts look so great now, better than they ever looked and so NATURAL! I have seen a lot of surgeries but he really is the best. And while I had my breast surgery, he was also able to do a tummy tuck - INCREDIBLE! I feel like a beautiful woman, and for those of you who are undergoing mastectomy/breast reconstruction, you know that loosing the feeling of being a beautiful woman is a real concern. Dr. Rosenbaum truly is fantastic and he is so compassionate. He understands how important this surgery is to us as women and he involves you completely in the entire process. Dr. Rosenbaum is an absolute perfectionist and he will not be satisfied until you are perfectly satisfied. He deserves the highest praise!!!"- I.K. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2013
"At 72...a tummy tuck was not on my bucket list...but 2 abdominal surgeries left me with a large hernia and my general surgeon said I would get the best result by having a plastic surgeon do the "tuck" at the same time. He recommended Dr. Rosenbaum and I am so happy he did. The result is AMAZING! The surgery was more complicated than expected and Dr. R went above and beyond to make sure I had the best result..which I did. I highly recommend him."- B.K. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2018
What to Expect
Tummy tuck patients usually have the procedure in an accredited outpatient surgical facility; however, when the tummy tuck is combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be required. Some tummy tucks are more invasive than others; for example, some individuals may be candidates for a mini tummy tuck, while others may need an extensive approach. The procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and can take anywhere between 2 – 4 hours depending on the nature of the surgical case. After surgery, patients will be placed in a compression garment and will be discharged to rest at home. Tummy tuck surgery requires a slow approach to recover and it is important to note that a complete recovery may take up to six weeks or longer.
The results following a tummy tuck procedure equate to a tighter, more toned abdominal appearance. Scarring is a part of this procedure; however, our skillfully trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rosenbaum, creates the incisions with care, placing them in inconspicuous areas so that undergarments can hide them. Patients often feel that the skin removal and flat appearance of their stomach far outweigh any scarring that resides after surgery.
