Do you find yourself grappling with an unattractive abdomen due to factors like weight fluctuations, pregnancy, aging, or stretched abdominal muscles? Abdominoplasty, or the “tummy tuck,” is a body contouring procedure to flatten the abdomen. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a renowned double board-certified plastic surgeon, leads the way in advanced abdominoplasty options at Vantage Plastic Surgery’s clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn. In this comprehensive guide, we explore the intricacies of abdominoplasty, shedding light on its benefits, candidacy, and the expertise of Dr. Shteynberg.

Understanding Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck Surgery

Abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure designed to flatten the abdomen and address various aesthetic concerns. Factors such as weight gain or loss, pregnancy, aging, and hereditary factors can contribute to an unattractive abdomen. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg’s expertise in abdominoplasty extends beyond mere aesthetics; it encompasses the restoration of confidence and the creation of a naturally contoured abdomen.

Addressing Aesthetic Concerns

Abdominoplasty goes beyond the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue; it can also reduce or eliminate stretch marks, creating a smoother and more toned appearance. Dr. Shteynberg often incorporates liposuction to further refine the contours, ensuring optimal results. The procedure may also involve the repositioning and tightening of abdominal muscles, particularly in cases of muscle separation due to factors like pregnancy.

Impact on Hips and Waist

The positive effects of abdominoplasty extend to the hips and waist, contributing to the creation of desired contours and curves. The overall goal is to achieve a tight, flat abdomen with a natural transition zone from the waist to the hips. Dr. Shteynberg’s approach combines precision and artistry to ensure a result that is both aesthetically pleasing and harmonious with the patient’s body.

Discreet Incisions

The tummy tuck procedure involves an incision placed at the top of the pubic area, strategically located to be easily hidden below the bikini line. This discreet placement ensures that the surgical intervention is not only effective but also discreet and easily covered.

Versatility of Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is not confined to a specific gender. While it is often part of a comprehensive “Mommy Makeover” that includes breast augmentation or breast lift, it is equally effective in addressing aesthetic concerns in men. Whether for women seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy contours or men desiring a flatter abdomen, abdominoplasty is a versatile solution.

At Vantage Plastic Surgery, the journey towards abdominoplasty begins with a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Shteynberg and his team ensure that every issue and concern is thoroughly addressed.
