If you are carrying extra pounds on your waist that seem resistant to diet and exercise, you are not alone. The good news is that there are several procedures to target this area of the body, and Dr. Jiles is here to help you decide which is right for you to address your specific problems.
Dr. Jiles of Sarasota Surgical Arts is a talented cosmetic surgeon with fellowship training in mini tummy tucks as well as many other procedures. Dr. Jiles offers mini tummy tuck surgery in Sarasota, Fl.
Women seeking a mini tummy tuck have one or more of the following complaints:
Ideal candidates are not smokers, or are able to stop all nicotine products and vaping for 1 month prior and 1 month after the surgery. This is important for wound healing. In general, good candidates for elective surgery do not have uncontrolled medical conditions, and their BMI is ideally under 35. These things do not necessarily exclude you from having a surgery with Dr. Jiles. If these areas are a concern, be sure to ask Dr. Jiles and she will make arrangements to best have your needs met to make the surgery as safe as possible.
You will have your consultation with Dr. Jiles at Sarasota Surgical Arts, where she will get your detailed medical history and do an exam of your abdomen.
Anticipate approximately 2 weeks off from work following the procedure to optimize the comfort of your recovery. The worst phase of your post operative pain will subside after the first few days. You will likely have a drain that will be removed by about 2 weeks after the surgery. Plan to not drive the first week or for the remainder of time that you are taking pain medication.
You will immediately notice the difference in your shape after the surgery. There will be significant swelling and bruising of the areas treated with liposuction for up to 2 weeks. After that the swelling subsides and continues to gradually go away until the final healing which occurs between 3 to 6 months for most patients. The incision will gradually become a thin line, that will be hidden below the waist of panties or a bathing suit bottom.
Dr. Jiles is a skilled cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in Posterior Body Lift surgery. With skill, and a perfectionist eye she will help you achieve the shape of your dreams.
