About Tummy Tucks
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that gives you a tighter and smoother abdomen. If you are having trouble getting rid of excess belly fat despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, a tummy tuck may help you achieve the body you desire. A tummy tuck can also be used to tighten loose skin and add contour to the midsection of the body. You may need a full abdominoplasty to get your best results. If you only have trouble in your lower stomach or you have a "pooch," a mini or modified tummy tuck may be all you need. During your consultation, we will discuss your body concerns and what you hope to achieve from tummy tuck surgery before creating your best treatment plan.
Our plastic surgeons at Inspire Aesthetics in Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach, FL provide many patients each year with tummy tuck procedures. This popular cosmetic surgery will slim a tummy with stubborn fatty deposits and redundant skin that won't bounce back after weight loss. Men and women alike seek modifications to their abdomen fat and skin.
- A partial abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck: This technique is selected if the amount of loose skin is minimal and the excess fat deposits are located below the navel. A short horizontal incision is all that is necessary for a partial tuck.
- Endoscopic abdominoplasty: This surgical technique minimizes scars and may be useful when patients have only a mild degree of excess fat and muscle laxity in the abdominal area.
- A circumferential tummy tuck: If you have lost a significant amount of weight and fat (usually after gastric bypass surgery), you may have loose, overhanging skin all around the body. In order to create a nice contour, our plastic surgeons can extend the scar all around the waistline to lift the outer thigh and buttocks for a smoother look with the muscles tightened and create a new belly button.

"My Tummy Tuck Experience! It has been more than a year since my abdominoplastic procedure and I am loving my new figure! It is one of the best investment I have made in improving my appearance. This positive outcome I owe it to my surgeon, Dr. Schnitt, who not only did an amazing job on my figure but also the care and the way he made me feel from the consultation and all the way through my healing process. Knowing that I could reach him anytime, if I needed him, gave me a sense of security and a peace of mind. I always have been a person who doesn't like to depend on others. I like to do everything on my own. For example, I do not ask anyone to take me to the airport, even if someone offers, I like to take Uber or a taxi. I also took an Uber when I had my Lasik eye surgery and my colonoscopy. I wanted to do the same thing when I had my Tummy Tuck, but Dr. Schnitt insisted that I need someone with me. Not only for my ride back home but also to watch over me during the recovery. I thought he was a little over protective, but I did as he indicated. Now I can tell you, he was 100% right, this procedure took every bit of self-control, independency, energy and pride out me. I was a total mess. I was not able to do anything on my own. I barely was able to walk with my curved posture. I couldn't laugh without feeling the pain in my abdominal muscles and having a Cuban man as partner didn't help, as he always is saying funny things. I was not able to cough either, but I discovered that if I had a little bottle of whisky me, I was able to immediately stop the urge to cough. I highly recommend the two weeks of recovery because I had hard time trying to hide the drain bulbs. If you are planning to go back to work before the drainers are out, think before the surgery what you are going to wear because you are not going to be able to go shopping. Finally, the compression garment, this is one of the most important thing to plan. I wish I would have known before my surgery to do this ahead of time. You are not going to be able to take it off or put it on without help. You are not going to be able to go shopping and buy another one that you could put on yourself. There so many out there. Almost all of them are uncomfortable and they do not fit as expected. I bought about 15 of them online trying to find one that would work for me. Keep in mind that every time you are trying one, it is painful, as these garments are very tight. My advice is, go before your surgery and try them on and buy a couple of them. It will save you money, time, and pain. Dr. Schnitt is a compassionate, knowledgeable, and competent surgeon. He will be there for you and he is the "Best Surgeon" ever! I cannot say enough about him, his office staff, and his impeccable surgical center. I highly recommend Inspire Cosmetic Surgery. Thank you, Dr. Schnitt for giving me another chance in life to feel good about my appearance! I am very, very thankful. Life is good!"- M.P. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2019
"I highly recommend this facility because it has an incredibly professional and friendly staff. Dr. Goodwin performed an abdominoplasty on me and I had a great outcome, even boosting up my confidence. All throughout my surgery, Dr. Goodwin and Kamy were very attentive towards all my concerns and Kelly, a nurse who was with me before my surgery, also made my experience very memorable."- K.C. / Google / Jun 19, 2019

Best Candidates for Tummy Tuck
The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are those in good health and who are at or near their desired weight. Tummy tuck surgery should not be used as a form of weight loss, but as a means to tone the midsection after having already met your weight loss goals. Good candidates for tummy tucks are men or women who experience:
- Excessive skin around the belly button.
- A weakened abdominal wall.
- Sagging or loosened skin on the abdomen.
What to Expect from your Tummy Tuck
During the procedure, the surgeon will usually make a horizontal incision, typically between the belly button and pubic area to remove excess fat and tissue from the abdomen. The fascia, tissue beneath the skin, will be tightened and should the belly button require moving, it will be brought out through a small incision and repositioned. Excess skin will also be removed and the incision along the pubic area will be stitched. The result of this procedure is a minor scar that falls along the bikini line for easy coverage. Patients can expect the procedure to take approximately 3 hours, depending on their aesthetic goals. We can perform out-patient scar revision surgeries in our AAAASF-approved surgical facility at Inspire Aesthetics.
Following abdominoplasty, there will be some swelling and bruising around the abdomen and belly button. For the first few days following the procedure, tubes may be used to drain the incision site of any blood and fluid. Some patients may be issued an antibiotic to help prevent infection. Patients will experience some abdominal pain, which is normal, and the swelling can take 6 weeks or more to subside. It is very important that patients are careful moving around following the first few months of surgery and they will need to schedule follow-up appointments at our office periodically for progress checks.
