About Abdominoplasty Surgery

For women and men alike, hanging skin and excess fat in the abdominal region can be a source of frustration despite efforts to lose it. Significant weight loss, childbirth, and aging are the typical reasons an individual may not succeed at trying to produce a slim and tight abdomen. A tummy tuck is a body contouring enhancement that successfully transforms the abdominal region, creating attractive outcomes for our patients. Our skilled plastic surgeons, Drs. James Romanelli, David Pincus, and John Layliev perform tummy tuck surgery that varies on the condition of the abdomen. This cosmetic treatment at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY allows patients the opportunity to have a toned, smaller abdomen and renewed confidence.

Ideal Candidates

Tummy tuck surgery can be performed on both women as well as men. If you cannot lose or reduce loose skin in addition to excess fat in the stomach, this surgical treatment can help create a slimming and more toned look. Prior to surgery, we recommend that you be at a healthy weight. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight loss procedure — it surgically corrects loose skin. A form of liposuction is often incorporated during the procedure to reduce fat. If your abdomen has good skin tightness, but you still are not satisfied with your appearance even on a healthy diet, you may be more suited for liposuction. Women interested in abdominoplasty should have completed pregnancy so that the results are not impacted.

Surgical Technique

Tummy tuck surgery is performed using general anesthesia. There are several methods to think about when this surgery is performed, which is applied toward the individual's needs. To start, the incision shape and size is selected based upon the excess skin that needs to be excised. Some individuals with severe hanging skin might benefit best from an extended tummy tuck. This method makes the incision from hip to hip just on top of the pubic section. Some individuals who have minimal skin laxity but still feel frustrated by their appearance may be better candidates for a smaller incision. These patients still benefit from tummy tuck surgery, but will simply have a less expansive scar. Regardless of how it is performed, all abdominoplasty procedures at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery involve the excision of loose skin and liposuction.

What to Expect

After your tummy tuck surgery, you will be carefully examined and sent home wearing a compression device to decrease swelling. Walking and standing will be hard to accomplish in the first few hours, so you should take it easy for a couple of days. Resuming normal movement becomes less painful once the muscles relax and the incision begins to heal. You should be able to resume normal activities somewhere around two weeks. Workouts can resume around eight weeks or earlier if you are given permission by Drs. Romanelli, Layliev, or Pincus. The midsection will feel sore and tight, but once healed you will feel normal.
