Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Great Neck New York - PSNY


Abdominoplasty
Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck will remove excess skin and fat, tighten the abdominal wall and help you to attain much more balanced and shapely look. This could be your solution to a slimmer waistline and a more tightly contoured version of yourself.

A low incision just below the belt line is hidden by most clothing, and allows Dr. Elkowitz to completely recontour your tummy and flanks. Patients who have had children, lost weight or simply have some sagging with age will be amazed at how this quick and reliable procedure can improve your body. By simply reorienting the abdominal muscles, Dr. Elkowitz can give you back the shape and curves that you had before, even other abdominal surgeries.

We believe in a patient-driven and surgeon-guided approach. We will work closely with you in reviewing your options to obtain the ideal results specific for you. Abdominoplasty can also be combined with other procedures including breast, liposuction and thigh lift as part of the popular “mommy makeover”.

Considerations

  • Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures and for good reason. Along with removing excess skin and fat, abdominoplasty procedures tighten the abdominal wall. This results in a smaller midsection, better fitting clothes, improved posture and greater confidence.

Q&A

 

A full abdominoplasty allows for a complete yet precise reshaping of your belly. We will carefully work with you to understand your body type, your precise aesthetic vision and options.

 

An incision in the lowest part of the abdomen, usually completely hidden by clothing, is made and excess skin and fat is removed. In some cases, our doctors will also use liposuction to get rid of extra fat in surrounding locations. The underlying muscles are tightened and the abdomen is redraped and recontoured, offering a healthy, rejuvenated, tight, youthful tummy.

Many people want to know the difference between a tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. A mini-abdominoplasty delivers fantastic results with minimal scarring and a quick recovery time. It targets extra skin and fat below the belly button without repairing the muscle laxity that some people need. This simpler approach allows for smaller incisions and avoids surgery of the belly button itself. It is good for revising poor C-section scars and also for removing the overhanging skin at the lower abdomen or correction of the muffin top. The recovery time is easier and in some instances can actually be performed with only local anesthetic.
