Tummy Tuck Surgery in Broward County and West Palm Beach Florida

tummy tuck benefits

The procedure called a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a very effective procedure for contouring the abdomen. It is particularly helpful for restoring the abdomen after the changes caused by pregnancy and/or changes caused by weight loss or gain. It allows Fargo plastic surgeon Dr. Sampson to remove the excess skin and fatty tissue of the abdomen.

Surgical Techniques

The abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a technique that removes the excess skin and fatty tissue of the abdomen under general anesthesia. At the same time, Dr. Sampson is able to tighten the muscles of the abdomen so the excess skin is improved and a flatter and more attractive abdomen is produced.


The main result of the tummy tuck procedure is a considerably more attractive abdomen without excess skin and a significantly flatter appearing abdomen.

There are types of tummy tucks that include liposuction that may limit the amount of tissue excised. However, these techniques are individualized for each patient. Dr. Sampson will discuss the surgical alternatives with each patient.

Possible Complications

Complications for tummy tucks are quite limited. The main contraindication to the procedure is active use of tobacco products. This is associated with significant problems. Other complications including hematomas, (blood under the skin) and seromas (clear fluid under the skin) and are very rare. Call Dr. Sampson so he can discuss the details of this procedure with you today.

Time Off Work

Dr. Sampson recommends a time of two weeks off work and a total of 4 weeks without heavy lifting. Some patients may be able to return to work sooner. So the time off work is individualized for each patient. Call today for your appointment for a tummy tuck in Broward County and West Palm Beach Florida.
