Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery

One of the most popular body contouring plastic surgery procedures is abdominoplasty, referred to as the “tummy tuck.” This procedure is used to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen, tightening and flattening the stomach after pregnancy or weight loss. If you are interested in creating a firmer abdomen, HMS Plastic Surgery performs tummy tuck plastic surgery at our clinic in Miami, FL.

Abdominoplasty comes in many forms, from a mini tummy tuck to a more extensive panniculectomy. The procedure used to remove skin and fat from the abdomen depends on the amount of skin and tissue that needs to be removed. Each of our abdominoplasty patients at HMS Plastic Surgery receives a personalized approach to create the flat, firm stomach they desire.

Mini Tummy Tuck

For patients that only have a small amount of excess skin or fat, a mini tummy tuck can be performed. This requires a smaller incision that can be discreetly hidden below the bikini line. This is a popular procedure for women after pregnancy, restoring the pre-pregnancy stomach.

Standard Abdominoplasty

To remove excess skin and fat while tightening the abdomen structure, a standard abdominoplasty may be required. Each patient receives a customized procedure to achieve the desired outcome. This may include liposuction and muscle repair. Incisions are longer than the mini version but still can be hidden below the bikini line.


For those with extensive amounts of sagging skin and tissue around the lower abdomen, a panniculectomy may be needed. This involves a larger incision from hip bone to hip bone to remove large “aprons” of stretched skin. Most patients requiring this procedure have achieved massive weight loss and need plastic surgery to remove the leftover skin. While the incision is longer, this procedure can transform the abdomen and provide improved form and function for the patient.

If you have sagging skin and fatty tissue around your midsection, abdominoplasty may be the perfect body contouring procedure for you. HMS Plastic Surgery offers multiple types of tummy tuck surgery options for both men and women.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
