Achieved With Tummy Tuck Surgery

Excess skin can be the results of weight loss, pregnancy, and/or aging. Once your skin has lost its elasticity, it is almost impossible to restore it through exercise. An accumulation of abdominal skin may cause you to appear frumpy and may prevent your clothing from fitting comfortably. Trimming away excess skin will highlight and reveal your toned abdominal contour.

The Procedures
Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

  • Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles
  • A fine incision is created along the lower abdomen
  • Through this incision, the rectus muscles are pulled and sutured together, creating a more toned appearance
  • Excess skin is trimmed away
  • The remaining tissue is draped to highlight your new abdominal contour
  • Your incisions are closed, and drains are placed


  • Liposuction is used to remove excess fat and enhance the definition of the abdomen
  • Small incisions are placed in easily concealed locations along the abdomen
  • A cannula is inserted into these incisions, which suctions out unwanted fat
  • The fat is removed in even layers, creating definition for custom results that highlight your body’s contours
Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

You will experience bruising and swelling following your surgery. Drains and an abdominal binder are used to minimize swelling and prevent the development of a seroma. Dr. Baker will personally see you the day following your surgery to ensure you are healing properly. After one week, you will need to wear a compression garment in addition to the binder.

Most Miami patients can return to work after one week but will need to limit physical activities for three to four weeks following the procedure. Most patients can resume their regular exercise routine after four weeks with Dr. Baker’s permission. After six weeks, most major swelling should subside and the final results will become visible.
