A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty in Tampa, is a surgical procedure for women (or men) who have lost abdominal tone following pregnancy or significant weight loss.
Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?
A tummy tuck in Tampa can vary significantly from person to person. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for a tummy tuck is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Buchanan. However, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if:
- Your weight has been stable for a minimum of six months: once you’ve reached a consistent weight, this will give the surgeon a general idea of how much excess skin needs to be removed or tightened
- You are unhappy with the appearance of your midsection: you have loose skin or excess fat on your abdomen that you want removed and tightened
- You don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking entirely, or six weeks prior to your procedure at a minimum, as well as six weeks post-operation
