Tighten Your Tummy with a Mommy Makeover from Imagos Plastic Surgery

Becoming a mother or significant weight loss for the right reasons should be cause for celebration, but this is not always the case. Stretch marks, stretched abdominal muscles, loose skin, and other issues can linger — physically and mentally — after a pregnancy or weight loss journey. Although diet and exercise alone cannot fix these issues, a plastic surgery procedure called a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) provides an outstanding way to restore a youthful, tight, and contoured midsection. 

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri of Imagos Plastic Surgery has been helping these types of patients for many years from his Miami plastic surgery practice. Patients in Miami and all throughout Florida frequently partner with Dr. Perez-Gurri because of his expertise, excellent results, patient-first approach to care, artistic touch, and personable demeanor.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

The midsection is among the most complicated areas of the body to target. It gets even more complicated because, with age, the abdomen easily stores excess fat that is stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. Many different diet methods and activities have been attempted to get rid of excess abdominal fat and skin to no avail.

Fortunately, tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Perez-Gurri in Miami is specifically designed to target and improve the appearance of the midsection. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight-loss procedure but rather is performed to remove excess fatty tissue and skin while tightening the abdominal muscles. Patients can expect to achieve a flatter, more defined midsection.

What are the Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Slimmer Waistline

Having excess skin and fat in the midsection may keep you from having the slender silhouette you desire. Once the abdomen is recontoured and the skin tightened, patients can expect a slimmer, more defined waistline.

Tighter Abdominal Muscles

The majority of tummy tuck patients have weak abdominal muscles, especially women following pregnancy. After stretching to carry a baby, the abdominal muscles are left very thin and weak. Dr. Perez-Gurri repairs the muscles by suturing them together with muscle strips. The abdominal wall is strengthened, resulting in tighter abdominal muscles with a “corset-like” effect.

More Flattering Body Contours

Tummy tuck surgery focuses on the entire midsection. Patients will notice a flatter abdomen and a more defined waistline. Beautifully shaping the abdomen will improve the appearance of the midsection and provide more flattering body contours. When combined with other surgeries such as liposuction, patients can achieve optimal body contouring results.

Tummy Tuck Surgery Options

In addition to a traditional tummy tuck procedure (full tummy tuck), there are other approaches to tummy tucks that may be more beneficial to particular patients:

  • Discreet incision under the bikini line and another around the navel. 
  • Creates a flat stomach with a reduction of the waist.
  • Tightens muscles in the abdomen.
  • Removes loose skin and stretch marks in the area.
  • Ideal for only some patients.
  • Shorter incision.
  • Helps remove some loose skin while tightening the muscles in the abdomen
  • Ideal for patients after massive weight loss.
  • Leg lift, arm lift, body lift

How is Tummy Tuck Surgery Performed?

Tummy tucks are performed in an AAAASF accredited facility under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. To begin, an incision is made from hip bone to hip bone across the lower abdomen. Through the incision, the abdominal skin is lifted. Excess skin and fat between the umbilicus and the pubic area are removed. Underneath the skin and fat is the muscular layer of the abdomen, or rectus abdominis, which consists of two narrow, straight muscle strips that will be sutured together and tightened if needed. The skin is then re-draped over the abdomen, and any excess skin is trimmed and sutured in place.

Tummy Tuck Surgery Combinations

Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck (Mommy Makeover)

Pregnancy can change a woman’s overall physique, especially her breasts. Following childbirth, most women experience a loss of breast volume. Women who have minimal sagging and would like to regain breast volume are ideal patients for breast augmentation. Mommy makeover surgery with Dr. Perez-Gurri is an ideal procedure many mothers have taken advantage of to remove unwanted signs of childbearing. The mommy makeover combines several plastic surgery procedures (tummy tuck, breast aug, breast lift, liposuction, etc.) into one treatment plan to help a woman revive her body and confidence after these changes.
