Tummy Tuck Surgery

Get tummy tuck surgery in NYC – say goodbye to excess abdominal skin and fat and achieve a firm and toned abdomen!

Fat deposits that build up in the abdomen due to factors such as pregnancy, weight gain, and genetics usually refuse to budge even with a healthy diet and strenuous workouts. Tummy tuck surgery at bodySCULPT® in NYC trims the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. Our well-trained, experienced plastic surgeons can help you achieve the smoother, firmer abdominal profile you want.


At bodySCULPT®, we use the latest technologies to perform tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty. Our surgeons are experts in performing different types of tummy tucks such as mini abdominoplasty, complete tummy tuck, and liposuction-only abdominoplasty. The procedure can:
  • Address a pot belly
  • Repair and tighten separated abdominal muscles and removes loose skin, which are common concerns after childbirth
  • Remove loose skin that remains after excessive weight loss
  • Reposition the belly button

Our plastic surgeons, Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia, perform the abdominoplasty procedure using advanced body contouring technologies such as:

  • Smartlipo Triplex
  • BodyTite
  • VASERlipo
These minimally-invasive options are used to remove excess fat and tighten the skin easily and safely. The abdominal muscles are then tightened. At our New York City center, tummy tuck surgery is done using these devices, which requires only local anesthesia and come with short downtime and recovery.
In addition to minimally invasive procedures, our surgeons provide non-invasive procedures that help you achieve the body of your dreams – without anesthesia, incisions or surgery, and with little to no discomfort or downtime. We also offer the Brazilian butt lift procedure (fat transfer to buttocks), which involves using fat removed during abdominoplasty to enhance buttock volume and contour.

The key aesthetics benefits that a tummy tuck in NYC can provide are as follows:

  • A flatter, smoother abdomen
  • Effective fat reduction and improved body contour
  • Tightens sagging skin and weak muscles

Tummy tuck also provides certain medical benefits:

  • Reduces stress urinary incontinence
  • Addresses back pain
  • Corrects a ventral hernia
  • Improves posture
  • Increases exercise tolerance

Tummy tuck surgery is a highly personalized procedure and outcomes will differ based on individual considerations. The general considerations that determine your candidacy for the procedure are as follows:

  • Have a protruding belly and abdominal muscles in the belly area
  • Are healthy and close to your ideal body weight
  • Have experienced significant weight loss
  • Have a positive attitude and realistic expectations about the outcome

At bodySCULPT®, our surgeons utilize diverse abdominoplasty techniques such as:

  • Liposuction-only abdominoplasty
  • Limited abdominoplasty
  • Complete abdominoplasty
  • Brazilian tummy tuck

Our surgeon will determine the right option for you based on the extent of correction required. For instance, in a full abdominoplasty, abdominal muscles that may have become stretched out or loose over time are tightened. While a complete abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and involves incisions, minimally invasive techniques use only local anesthesia.

We use advanced modalities to achieve the desired body contouring results. These safe, minimally invasive body contouring technologies can provide optimal results with high-definition sculpting capabilities and proven tissue coagulation and skin tightening benefits.

Pain after a tummy tuck is normal though it will vary from person to person. The discomfort is usually related to elevation of skin flaps and tightening of the abdominal muscles. You can expect some pain, swelling and bruising for the first 24-48 hours, and this will resolve soon.

The recovery ranges from 2-4 weeks depending on which type of tummy tuck you have, age, and other factors. Patients will be advised to refrain from heavy lifting and rigorous exercise for at least 3 weeks.

With the right effort to maintain the outcomes, tummy tuck results can last many years. However, weight changes, pregnancy and aging can impact results.


To ensure complete pain control post-op, in combo with the laser we use the ON-Q PainBuster® system, a non-narcotic pain relief pump that provides continual and targeted pain relief. The pain medication device provides a continuous infusion of local anesthetic to surgical sites continuously for up to 5 days, which eases recovery from the procedure. It is advantageous to patients in the following ways:

  • Faster, more comfortable recovery
  • Increased mobility
  • Faster return to normalcy
  • Reduction in narcotic related side effects and complications
