Long Island Abdomen Procedures
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Long Island
Tummy Tuck Surgery can help firm and slim the stomach area by removing
excess hanging skin and repairing loose or stretched muscle. We have found
that tummy tuck is a particularly popular procedure for patients who desire
a sleeker belly but don’t necessarily need or want liposuction.
The common caused for a lumpy or slack belly include:
- Significant weight fluctuations
- Prior surgery
When you undergo a full abdominoplasty, your surgeon generally start with
an incision that runs between the pubic hairline and the navel. The shape
and length of the cut will depend on how much alteration is necessary.
Your weakened abdominal muscles are repaired and excess fat, tissue and
skin is removed. You may require a second incision around the navel if
extra skin needs to be taken from the upper abdomen.
Liposuction Long Island
Liposuction is a great option for women and men who have unwanted fat in
certain areas. This procedure will minimize and shape your contours. Through
our advanced liposuction techniques, our staff can expertly and easily
enhance the appearance of almost any part of your body.
Liposuction will not tighten muscle or skin, nor is it a method for overall
weight loss. The procedure is designed to target localized pockets of
fat that are particularly resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction
works best for patients with good skin tone and elasticity who are at
their ideal weight.
Your surgeon will make little incisions in the target areas and then inject
a solution to limit blood loss and reduce discomfort. A thin, hollow tube,
called a cannula, will be inserted into the fat to break it up and then
vacuum it out. Because of the small size of the incisions, our patients
experience minimal scarring.
Body Lift Long Island
A Body Lift provides the most dramatic transformation of the mid and lower
body. It is truly a "resculpting" of the abdomen, hips, thighs
and buttocks. Broken into its components, the lower body lift includes
a tummy tick, a thigh lift and a buttock lift.
The body lift procedure is performed on post-bariatric patients who have
excess skin because of massive weight loss. However, results can also
be dramatic for individuals of normal, stable weight. For example, some
of our tummy tuck patients choose to undergo a body lift to tighten the
skin on their thighs and buttocks, as well as their bellies.
