Tummy Tuck

There are times when improving your body contours requires more than diet and exercise. Pregnancy and significant weight loss can make the skin and muscles of the abdomen stretch to the point where surgery is the only way to get them smooth and firm again. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Pope performs abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, in Orlando, FL, to give women and men a rejuvenated midsection and the confidence to show off their waist again.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a surgical body contouring procedure that improves the appearance of the midsection by reducing loose skin and tightening weakened abdominal muscles. With this procedure, Dr. Pope can provide a variety of improvements, which commonly include:

  • Reducing loose, sagging skin from the abdomen
  • Flattening a protruding belly caused by stretched and separated ab muscles
  • Reshaping a stretched or enlarged belly button
  • Removing pockets of fat from the abdomen and waist
  • Getting rid of stretch marks on the lower abdomen

Most mommy makeover patients combine tummy tuck surgery with breast procedures such as breast augmentation or a breast lift. Dr. Pope may perform a tummy tuck as part of a body lift for post-bariatric surgery patients.

I have been seeking for a plastic surgeon for about 2 months to help me to gain my confidence back and fix an issue from previous Liposuction. However I blame myself because I let myself go and gain over 45 pounds. grateful to my job I was able to travel to few places to find the plastic surgeon I was in California, Boston, Melbourne, Miami, and Orlando. All were very professional and knowledgeable. But I still was not sure cuz my previous lipo experience. My brother mentioned Dr. Pope ; so I set up a consultation , I have to say this from the 1st day his office team were professional, passionate, and Kind. The practice manager & surgery coordinator Lisa Sanzone Amazing lady, after few questions ; I meet Dr. Pope I explain my concerns and goals. Dr. Pope explain clearly the risk and advantages of my desire cosmetic surgery but once thing when you always looking for plastic surgeon is Honesty. Dr. Pope is extremely professional, experience, Knowledgeable but here is the main factor for my decision to choose him ; Dr. Pope is super HONEST, PASSIONATE AND KIND. I have been fortunate to meet many plastic surgeons before but He's by far the most kind. He listen, acknowledge your goals and concerns. 2 weeks ago 11/24/2020 I had Tummy tuck and liposuction. I'm beyond grateful to him, his medical and office, team everyone has the same high of level customer service but they all have kindness and that is very hard to find. I'm still recovering but it has been easy recover I was able to walk from the 2nd day Dr. Pope have been in each step of my recovery there. His anesthesiologist and the nurse surgery beyond my expectations. I'm so grateful to the overnight nurse in the medical center she went beyond and more for that I'll be always grateful to her. Sorry, I can go more and more how amazing Dr. Pope and his team but truly believe me. Thank you Dr. Pope, Lisa, the nurse in his office for their care and kindness all his team; you guys have left in me a remarkable impression. Happy Holidays I have become a loyal client.

Dr Pope is by far the most qualified and best surgeon (in not just Florida) but my opinion in the country. If you need surgery or you simply desire elective surgery there is no one I would trust more than Dr Pope. His nurses and staff are truly helpful and always there for you as well as Dr Pope! Questions and insecurities come with surgery and I was always given full attention and informed immediately. His work is remarkable and the BEST!!! In my opinion I give Dr Pope a 5 star rating as I have never experienced or witnessed such beautiful work and the best professional care! Forever GRATEFUL!

I love Dr pope he takes his time with you, listens and knows what he is talking about. He fixed my stomach where another Dr left hanging skin and did my eyelids, made a big difference. My daughter loves her breast augmentation. His staff is the best and Giuliana the facial girl is always so sweet and does the best facial. I look and feel so much better about myself since I’ve been going there. The facials made a big difference and others notice

I went to Dr. Pope around my 21st birthday after living with gynecomastia my whole life and was so embarrassed and self conscious about it that I never went outside without a shirt on, never went swimming and couldn't enjoy life. Dr. Pope did a amazing job with me and couldn't be more happier and so glad I went with Dr. Pope as my surgeon. I can finally go out and enjoy life due to Dr. Pope and his staff. Thank you very much Dr. Pope!

About a year ago I was involved in a pretty terrible motor vehicle accident and subsequently was sent to the emergency room. After I was stabilized and pretty much entirely conscious I was almost immediately faced with a big decision as to how I wanted to proceed my treatment. On one hand there was the ER doctor who seemed almost eager to have me up and out and was offering to stitch up my wounds, and on the other hand I had the opportunity to be treated by Dr Pope who was on call. After hearing that the ER doctor intended to remove some of my damaged skin I decided to wait for Dr Pope to see what his plan of action would be. Needless to say I made the right choice as Dr Pope not only saved all of my skin but significantly reduced the size of my inevitable scar in doing so. I continued treatment with Dr Pope and today can not be more happy I did as my scar is almost entirely unnoticeable and being that it is on my forehead I am forever grateful for his expertise and precision.

