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
"OMG......I can't believe how awesome I look. My tummy is like a 20 year old. My breasts are perfect. I have been blessed to have a surgeon like Dr Rosenbaum."- R. / Google / Jul 16, 2019
"I rarely leave written reviews, yet it is my honor to do so for Dr. Rosenbaum. My experience with him and his staff was great. They were welcoming and kind at all of my visits. On the morning of my scheduled double surgery with Dr. Rosenbaum and my General Surgeon, things did not go as planned, due to my GS being on call. Therefore, my procedure was pushed back, and needless to say, Dr. Rosenbaum adjusted his schedule to accommodate, and that was greatly appreciated!!! I am now approximately seven weeks post op, and recovery is going extremely well. I am happy with my current results, and expect things to improve even more. Therefore, I highly recommend Dr. Rosenbaum, if you’re considering a tummy tuck. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum and staff🤗🙏🏾🤗."- K.T. / Google / Jan 29, 2021
"I came to Dr. Rosenbaum after a procedure I had done somewhere else went terribly wrong. After we had a consultation he and and I decided my only chance to correct the problem was a full tummy tuck. I was horrified! I would never have done anything invasive because I am so fearful but unfortunately it was the only choice. He was INCREDIBLE! He constantly reassured me as we got closer to the surgery and made me feel calm. He was very confident about the procedure all the time. Nora, his office manager was equally helpful and took care of every aspect of preparation leading up to the surgery and after. She always took my calls and post surgery she reassured me through my first few days home. Dr. Rosenbaum did an amazing job fixing the original problem. I get compliments all the time on what a clean scar I have from others who have had the same procedure elsewhere. I am 4 months out now and getting better each day. He is a perfectionist at his work and I do HIGHLY recommend him to anyone"- D. / Healthgrades / Feb 21, 2022
"Dr. Rosenbaum performed the ultimate mommy makeover. He performed nothing short of a miracle. I had a breast reduction, tummy tuck and lipo on back fat, flanks and breast wings. I cannot believe the difference. Anyone who knew me before is also in shock. I finally look like I should look and all thanks to Dr Rosenbaum and his team. Yoly & Nora were amazing as well. When I was at the hospital, I was able to text Yoly with questions and concerns. Nora even ordered a missing compression garment I was missing for me while I was at the hospital. Yoly maintained my family aware of everything happening with me the day of Ops. I cannot thank Dr Rosenbaum and his team enough for the work they did on me."- M.D. / Google / Aug 05, 2020

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.
