Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery
Abdominoplasty, or the “tummy tuck,” is a body contouring procedure to flatten the abdomen. Many factors can cause your abdomen to look unattractive, including weight gain/loss, pregnancy, aging, previous surgery, stretched out abdominal muscles and hereditary factors. It is not uncommon that tummy tuck plastic surgery is indicated in people that are successful at losing weight with diet and exercise in order to create the desired flat abdomen. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery offers advanced options in abdominoplasty at our clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Abdominoplasty often can reduce or even get rid of stretch marks and excess sagging skin and fatty tissue on the abdomen. Liposuction is often utilized to reduce the amount of fat, and some people will require the abdominal muscles to be moved and tightened to ensure a more natural look to the abdomen, especially after pregnancy. The hips and waist are often also positively affected by abdominoplasty, creating the desired contours and curves. The overall goal is a tight, flat abdomen with a natural curve at the transition zone from the waist to the hips. The tummy tuck is performed with an incision that is placed at the top of the pubic area. It can be easily hidden below the bikini line – making it discreet and easy to cover.
Are You a Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
Tummy tuck plastic surgery is not just for women. Although it is often combined with breast augmentation or breast lift and other procedures performed in a “Mommy Makeover,” it can also be used to flatten the male abdomen. Anyone who has stretched skin or muscle on the stomach with fatty tissue can benefit from abdominoplasty. Liposuction, excess skin removal and muscle tightening can create the firm, flat stomach desired.
