First

Before & After Tummy Tucks

In Bradenton and Sarasota, abdominoplasty, more commonly as a Tummy Tuck, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Dr. Lacerna in Sarasota & Bradenton has the procedure that can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.

If you are considering a Tummy Tuck, Dr. Lacerna will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. How and when it can help, how it is performed, and what results you can expect. Please ask Dr. Lacerna about anything you don’t understand.

The Best Candidates for Tummy Tucks

The best candidates for abdominoplasty are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved.

Planning Your Tummy Tuck

In your initial consultation, Dr. Lacerna will evaluate your health, determine the extent of fat deposits in your abdominal region, and carefully assess your skin tone. Be sure to tell her if you smoke, and if you’re taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs. Be frank in discussing your expectations with Dr. Lacerna. She should be equally frank with you, describing your alternatives and the risks and limitations of each.

I believe that a sense of well-being stems from feeling good, looking good, and having meaning and accomplishment in your life.
