Are all abdominoplasty/ tummy tuck procedures the same?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to plastic surgery, as everyone is different. Your body type and desired outcome are used to perform a tummy tuck that’s right for you. Popular types of tummy tucks in New York include the Brazilian, scarless (endoscope assisted), and full tummy tuck, but there are other types to consider too. Dr Grossman will advise you carefully on each option during your initial consultation. Renuvion or J-Plasma tissue tightening tummy tuck is a procedure which Dr Grossman has been using since 2016 and is one of the first Plastic Surgeons in the world to incorporate in to his practice.
Am I a good candidate for the procedure?
Abdominoplasty is an elective procedure and as such, your safety is Dr Grossman’s paramount concern. The best candidates are healthy patients with excess fat and skin in the abdominal region. Many mothers who want a mommy make-over opt for surgery to remove excess fat and skin after childbirth. Obscuring or eliminating a Caesarian section scar can also be incorporated into the procedure. Those who have lost a lot of weight might also be keen to remove the excess skin that’s left over around the torso.
For the most effective tummy tuck, New York’s own Dr. Grossman is the plastic surgeon to turn to. Schedule an appointment with the most respected and renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon today.
Tummy Tucks or Abdominoplasty is a procedure, which is designed to create a flatter tummy, shapelier waistline and firmer abdominal muscle. This procedure corrects loose skin and fat as well as weakened muscles of the abdomen in patients who either went through pregnancy or lost significant amount of weight.
There are many different types of Tummy Tucks that New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Grossman performs, and each type depends on the patient’s presentation and desirable outcome.
Each procedure is individualized to the patient’s needs, with the Brazilian Tummy Tuck and Full Tummy Tuck being the most popular. Endoscopic Assisted or Scarless Tummy Tuck is close behind the first two in demand and then you have the mini tummy tuck and the reverse tummy tuck. Often, Tummy Tucks in NYC are combined with Liposuction, Breast Augmentation and Facial Rejuvenation otherwise known as mommy-make-over.
Dr. Grossman will frequently use the fat and stem cells, obtained from the unwanted portion of the belly to build patients new breasts, make them look 10 to 20 years younger by transferring stem cells to the face or give them new calves or the most desirable Brazilian Buttocks. As long as the total operative time does not exceed 5 hours, we feel that you should do very well and the procedure should prove to be quite safe.
All the tummy tucks in NYC performed by Dr. Grossman are performed under IV Sedation combined with excellent local anesthesia, also known as twilight combination anesthesia in our center. This avoids common and dangerous complications associated with general anesthesia. Average surgical time for a tummy tuck is 2 to 3 hours. There is usually no postoperative nausea and as in most cases no postoperative pain at all. Our patients are encouraged to start walking immediately and they all do so very well right after surgery.
Our patients have minimal discomfort bur will feel tightness in the abdomen, which can be easily controlled with just Motrin or Aleve.
Dr. Grossman’s truly revolutionary approach to tummy tucks allows his patients not require any drain tubes and gives them the ability to shower the very next day.
The level of activities is judged and prescribed according to how each patient feels. Some patients can drive and work the very next day and some need up to two weeks to do the same, but the average patient of normal weight can drive a car in just about 3 days.
Six weeks after surgery, all patients (as a rule) should be able to do anything they were able to do before the surgery, but with a new, flatter tummy and a slimmer figure.
Tummy Tuck cost in New York City varies according to the type of the Tummy Tuck that will produce the most favorable outcome for the particular patient. Patient’s medical history and condition are important in the decision making process, since the patients’ safety is of paramount importance.
