Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers tummy tucks to residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure meant to address excess fat, skin and other tissue in and around the parts of the abdomen that span from hip to hip and from the waist to the pubic bone. However, if you have unwanted fat and skin throughout your entire torso, you can also request a more extensive surgery to address other areas, including your low back and sides.
The tummy tuck procedure is ideal for people who struggle with bulges in their abdomen that fail to respond to regular exercise and a healthy diet. Many people opt to have this surgery because they have lost considerable amounts of weight, and as a result, they now have an excess of loose skin on their bodies. Furthermore, women who have had several children frequently undergo this surgery to resolve laxity in the skin, muscles and tendons.
Anesthesia will be used during tummy tuck surgery since Dr. Rubinstein creates an incision to re-position the navel, as well as one running from hip to hip to allow the removal of fat tissue. A tummy tuck takes around three hours, and this allows Dr. Rubinstein to use great care in removing unwanted tissue and properly suturing the incisions.
