How To Choose Your Surgeon For Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck Surgery

As a result of weight fluctuations, aging, or multiple pregnancies, many people begin to carry excess skin on their abdomen or struggle with diastasis recti which is a separation between the abdominal muscles and it can lead to a permanently bloated appearance.

While diet and exercise can help, oftentimes they are not enough to turn back the hands of time. If you struggle to shed stubborn weight in the abdomen or are bothered by the appearance of excess, loose skin resulting from significant weight loss, a tummy tuck may be right for you. However, before going forward with the procedure, it is important to take your time to select a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, as the outcome of your surgery will be greatly affected by your choice. The following factors should be considered when choosing your Miami tummy tuck surgeon.

Board Certified

The first step when narrowing down your options is ensuring that you select a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons (ABPS), as this designation indicates that they have undergone the rigorous training and testing necessary to safely deliver the results you desire and deal with complications should they occur. This also makes certain that your procedure will be performed in an accredited surgical facility. While some surgeons may advertise themselves as “board-certified,” only a surgeon who is certified by ABPS is a qualified, highly trained plastic surgeon.

Experienced With Tummy Tuck

During your initial consultation, it is advisable to ask your prospective surgeon how frequently they perform abdominoplasty. Choose a surgeon who regularly performs tummy tuck surgery, rather than a surgeon who focuses primarily on the face, breasts or other area. Ask them what their clients typically choose to undergo. Knowing that they consistently perform tummy tucks will give you the confidence that they are skilled in this area.

Examine Before & After Photos

Carefully examine the surgeon’s before and after photographs, paying attention to patients whose “before” bodies closely resemble your own, as this will help ensure that your surgeon has experience working with similar body types and that you will be satisfied with the outcome. Each surgeon has his or her own unique aesthetic sensibility, so it is imperative to select a surgeon whose results appeal to you. In addition, viewing numerous before and after photos will help you feel confident in the surgeon’s ability to deliver consistent results.

Go With Your Gut

Finally, it is important to select a plastic surgeon with whom you feel comfortable. From the minute you enter his or her office, your surgeon should make you feel at ease and quickly earn your trust. If at any time during your consultation you feel uncomfortable, it is best to listen to your gut.
