Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck

As a leading tummy tuck surgeon, Dr. Eshbaugh takes pride in helping abdominoplasty patients with their body enhancement needs.

The abdomen is one of the most conspicuous parts of the body. It is nearly impossible to cover up a large protruding belly. Furthermore, few areas of the body are more difficult to find clothes that fit properly than the tummy area.

That is why people in Naples, Fort Myers and all across southwest Florida are coming to Florida Body Plastic Surgery for a tummy tuck. More properly known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is the best operation available to reduce oversized bellies. It is best suited for people with an excess of skin and fat, and who can use tightening of their abdominal muscles to reduce bulging.

The abdominoplasty operation involves removing the excess tissue through an incision that can often be hidden beneath the bathing suit or bikini line.The underlying muscle is tightened to reduce bulging (making this a great choice for women stretched out from childbearing), and the sides are often suctioned of excess fat. The tummy tuck operation can take up to three hours, and recovery is from two to six weeks.


Variations of tummy tuck exist for special cases. Patients with just a bit of extra tissue under the belly button can benefit from a mini-abdominoplasty which uses liposuction and skin removal through a smaller incision. Patients with a lot of fat extending around their sides to their back benefit from a belt lipectomy which carries the incision all the way around the back to get that tissue out as well.

Dr. Eshbaugh has fine-tuned the abdominoplasty technique through years of experience. He has written in books and medical journals on the subject, and is nationally published.

Let Dr. Eshbaugh help guide you in your decision regarding which operation is best for your particular situation.
