If you have recently been pregnant or lost a significant amount of weight, you may have loose, sagging skin in the abdominal area that is compromising your overall figure. You may also notice that you have resistant fat deposits in the waist area that will not go away, no matter how much you diet and exercise. These problems and more can be corrected with a tummy tuck.
The ideal tummy tuck candidate should:
- Be in strong overall health
- Maintain a stable weight
- Have excess skin in the stomach area
- Have loose abdominal muscles
During your tummy tuck consultation, our plastic surgeon will review your medical history, examine your condition, and discuss the details of the abdominoplasty procedure with you. We will also help you visualize what a tummy tuck can accomplish in your unique case, so you know what to expect from your results.
There are two main types of tummy tucks: a mini (or partial) tummy tuck, which addresses skin and muscle below the belly button, and a complete abdominoplasty, which treats a larger area both above and below your belly button. Our plastic surgeon may also recommend liposuction to further contour the treatment area.
To find out if a tummy tuck is right for you, please contact JUVA Skin & Laser Center today or call (888) 610-3133 to schedule a consultation with our board-certified New York City cosmetic surgeon. We serve patients throughout NYC and Manhattan.
