Tummy Tuck in New York City—Tone Your Midsection
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as tummy tuck, can help patients of our New York City plastic surgery practice restore flatter, tighter abdominal contours. One of the most common body contouring procedures performed by Dr. Matthew Schulman, tummy tuck surgery can successfully:
- Restore muscles for a tightened abdominal wall
- Remove excess skin
- Improve skin elasticity
- Remove stretch marks
- Remove unsightly scars from previous surgery, such as C-sections
- Contour the abdomen and flanks through liposuction
Am I a Good Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
Dr. Schulman performs abdominoplasty for women who are bothered by separated or weakened abdominal muscles and loose skin. It is particularly helpful to women who have lost the contour of their abdomens after weight loss or pregnancy. For women seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies, Dr. Schulman may perform tummy tuck surgery as part of a comprehensive mommy makeover.
During your consultation with Dr. Schulman at our New York City office, he will determine your candidacy for tummy tuck surgery. You will learn about the variety of techniques that may be used to enhance the appearance of your abdomen, including the mini tummy tuck. He will discuss your options and help you decide on a treatment plan that will meet your goals.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
Tummy Tuck Recovery Process
After abdominoplasty, Dr. Schulman’s patients often feel renewed with a better-defined waistline and tight abdomen. Women usually feel more comfortable in clothing and when participating in social and physical activities. The results of a tummy tuck often last a lifetime but may change with weight gain or future pregnancies.
