Customized Tummy Tuck Surgery in Manhattan
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, offers a range of approaches tailored to the specific needs of each patient. The choice of technique largely depends on the extent of correction required and the individual’s unique anatomy.
Our surgeons are experienced in performing these abdominoplasty procedures:
- Full abdominoplasty: This comprehensive approach is ideal for individuals with significant excess skin, muscle laxity, and fat deposits in the entire abdominal area. During the full tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon makes a horizontal incision above the pubic area, typically extending from hip to hip. The abdominal muscles are tightened, excess skin is removed, and the belly button may be repositioned for a flatter and firmer abdomen.
- Mini abdominoplasty: Also known as a “mini tummy tuck,” this procedure is suitable for patients with localized concerns in the lower abdomen. It involves a shorter incision and is often chosen by those who have minimal excess skin and muscle separation below the navel. The surgeon focuses on improving the lower abdominal area, making it a less invasive option with a quicker recovery.
- High lateral tension abdominoplasty: This technique is a modification of the full abdominoplasty that places additional emphasis on tightening the muscles and skin of the flanks (sides) and upper hip region. It provides a more comprehensive contouring effect, making it a great choice for individuals looking to address love handles and achieve an enhanced waistline.
Each of these abdominoplasty procedures offers specific advantages and is tailored to individual patient needs.
The selection of the most suitable technique is typically determined during the consultation with our plastic surgeons. They will assess your aesthetic goals, physical condition, and the extent of correction required to achieve the desired results. Whether it’s a full, mini, or high lateral tension abdominoplasty, the goal is to help patients achieve a flatter, firmer, and more sculpted abdominal contour, ultimately boosting their self-confidence and overall well-being.
Tummy tuck surgery is also key element of the post-pregnancy makeover we offer. Based on patient needs, our surgeons can provide abdominoplasty in conjunction with abdominal liposuction in NYC to improve outcomes.
Am I the right candidate for the procedure?
An ideal candidate for typically includes individuals who:
- Have stubborn fat deposits in the abdominal region
- Have excess, drooping skin that persists post-pregnancy, substantial weight loss, or previous liposuction surgery
- Have weakened or stretched abdominal muscles resulting from age, genetic factors, pregnancy, or previous surgical procedures
Candidates should maintain a stable and healthy weight, be in overall good health, and maintain realistic expectations regarding the potential outcomes. Women considering tummy tuck surgery in Manhattan should ideally be done with childbearing, as future pregnancies can negatively impact the results.
Abdominoplasty and Fat Transfer
We also offer fat transfer along with tummy tuck surgery for women who want to improve the size and shape of the buttocks. The excess fat that is extracted from the abdomen is processed and transferred to the buttocks to provide the desired volume. This procedure, known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), is designed to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks. Unlike traditional buttock augmentation that uses implants, BBL uses your own body fat to enhance volume and shape, resulting in a more natural and harmonious appearance.
This fat grafting technique is ideal for women who want to avoid buttock implants. Our surgeons utilize advanced, minimally-invasive liposuction modalities which reduce surgical trauma. As your own body fat is used, risks of rejection are low.
Brazilian Tummy Tuck Procedure
Our surgeons also offer an innovative approach called the Brazilian tummy tuck which provides many additional benefits in terms of outcomes, efficiency, and downtime.
The combination of liposuction and skin removal enhances the overall body shape, providing a curvier and more youthful aesthetic. Incisions are positioned very low so that the scar remains hidden when you are wearing a bikini. This cosmetic surgical procedure also pulls the waist in and makes it smaller, improving the outcome. Moreover, as the pubic area is lifted, women benefit from fewer episodes of incontinence. You see the results with a downtime of just 10 days.
Recovery varies but usually involves some discomfort and swelling. Most patients can resume light activities within a few weeks, with full recovery over several months. Your surgeon will provide post-operative care guidelines.
Incisions are strategically placed and typically fade over time. Your surgeon will discuss incision placement and scar management during the consultation.
Absolutely. Abdominoplasty can be performed alongside liposuction, breast augmentation, or other cosmetic procedures for comprehensive results. Your surgeon will tailor a plan to your specific needs.
The results of a tummy tuck are long-lasting, but a healthy lifestyle is key. Pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations can impact the outcome. With proper care, benefits can be enjoyed for many years.
