New York Tummy Tucks
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a procedure designed to tighten abdominal skin and muscles. This is procedure gives patients a trim waistline by removing excess abdominal fat and tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. For patients who have experienced profound weight loss or multiple pregnancies, a tummy tuck can smooth the abdominal area from the upper tummy near the rib cage, all the way down to the bikini line.
Patients can see noticeable changes from a tummy tuck immediately after surgery with results becoming more pronounced over a period of several months. The results from this surgery are long-lasting so long as the patient engages in positive lifestyle habits and maintains a healthy weight.
The tummy tuck isn't for everyone. Some patients may be better candidates for abdominal liposuction. Female patients who plan to become pregnant in the future may choose abdominal liposuction over a tummy tuck procedure. Dr. Breitbart can help you choose which procedure is right for you.
