Okay so the summer has come and gone, we all know that, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want the perfect tummy, and that certainly doesn’t mean you don’t want to show it off. The off season in Florida isn’t nearly as busy as the summer, and there is still plenty of reason to go to the beach. After all, you’re going to find that it is far less populated, and with that being the case, it’s definitely going to be more fun for you. You and your friends will be able to hang out, tan on the beach, or even surf the waves if you so desire, and you’ll practically have the entire thing to yourself. Before you can do that, however, you need to make sure you look great, and the best way to achieve that is with a tummy tuck in Miami.
You’ve probably heard the term tummy tuck before and you probably have some idea of what it is, but to fill in the blanks, we’re going to discuss precisely what a tummy tuck is and a few of the different types. Yes! There are different types and they all cover varying purposes. Let’s take a look!
The Tummy Tuck
The first thing you need to know is that the tummy tuck is also known by the name ‘Abdominoplasty’ and is used to make the abdomen both thinner and more firm. Some of the key attributes of this surgery include the removal of excess skin fat from the abdomen and ultimately the tightening of the abdominal wall. In most cases, individuals who are seeking out this type of surgery will be doing so because their stomachs are sagging due to pregnancy or major weight loss.
The Complete Abdominoplasty
This is the most common form of ‘tummy tuck in Miami’ and it starts with an incision made from hip to hip, right above the pubic area. Another incision will release the navel from the hip, and then the skin is then tightened. In some cases liposuction will be used to sculpt the abdomen into an ideal shape. Additionally, a compression garment can be sued for the purpose of shaping to give you the look you want after you are brought down from the anesthesia.
This one is not quite as invasive as the former and it simply involves the skin and fat of the lower abdomen being vaguely detached. Once this is done, the skin is stretched downward with any excess removed. Once again, liposuction can be used to contour the area and form it into the correct shape.
While there are obviously several more types of tummy tucks or abdominoplasty out there, these are the most commonly used and the most widely known.
