Miami Tummy Tuck

Persons with loose abdominal skin, flaccid abdominal muscles or excess fat in the lower abdomen may choose to undergo a Miami Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) to improve their abdominal appearance. The most common causes of loose, flaccid abdomens are multiple pregnancies or weight loss.

The Procedure

The incision is made in the lower abdominal crease just above the pubic area. The length of the incision will vary from patient to patient, however it is kept below the “bikini line.” A flap of abdominal skin and fat is elevated to the level of the ribs exposing the abdominal (rectus) muscles. The loose muscles are then stiched together tightly along the length of the abdomen. The excess skin and fat are then cut away and a fine plastic closure performed on the wound. Usually the patient’s original navel (belly button) is kept intact and brought out through a small incision in its original location.

An abdominal lipectomy is a type of tummy tuck performed on overweight patients. The incisions are usually longer than in an abdominoplasty but the technical aspects of the operation are very similar to an abdominoplasty.


In certain patients it may be advantageous to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction in order to obtain the most aesthetically pleasing shape for the torso. In many cases this is a more complete contouring procedure for the torso.
