What An Abdominoplasty Can Do For You
A tummy tuck can help our Fort Myers-area patients:
- Tighten loose abdominal muscles

A smooth, flat, tight stomach is an ideal toward which many people strive. And it's an important part of becoming happy with your overall appearance. Dr. Mandraccia understands that you want to look good while enjoying south Florida beaches, and he can help you do just that with an abdominoplasty.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
There are several different types of tummy tuck, and Dr. Mandraccia will determine which will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Your options include:
- Mini-tummy tuck: Another version of the procedure that is appropriate for relatively mild cases, the incision for the mini-tummy tuck is longer than that fo the endoscopic, but Full
- Tummy tuck: The full, traditional tummy tuck is appropriate if you have larger quantities of skin and tissue to remove and substantial muscle loosening. The incision involved is longer, going from hip to hip, and a second incision is made around your bully button. Dr. Mandraccia will repair the loosed abdominal muscles, then remove excess fat using liposuction.
Dr. Mandraccia will answer all of your tummy tuck questions before you move forward with the procedure. We have an on-site surgical facility that is certified by the Florida Board of Medicine, and our surgical team has been working together for 20 years. We'll help you achieve your flatter, tighter stomach in a safe environment. We'll also answer all of your questions about tummy tuck recovery.
Dr. Mandraccia performs most cosmetic surgery procedures under IV sedation with certified nurse anesthesia present. His office has recently been certified by the Florida Board of Health as meeting its most rigorous standards. Patients can opt for general anesthesia in the surgery center located in our building, which is jointly owned by Lee Memorial and Naples Community Hospitals.
