The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed specifically to target loose and excess skin and tissue around the abdomen. Patients who undergo a tummy tuck in NYC with Dr. Scheinman are able to restore a more youthful and firmer contour for their bellies.
Who Is The Tummy Tuck For?
The tummy tuck procedure in New York is a very common body contouring procedure. Once skin loses its elasticity, it becomes nearly impossible to restore a firm contour with diet and exercise alone. Skin can become loose or begin to sag due to factors such as:
- Weight loss after major weight gain
While regular exercise and healthy nutrition will not help with the excess skin, it is important to maintain a healthy weight before and after your tummy tuck surgery. A tummy tuck does not address unwanted fat, although it can be combined with liposuction surgery to remove these stubborn deposits that sit above the abdominals. Remember, there is no surgery that should be used as an alternative to a healthy lifestyle.
Tummy Tuck Surgery With NY Plastic Surgeon Dr. Scheinman
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that plastic surgeon Dr. Scheinman performs to remove excess skin and tissue while also repairing the abdominal wall. Your surgery will consist of a horizontal incision that Dr. Scheinman makes below your belly button to keep any future scarring as inconspicuous as possible.
Once you are out of surgery, NY plastic surgeon Dr. Scheinman provides you with a special compression garment to help minimize swelling and ensure proper healing for your skin. Swelling and discomfort is normal in the beginning, so you'll need to take some time off of work and your daily routine. Some patients are able to return to their job after two weeks, but everyone heals differently, so take your time until you feel strong enough.
Over time, your incision line will continue to flatten and fade. You will be able to conceal any scarring under a normal pair of underwear, and even most lingerie and bikinis. The belly-flattening benefits of a tummy tuck often result in a boost in self confidence for the men and women who undergo the procedure.
