Am I a Tummy Tuck Candidate?
Both men and women can be candidates for a tummy tuck. Two of the most common reasons why patients visit our Tampa plastic surgery office for abdominoplasty are weight loss and pregnancy.
If you are unhappy with excess skin or fat, or if you want tighter abdominal muscles, you may be a good candidate — but you'll have to talk with our surgeon to know for sure.
To be eligible, you'll need to be within 10 to 15 pounds of your target weight. You'll also need to refrain from smoking and drinking, as well as live a generally healthy lifestyle.

Get to Know Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Before Your Tummy Tuck Consultation
Dr. Jaime Perez has a unique distinction–he is double board-certified. We're proud to say that he has earned board certification from two different organizations: the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, meaning he is both a board-certified surgeon and a board-certified plastic surgeon.
By earning these distinctions, he has had to successfully complete training a regular plastic surgeon hasn't, like an accredited program. All his hard work culminated in an extremely rigorous testing process from the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which he needed to pass in order to receive his certification.

Choose From Three Different Tummy Tucks At Our Tampa Practice
Each treatment performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon is completely tailored to you. We feature:
Mini Tummy Tucks
As the name suggests, mini tummy tucks are used for simpler cases. It covers a smaller area (the lower abdomen). Unlike other types of tummy tuck, it will not involve reattaching the muscles in your abdominal wall.
Standard Tummy Tuck
Concerned with loose skin, excess fat, and separated abdominal muscles? Dr. Perez can address all these concerns using a standard tummy tuck. The results will be completely discreet, due to the positioning of the scar and the experience of our surgeon.
Extended Tummy Tuck
If you have more abdominal skin or fat that you want to lose, you may be a great candidate for an extended tummy tuck. This comprehensive option covers all that a standard tummy tuck does, with some extra treatment areas: your lower back and the sides of your abdomen.
What Is It Like Having a Tummy Tuck?
Dr. Perez uses techniques like leaving the fascia intact and preserving the lymphatic system for a safer overall procedure.

How Much Does Abdominoplasty Cost?

Other additional costs, like your hotel stay and travel, will also contribute to the price. We're happy to provide an accurate estimate for your unique procedure during your consultation.

Liposuction is typically paired with abdominoplasty for the most substantial results. Our surgeon stands out from others in the Tampa and Hillsborough County area by including liposuction in the price of all tummy tucks.
