What is a Tummy Tuck New York?
If you suffer from loose lax hanging skin in your abdominal region than a tummy tuck may be right for you. Typically after pregnancy or dramatic weight loss, an individual may develop loose lax hanging skin. A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can correct this unsightly condition. Excess skin is removed from the abdominal area creating a flatter firmer tummy.
What is a Mini Tummy Tuck New York?
One variation of abdominoplasty is the mini–tummy tuck new york. This uses a shorter incision just at or above the pubic region, similar to the incision for a cesarean section. A mini tummy tuck New York is a modified tummy tuck that uses a C-section-like incision to tighten muscle and remove excess lower abdominal skin.
What Are The Different Techniques Available?
The Tummy Tuck New York procedure is performed with a horizontal incision in the lower abdomen within the bikini line. The muscles of the abdomen are tightened, and the excess skin and fat are trimmed and redraped. Liposuction is sometimes used in addition to address the flanks.
Most Tummy Tuck New York surgeries require repositioning of the navel. In the “mini” abdominoplasty procedure, lower abdominal muscle tightening with fat and skin removal are performed through a limited horizontal bikini incision only, without repositioning of the navel. Small drain tubes are placed with both techniques.
What Should I Expect After My Procedure?
After the Tummy Tuck New York procedure, a soft abdominal binder is placed. The drains are removed 1-2 weeks following procedures. Most sutures will dissolve. Patients generally require one week off from work after this type of procedure. Walking is permitted and encouraged immediately after the procedure, but strenuous activity and heavy lifting are limited until six weeks following the tummy tuck procedure.
