A leading plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York (NYC), bodySCULPT® offers customized Abdominoplasty (also called tummy tuck) procedure for men and women. If dieting and exercise have failed to produce the attractive shape you want, abdominoplasty may be the ideal solution. It is a procedure that removes excess fat and loose skin in the abdomen and tightens the muscles to result in a trim, firm midsection.
You are a suitable candidate for the procedure if you are healthy, close to your ideal weight and have any of the following concerns:
- Loose, sagging skin that remains after pregnancy or excessive weight loss
- Stretched or weak abdominal muscles due to aging, heredity, pregnancy, or prior surgery
- Excess abdominal skin and tissue after weight loss surgery or liposuction
- Pockets of stubborn fat in the abdominal area
Tummy tuck surgery is a key element of the mommy makeover we offer.
Tummy Tuck Surgery – Get Personalized Treatment
Based on the extent of correction required, there are different approaches to abdominoplasty such as:
- Full abdominoplasty
- Mini abdominoplasty
- High lateral tension abdominoplasty
Basically, the procedure involves making incisions to remove the excess fat and skin and later tightening the muscles. After a comprehensive evaluation of your anatomy and specific aesthetic goals, our plastic surgeons will recommend the most suitable option for you.
Our surgeons also offer an innovative approach called the Brazilian tummy tuck which provides many additional benefits in terms of outcome, efficiency, and downtime. In this case, the incision is positioned very low so that the scar remains hidden when you are wearing a bikini. The procedure also pulls the waist in and makes it smaller, thereby improving the outcome. Moreover, as the pubic area is lifted, women benefit from fewer episodes of incontinence. You can enjoy the results with a downtime of just 10 days.
Tummy tuck surgery at our AAAASF-accredited Manhattan, NYC practice offers the following benefits:
- A firm, tight, attractive abdominal area
- A narrower waist
- Reduced appearance of stretch marks
- Improved self-esteem and confidence
Abdominoplasty and Fat Transfer
We also offer fat transfer procedures 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. Our surgeons utilize advanced, minimally-invasive liposuction modalities which reduce surgical trauma. As the patient’s own body fat is used, the chances of rejection are minimal. More importantly, this technique is ideal for women who want to avoid the use of buttock implants.
Smooth and Comfortable Recovery
The procedure generally takes one to three hours to complete, depending upon the extent of the extent of changes made. The recovery time would also vary based on the conditions addressed, surgical techniques, and other factors. The complete recovery time after liposuction-only treatment is generally about one week. Your surgeon will recommend the level of physical activity at each stage of recovery.
To minimize pain following the surgery, our surgeons employ the ON-Q PainBuster® pain relief system. The pump delivers local anesthetic continuously to the treatment site so that there is no pain for the first five days. The use of this non-narcotic automatic pump significantly reduces downtime, improves mobility, and speeds up return to normalcy.
