Tummy TuckTummy tuck surgery is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the abdominal area and also tighten the muscles to result in a smoother and trimmer mid-section. Now, plastic surgeons in NYC are offering an even more advanced treatment – Brazilian tummy tuck surgery. Let’s see how this innovative procedure is different from the conventional one.

Many men and women looking to achieve a flat, well-toned abdominal profile often find that diet and exercise do not provide the desired results. Tummy tuck surgery could be a good option for them. It is recommended for individuals who are close to their normal body weight, but have a protruding and sagging tummy. The typical reasons for this condition are aging, genetic factors, pregnancy, prior surgery and significant changes in weight.

Brazilian tummy tuck is different from this conventional procedure in that it also liposuction of the upper part of the abdomen. This procedure can provide superior waist contouring outcomes for patients who have large amounts of loose skin and fat in the abdominal area, such as caused by multiple pregnancies. For such patients, this superior surgical technique can restore a smaller waist and well-shaped abdominal appearance that a traditional tummy tuck cannot provide.The incision will usually be placed so that it will be inconspicuous when wearing a bikini. Here are the key changes that the Brazilian tummy tuck brings about:

  • Removes excess fat and skin and firms the abdominal muscles, resulting in a smaller looking waist
  • Pulls up the pubic area which may have dropped due to aging or pregnancy
  • Liposuction is performed using tiny incisions and a small cannula, resulting in a flatter, trimmer abdomen
  • Liposuction also reshapes the waist with attractive results

The treatment can reduce and even eliminate bouts of urinary incontinence that may occur after pregnancy.

It is crucial that the surgery is performed by a surgeon with expertise in this specific technique. The right surgeon will evaluate your considerations and goals, and determine if you are the right candidate for a Brazilian tummy tuck. Recovery time varies among patients and will depend on individual circumstances and the extent of the surgery. Most patients return to work in about 2 weeks, but are generally advised to avoid strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 2-3 months.
