A tummy tuck is one of the most effective options for achieving a smooth, flat stomach here in Orlando. While one of the most effective stomach flattening procedures, a tummy tuck is also one of the more invasive surgeries. In some cases, it might just demand too much from a patient’s body. There are various types of tummy tucks, however, and the key to ensuring you get the procedure that’s right for you starts with choosing the right surgeon.

Tummy Tuck Surgeon in Orlando

Abdominoplasty surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting the best tummy tuck surgeon in Orlando for your needs. A board-certified plastic surgeon you can trust, Dr. Scott Rotatori is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) with over 30 years of experience and education. He has performed hundreds of tummy tucks in Orlando on patients who are all extremely satisfied with their results.

Types of Tummy Tuck Surgery in Orlando

When considering a tummy tuck in Orlando, you have different options. For example, the option of a “mini” tummy tuck varies from that of a full tummy tuck. While seemingly a daunting choice, choosing between the two can actually be quite simple because they are appropriate for two distinctly different sets of patients.

Full Tummy Tuck in Orlando

A full tummy tuck is best for those with weakened abdominal muscles and a great deal of excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. The full tummy tuck procedure addresses these concerns both above and below your belly button and generally involves repositioning your belly button because of this. you may require two incisions instead of one during your full tummy tuck at our facility in Orlando, because the entire abdomen is addressed in order to best achieve the smoothest result.

Because a full abdominoplasty is more of a major surgery, recovery may take several weeks before normal activity can be resumed.

Mini Tummy Tuck in Orlando

On the other hand, a mini tummy tuck is best for those with small fat deposits and very minimal excess skin located primarily below the belly button. For mini tummy tucks, only a single small incision is required and is typically made where it will be easily concealed by clothing or a bathing suit. While the improvement that can be achieved with a mini tummy tuck is not as comprehensive as a full tummy tuck in Orlando, it requires less time in surgery and less recovery time afterwards.

Tummy Tuck Qualifications

Not everyone is eligible for the abdominoplasty surgery. Most tummy tuck patients are between 30-to-60 years old, but older patients interested in receiving a tummy tuck in Orlando face greater risks and may be advised against a tummy tuck surgery altogether. This is because an abdominoplasty is an invasive surgery, and in some cases, it might just be too demanding on the patient’s body. However, when tummy tuck expectations are realistic and a patient’s physical factors line up properly there is no reason that age alone should prevent someone from getting the type of tummy tuck they desire right here in Orlando.

Here are a few things our tummy tuck surgeon in Orlando expects of his patients before surgery can be considered an option:

  • A genuine desire to see this procedure improve their quality of life
  • Absence of diabetes or other conditions that could compromise the healing process (or require medications that could cause problems like blood clots)
  • Good respiratory health and tissue vascularity
  • Healthy exercise habits and excellent motility

If you’re looking for the best tummy tuck in Orlando, you’ve found it. At Orlando Plastic Surgery, we want our patients to be excited about the results of their tummy tuck as those with a strong desire to see their results heal more quickly. For both younger and older patients, a tummy tuck often means a chance to restore your body so you can start living your best life!
