"I have almost the very same story as Andrea: I lost a lot of weight on my own and was left with extra skin and fat, and detached muscles from childbirth. After interviewing several surgeons in Jax and St. Augustine I fell in love with Dr. Courtney Caplan. She is worth the drive up to Jax! The entire staff are fun and friendly on top of professional and knowledgeable. Their new office is posh, and sports a mascot- an adorable poodle named Ruby Rose."- C.E. / Google / Jun 28, 2023

HOW IS TUMMY TUCK SURGERY DONE?
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.
