What is a Tummy Tuck?

For adults, hanging skin and excess fat in the abdomen can be frustrating and hard to get rid of. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging are the most common reasons why an individual may not be able to attain a tighter and slimmer tummy. Skin tightening of the abdomen is a cosmetic treatment that reshapes the abdominal region, producing attractive results for patients. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin perform abdominoplasty using techniques that vary, depending on the condition of the abdomen. This cosmetic treatment at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL allows patients the opportunity to have a slimmer, tighter tummy and renewed confidence.

What Are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck can be a wonderful surgery for patients in the Jacksonville, FL area who wish to eradicate belly fat, acquire a more toned appearance, and improve their fitness. This procedure done at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates allows for a number of these perks:

  • Eradicates extra fat and skin from the stomach
  • Strengthens the muscles in the abdomen
  • Provides you with a more slender appearance
  • Improves spine support, stability, and flexibility

  • Could correct hernia symptoms and incontinence
  • Strengthens the whole core
  • Helps individuals to get closer to an optimal weight

Am I A Candidate for A Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery can be offered to both women and men. If you battle sagging skin as well as excess fat in the abdominal region, this surgical treatment can help restore a slimming and more toned silhouette. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin advise you to be at a normal weight before undergoing this treatment. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss — it surgically corrects loose skin. A form of liposuction is generally implemented during surgery to target fat. If your abdominal area has healthy skin laxity, but you still are not satisfied with how your tummy looks and feels even on a healthy diet, you could consider liposuction. Women interested in abdominoplasty should be past childbearing to make sure the surgical outcomes are not compromised.


Abdominoplasty can be offered to both men and women. If you find yourself upset over loose or wrinkly skin in addition to excess fat on the stomach, this body contouring procedure can help produce a tighter and slimmer figure. There are several methods to consider when the surgery is performed. For starters, the incision type is determined based on the quantity of excess skin. Some patients with extensive sagging skin might benefit best from a full tummy tuck. A full or extended tummy tuck makes the incision from hip bone to hip bone, just on top of the pubic zone. Some individuals who are concerned with minimal skin wrinkling may be better candidates for a less invasive technique. Men and women who receive this treatment still benefit from tummy tuck surgery but will simply have a smaller scar.

Tummy Tuck FAQ

How much does a tummy tuck cost?
During your consult, Dr. Caplin or Dr. Nuveen will create your unique treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals before estimating costs. They will be able to better estimate your costs as soon as the type of abdominoplasty is decided, what technique will be used, which anesthesia is needed, and other factors. To ensure you get high-quality results from a skilled plastic surgeon, Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates helps to make your tummy tuck easy to afford by accepting several payment methods and helping you find low-interest financing.  You can also check out our procedure pricing and online consultation options under the consultations tab for a price approximation.

What type of tummy tuck should I get?
You will probably get one of the three main techniques for abdominoplasty: full, mini, and extended. In your consultation, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will ask about your needs and goals before performing a physical exam. Then, they can better decide the technique that will give you the best results. A full abdominoplasty is good if you want to fix loose skin in the lower and upper abdomen, while a mini abdominoplasty is better if you only have issues under your belly button, like a "pooch." An extended tummy tuck can improve the abdomen as well as the upper thighs and hips.

How will my scars appear?
Incisions for your tummy tuck will vary based on which type you are getting. For all tummy tucks, Dr. Caplin and Dr. Nuveen use the thinnest incisions possible to limit scars. They also place incisions in less visible areas (through the belly button or in the public region) so they can be concealed by a swimsuit or underwear. After your tummy tuck, it's important to follow your scar care instructions — so your sutures heal flat and blend into your natural skin.  Dr. Caplin and Dr. Nuveen will also give detailed instructions on how to best take care of your incisions to minimize scarring. 

Can I get pregnant after a tummy tuck?
While you can get pregnant following an abdominoplasty, it will likely affect your results. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin recommend that you be finished with planned pregnancies and childbirth before you consider an abdominoplasty. If you become pregnant following a tummy tuck, another surgery may be performed to refresh your results.

Can I get a tummy tuck with another surgery?
A lot of patients get a second body surgery with a tummy tuck to see more dramatic improvements. During your consultation with Dr. Caplin or Dr. Nuveen, talk to them about your desires so a comprehensive treatment plan may be developed that matches your goals. You may combine a tummy tuck with a thigh lift for a lower body lift or other areas for all-over body contouring. If you are trying to rejuvenate your whole body after having children or losing a significant amount of weight, you might be a good candidate for a mommy makeover or after weight loss surgery.
