Slim Down for Summer with a Tummy Tuck in NYC

Tummy Tuck NYC

Are you tired of hiding that belly pooch or dealing with a protruding stomach? If your body has changed after having kids or losing a significant amount of weight, you can achieve a slim and firm look with the tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, involves removing excess skin, manipulating the abdominal muscles, and reshaping the waistline to create a trim and toned midsection. It’s the perfect procedure for mothers that want to get back into pre-pregnancy shape, and anyone who wants to achieve a flat, smooth, and youthful contour of the midsection.

Do I Really Need a Tummy Tuck?

Many patients wonder whether they should undergo a tummy tuck or simply get liposuction to slim down their midsection. The difference between the tummy tuck in NYC and the standard liposuction procedure is that the tummy tuck will not remove excess fat but will remove extra skin and completely reshape the midsection. This body contouring procedure may involve tightening the abdominal muscles after they have been stretched from pregnancy or weight gain. Liposuction can help some patients by removing any stubborn fat that may exist along the abdomen.

You may benefit from a tummy tuck if:

  • You have a very noticeable pooch because of a loss of skin elasticity
  • You have a protruding stomach that won’t flatten out with diet and exercise
  • You have stretched or torn your abdominal muscles
  • You want a tight and toned midsection after having children
  • You can take time off work and your daily routine to accommodate for the recovery period

Loose skin and a protruding stomach cannot be corrected with diet and exercise alone. If you’re tired of hiding your figure flaws behind baggy clothing or you just want to improve your self-confidence, consider the benefits of a tummy tuck right in time for summer! Now is a great time to undergo a procedure and you’ll be healed within a few short weeks. You can look forward to showing off your new figure at the beach and maintain your results as long as you do not gain any weight or become pregnant.