Phenomenal surgeon! I had gynecomastia since I was twelve and never took my shirt of in public. Even though I was in great shape, it still was bothersome for years. I had this done last year with Dr. Pope and he did a wonderful job. The staff members were very welcoming and answered all my questions. The general anesthesia made me feel comfortable and relaxed and I'm glad I choose that then localized. No complications, no infections and my chest looks so much better now. I went to the beach last weekend and felt great. I feel motivated to lift weights again now that my pecs can look like actual pecs. Any male that needs this procedure, see Dr. Pope! You won't regret your decision. The only regret I had was not getting this done sooner.

Dr Pope is professonial and a true artist. The office is very clean, well organized and supremely efficient in it's nature. My wife recently had a procedure done through the office and from start to finish she was treated very well with incredibly compassionate concern and care. I admire the way the Dr is sincerely invested in his patient as well as his candor and honesty. I believe that he is sincere and operates with integerity in his evaluations as well as his suggestions regarding the procedure my wife had done. The support staff is helpful, professional, and also operate with great integerity. I spent some time on the phone recently with his office manager, Dana as a follow up and we had a very nice conversation...which was what reminded me to get on here and review their business! Thank you for your awesome care and work Dr Pope and everyone else in the office! My wife, when she began looking for a surgeon, had planned to talk to 3 total offices before making her decision. She talked to Dr Pope and his office first and didn't bother going anywhere else...and that says it all.

How Is Abdominoplasty Performed?

Dr. Pope performs abdominoplasty as an outpatient procedure in a private, AAAASF-certified surgical center located in the same building as his Orlando office. Anesthesia is administered under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Pope will personalize one of the following procedures to the patient’s individual needs and concerns.

Complete Tummy Tuck

Also called a traditional tummy tuck, this technique is best suited to the majority of patients, involves an incision that spans between the hip bones placed just above the pubic bone where it can be covered by underwear and swimsuits. A second incision is placed within the belly button to release it from the outer skin. Next, the abdominal skin is separated from the abdominal wall, abdominal muscles are brought together along the midline if necessary, the outer skin is smoothed down, and the excess skin is trimmed away. Additionally, an opening is created in the outer skin, and the belly button is pushed through the opening (much like inserting a button into a buttonhole) and then is sutured in place.

Mini Tummy Tuck

This less-invasive variation of the complete tummy tuck addresses lax abdominal skin from the belly button to the pubic bone with a shorter incision.

Extended Tummy Tuck

This option, often used for body contouring after significant weight loss, combines a complete tummy tuck with skin tightening all the way around the abdomen.

Is a Tummy Tuck Safe? 

Any surgery comes with potential risks and rewards, and tummy tucks are no exception. Potential issues include infection, bleeding, or complications from anesthesia. However, these risks are low, and tummy tuck surgery is generally a very safe procedure. Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for the safest, highest-quality results.

How Painful Is a Tummy Tuck Recovery?

Dr. Pope completes each tummy tuck with the application of Exparel®, a long-lasting pain control medication, into the surgical area. Pain is usually not significant because the effects of Exparel usually last about 3 days, covering the initial, most uncomfortable period.

What Can I Expect After a Tummy Tuck?

If you have a tummy tuck on its own, you will likely return home the day of your surgery. While it will be difficult and uncomfortable to stand completely upright at first, it is very important to stand and walk around slowly as soon as possible to help the healing process and prevent complications. You may lose sensitivity in your abdominal area for the first several months, but this side effect is usually temporary.

How Long Is Recovery From a Tummy Tuck?

Expect to return to normal daily activities, including work if your job is not strenuous, within 2 weeks and full activity within 6 weeks.

Will Tummy Tuck Scars Go Away? 

Tummy tuck scars are usually low enough to be well hidden under the bikini line and will typically fade and flatten over time. Most patients are happy with the trade-off and enjoy their new, smoother, flatter tummy.

Does a Tummy Tuck Remove Stretch Marks? 

While some stretch marks can be removed, this is possible only in the areas where skin is removed during the procedure. During your tummy tuck consultation, Dr. Pope will analyze your body structure and let you know if stretch mark removal is possible during your surgery.

How Long Will It Take To See My Final Tummy Tuck Results?

While you can expect your abdominal area to be noticeably slimmer and flatter right away, it usually takes a few months for swelling to go away and reveal the final results. At this time you should enjoy full sensitivity and comfort in your abdomen, and you’ll notice the scars from the incisions beginning to fade.

What If I Get Pregnant After My Tummy Tuck? 

Many women continue to enjoy the results of their tummy tuck, even after having more children. However, during pregnancy, the baby’s presence may put pressure on the abdominal wall and affect your tummy tuck results. We advise most patients to wait until they are finished having children before undergoing tummy tuck surgery. 

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of a tummy tuck in the Orlando area varies depending on factors such as the type of tummy tuck performed (complete, mini, or extended) and whether additional procedures are included. After your consultation, you will receive a personalized quote that includes all fees and covers routine pre- and post-op care for a full year. Pope Plastic Surgery is proud to offer financing with CareCredit® to help make the procedure even more affordable.
