Is Your Tummy Ready for Summer? Get Down to “Crunch Time” with a Tummy Tuck

Posted May 28, 2014 in Mommy Makeover, Tummy Tuck Surgery

Now that we have your attention, it does seem that summer is just around the corner. In some states like here in Florida, where Dr. Palladino and his team of plastic surgeons live and work, summer is already here!

If you are ashamed of the way you look in a bathing suit or bikini, fear not. The extra fat, love handles, stretch marks, loose skin or generally despicable feeling you have about your midsection is also something millions of people can relate to. You are not alone.

Dr. Humberto Palladino is offering tummy tucks just in time for the summer season. By the time you heal, beach weather and pool season will be upon us and you can fit into your favorite swimwear again. In fact, treat yourself to a brand new, slimmer swimsuit this year while getting rid of excess fat. You will love how you look in clothes and feel better all the way around. For many patients, getting a tummy tuck is like getting another chance on life again!

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves removing extra flab, skin and fat deposits around your bikini line. He uses a combination of techniques, including liposuction. The procedure is tailored for every individual, depending on the areas they wish to target. The incision is barely noticeable. Dr. Palladino is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is a master of his craft, recently having won a number of prestigious awards for his work. He makes his patients feel very comfortable and is skilled at what he does.

Tummy tucks are most often done as an outpatient procedure, which means it only takes a few hours to complete. However, the recovery time is approximately a week to ten days. This varies depending on the complexity of the procedure for each patient individually.

If you love exercising and going to the gym, then you may resume after a couple of weeks after the doctor gives you clearance to do so. It may take some longer to heal than others, especially in cases of people with a lot of fat to remove. If you do not have a lot of fat, then you may also be a good candidate for a “mini” tummy tuck, which describes minimal fat removal and tightening around the lower abdomen region.

Some women choose tummy tuck procedures as part of a Mommy Makeover, while men do it to improve their “spare tire” or love handles.

If you have any questions about whether getting a tummy tuck is right for you, feel free to call Dr. Humberto Palladio to get your questions asked promptly. Call us today at (866) 624-7874. We look forward to helping you to have a summer to remember with a tummy tuck surgery in your near future!
