An Abdominoplasty in New York

Stomach,Hand,Woman,Studio,On,WhiteA tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is ideal for addressing the abdominal issues of excess skin and loose muscles women develop during pregnancy as well as after bariatric surgery or lost a significant amount of weight.

What Causes Abdominal Changes During Pregnancy?

During pregnancy, in order to provide more space for the baby, the abdominal muscles stretch, as well as sometimes separate, which causes the muscles to spread apart. Although exercise can help strengthen the abdominal muscles, it cannot bring them back together. This means that they might not be as flat as they were or give you the waist you had prior. The skin also stretches, and can tear, creating stretchmarks and loose skin. Therefore, once these muscles spread apart, or the skin has lost its elasticity, surgery is the only way to correct this issue. Without surgery, a stubborn pouch may develop. This pouch remains until surgical intervention addresses it.

A New York Abdominoplasty

During a tummy tuck, your surgeon tightens stretched abdominal muscles, removes damaged skin, and can address stubborn fat deposits. After your New York abdominoplasty, your abdomen is firmer and more aesthetically pleasing than before your procedure.

A tummy tuck procedure can take from 60 to 90 minutes. A tummy tuck can be performed under epidural or general anesthesia.

Abdominoplasty surgery steps:

  1. A thin incision is made in the same area as a c section, low in the bikini line.
  2. The surgeon tightens stretched abdominal muscles.
  3. The excess skin and fat are removed.
  4. Once the procedure is complete, your doctor uses absorbable stitches to close the incision.

Recovering After a New York Tummy Tuck

Recovery times vary from two to six weeks, depending on the type of activities you perform. During recovery, you must refrain from lifting heavy items and avoid participating in strenuous exercises and activities. Your doctor will provide you with a list of things to avoid, and if you’re ever unsure about an activity, give us a call.
