Dr. DelMauro has been my saving grace. For most of my life I have battled weight. Like a yoyo, at my heaviest I was 210 and my smallest 123. Once I reached a steady weight, I was left with lots of extra skin on the tummy. He and his team were kind, gentle, and very thorough with the tummy tuck process. And, the after care process was even more welcoming. While I struggled to see my new self, Dr. DelMauro helped me see and acknowledge the new woman I am. I am forever grateful. ~ RealSelf
Abdominoplasty surgery at the Body Sculpting Center of NYC consists of removing excess fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and removing loose excess abdominal skin— creating a smaller waist and more defined body contour. An individual may opt to undergo abdominoplasty to restore a more youthful, toned body, especially around the waist, hips, and belly. A tummy tuck not only surgically removes excess skin and fat located on the abdomen, but also tightens the muscles in the abdominal wall.
Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck can help remove lax skin that is frequently left behind after major weight loss such as bariatric surgery, pregnancy, or diet and exercise. When we carry too much fat, the skin stretches. When we lose that weight, the skin cannot retract to its former position. Simultaneously our bodies create less collagen as we get older, which causes the skin to become less elastic and more prone to wrinkles and drooping. This means that even a small amount of weight reduction might result in drooping skin, especially in older people who produce diminishing amounts of collagen.
You may be a candidate for abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) if you experience:
- A significant amount of fat deposits around the stomach
- A bulging abdomen
- Stretch marks beneath the naval
- Abdominal muscles that are weak or fragmented
During your initial abdominoplasty consultation with our best in class New York board certified plastic surgeon, he will perform a medical exam to determine if you are a candidate. The plastic surgeon will explain the procedure in full, and you will have the opportunity to discuss with him any questions or concerns you may have regarding your tummy tuck procedure. Individuals who are healthy and who have realistic post-surgical goals are usually candidates for an abdominoplasty at the Body Sculpting Center of NYC. You may also discuss combining other procedures with your tummy tuck. It is common for individuals to undergo a tummy tuck in conjunction with another surgery, such as liposuction around the hips and outer/inner thighs, body lift, mommy makeovers, and cosmetic breast surgery.
Your tummy tuck procedure will take place at the Body Sculpting Center of NYC’s state-of-the-art surgical suite conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan in New York City on an outpatient basis. Your tummy tuck surgery is performed under general anesthesia and may take between 2-3 hours to complete. A lower abdomen incision is made right above the pubic bone, and a second incision is made near the navel. Your NYC plastic surgeon then removes the extra abdominal tissue and tightens the muscles in the abdominal wall before closing the incision. Patients return home on the same day of surgery. Patients can expect to return to work within 1-2 weeks and make a full recovery within 1-2 months.
Circumferential Abdominoplasty / Circumferential Tummy Tuck
A circumferential abdominoplasty is typically utilized on patients who have recently undergone significant weight loss and have extra skin on their abdomen, waist, lower back, buttocks, and thighs. During a circumferential tummy tuck, your New York plastic surgeon makes an incision around the abdomen and tightens the skin outside of the incision area. Excess tissue is removed from problem areas such as the abdomen, waist, lower back, buttocks, and thighs. A circumferential tummy tuck can help patients achieve a dramatically flatter and contoured lower body.
Revision Tummy Tuck
Our highly-trained New York based plastic surgeon also performs revision abdominoplasty procedures (or “tummy tuck tune-up”) for patients seeking corrections or changes after a prior tummy tuck surgery. A revision tummy tuck procedure typically requires less downtime than the original abdominoplasty procedure. While uncommon, some patients may need a tummy tuck revision for a plethora of reasons such as unexpected weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, or trauma. Our board certified plastic surgeon can surgically enhance the results, including a lower abdominal scar revision to place the scar in a more discrete area.
