If you have excess skin or fat in your midsection, a tummy tuck may be an ideal option for you. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, our Manhattan plastic surgeon can help you achieve the look you’ve been hoping for with a tummy tuck.

Excess abdominal skin may exist from fat loss, pregnancy, or other environmental factors. Whatever the reasons it exists, a tummy tuck is a great option to be rid of it. There are two different types of tummy tucks that our Manhattan plastic surgeon performs:

  • After a tummy tuck from our Manhattan plastic surgeon, woman shows off her beach-worth stomachMini-Tummy Tuck (Partial Tummy Tuck) – excess skin is removed and abdominal muscles are tightened in the abdominal areas below your navel
  • Complete Tummy Tuck  -- excess skin is removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened in the entire abdominal area, above and below the navel

During a mini-tummy tuck procedure, our New York plastic surgeon will make an incision that runs along your bikini line between your hips. Then, excess skin will be removed and the abdominal muscles will be strengthened, leaving you with a gorgeously taut and smooth lower abdomen.

During a complete tummy tuck procedure, our plastic surgeon will make two incisions, one that runs along your bikini line, between your hips and one around your belly button. Then, excess skin will be removed from the entire abdominal area, abdominal muscles will be strengthened, and, oftentimes, you will notice a decrease in stretch marks as well.

If you have excess skin from fat loss, pregnancies, or other reasons, please contact our Manhattan plastic surgeon today to discuss if a tummy tuck is the right procedure for you. We look forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals! Call JUVA Skin & Laser Center today at (888) 610-3133.
