Types of Tummy Tuck Procedures

A renowned board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Rotatori offers several popular tummy tuck procedures with great reviews depending on your specific needs, including:

  • Standard tummy tuck – Tightens all the abdominal wall skin and muscles, leaving behind a standard-sized scar.
  • Mini tummy tuck – Tightens the lower abdominal wall skin only and leaves a shorter scar.
  • Modified tummy tuck – Addresses conditions where just the muscle wall or just the abdominal skin requires repair.

Tummy Tuck Surgery vs. Liposuction

A tummy tuck procedure and liposuction are both body contouring plastic surgery procedures that help you address frustrating areas on your body that do not respond to traditional diet and exercise efforts. However, each procedure addresses a different concern.

Liposuction involves fat removal, while a tummy tuck removes and tightens excess or loose skin. Tummy tuck surgery may involve removing some body fat, but that’s not the main purpose of the procedure. That’s why some patients combine these two procedures to achieve the most comprehensive results. Dr. Rotatori will work with you to develop a customized procedure best suited for your needs and goals.

Recovery from a Tummy Tuck Procedure

Dr. Rotatori and his dedicated team perform your tummy tuck surgery in Orlando under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting. However, the tummy tuck procedure has a lengthy recovery process. Our staff will provide you with all the information you need to comfortably recover.

Here are some important details about what to expect with the tummy tuck recovery process:

  • The tummy tuck procedure requires an overnight stay in a hospital setting.
  • You will then go home with drains that we will remove in the office within one to two weeks.
  • We encourage you to move and walk regularly within one to two days.
  • It is also important that you stay hydrated following surgery.
  • Light activity becomes comfortable in 10 to 20 days, though sports activity will not be comfortable for about six weeks after surgery.

If you’re seeking effective body contouring results with no downtime, CoolSculpting Elite Orlando provides a safe, noninvasive treatment that permanently removes troublesome fat in unwanted places.
