A tummy tuck can restore firm, youthful-looking contours to your midsection using non-surgical techniques. Non-surgical tummy tuck has no significant downtime or recovery. Patients can remove stubborn belly fat with Aqualipo®, SmartLipo™, or Lipo 360 and tighten loose abdominal skin with BodyTite™ or SmartLipo™ for natural-looking results. Body By Bassin offers these innovative alternatives to traditional tummy tuck surgery at each of our Florida offices.
Traditional tummy tuck surgery requires extensive incisions and stitches across the midsection. Abdominoplasty patients require weeks of downtime following treatment and may not resume daily activities for a few months. Dr. Bassin offers less invasive tummy tuck options to achieve natural-looking results with less extensive recovery. Learn more about your non-surgical abdominoplasty options below.

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty addresses lax skin, as well as stretched abdominal muscles. Your tummy tuck surgeon will make incisions around the abdomen and carefully reposition, redrape, and remove hanging or sagging skin. Your underlying stomach muscles can also be tightened to restore a flatter, more natural look. Abdominoplasty surgery results in weeks of healing time before you can resume your daily routine.
Patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight that has resulted in stretched abdominal skin are usually candidates for a tummy tuck. Pregnancy can also lead to weakened or stretch muscles. As a result, patients who have given birth may be ideal candidates for abdominoplasty surgery.
The tummy tuck was once the only body contouring method for achieving a firmer, more toned abdomen. Now, Body By Bassin is proud to provide less invasive tummy tuck techniques that can achieve natural-looking results with minimal downtime.
The BodyTite™ tummy tuck can tighten the midsection for a slimmer waistline! The abdomen is one of the most notorious problem areas for patients. Over time, skin around the stomach may begin to sag and lose firmness, leading to unwanted bulging. BodyTite™ technology can achieve substantial results with minimal recovery time. Dr. Bassin uses BodyTite™ for tummy tuck to firm and shape the abdomen, sending radio frequency energy to areas of loose skin. BodyTite™ tightens skin and remodels collagen to enhance skin structure.
The BodyTite™ tummy tuck is designed to firm loose abdominal skin without significant downtime, as opposed to traditional abdominoplasty surgery, which can require weeks of recovery. Since BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive tummy tuck, there is less procedure time involved. Body By Bassin can help you achieve a tighter-looking midsection using BodyTite™ radio frequency treatment.
Lipo 360 can achieve a firmer, more defined abdomen without the need for invasive surgery. This innovative liposuction procedure is minimally invasive and can remove stubborn fat from the entire waistline – 360 degrees around. Lipo 360 can target the abdomen, obliques, flanks, sides, and mid-to-lower back to remove unwanted fat and reduce love handles. By treating all of these areas in one procedure, Lipo 360 effectively slims and shapes your waist for a more youthful-looking you.
Lipo 360 does not require lengthy stitches. Instead, tiny incisions are made in order to introduce the Lipo 360 cannula beneath the skin. Lipo 360 patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few days. If you would like to achieve a flatter, firmer midsection and waistline, then Lipo 360 may be right for you.
Remove stubborn belly fat and enhance definition with Aqualipo®. This water-jet liposuction procedure targets small pockets of exercise or diet-resistant fat around the midsection. Aqualipo® selectively removes excess fat cells without causing harm to other tissues. A stream of water gently dislodges fat cells from surrounding tissues; these fat cells are then extracted from the abdomen using a specialized cannula. The result is a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
Unlike traditional tummy tuck surgery or liposuction, Aqualipo® can be completed without extensive bruising, swelling, or procedure time. The gentleness of Aqualipo® water assisted liposuction allows for quicker, more efficient fat removal. Patients can target all areas of the abdominals, including the flanks, for symmetrical results.
SmartLipo™ can achieve non-surgical tummy tuck results by removing stomach fat and firming skin using laser technology. Unlike other forms of body sculpting, SmartLipo™ achieves two procedure goals in one: skin tightening and fat removal. Dr. Bassin performs SmartLipo™ at his Florida plastic surgery offices to contour the abdomen and achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results.
During treatment, the SmartLipo™ cannula is inserted beneath your skin. The cannula emits laser energy, which melts excess fat cells. Liquefied fat is then removed from your body. Heat from the SmartLipo™ laser also produces a skin tightening effect. SmartLipo™ stimulates collagen fibers found in the deep dermis to reinforce skin structure and enhance skin texture. There is minimal bruising, swelling, and healing time following SmartLipo™ treatment, as opposed to a surgical tummy tuck, which requires weeks of recovery.
The non-surgical tummy tuck options offered at Body By Bassin are very different from a traditional tummy tuck. Non-surgical abdominoplasty does not require lengthy incisions or sutures across the abdomen; instead, a small incision is used to place a specialized probe or cannula underneath the skin. This device encourages skin tightening and removes fat to enhance abdominal contours. Non-surgical tummy tuck techniques are typically performed using a local anesthetic, unlike abdominoplasty surgery, which usually requires general anesthesia.
