Tummy Tuck in NYC
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 a 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. Often, Tummy Tucks in NYC are combined with Liposuction, Breast Augmentation and Facial Rejuvenation.
Dr. Grossman will frequently use the fat and stem cells, obtained from the unneeded portion of the belly to build patients their own new breasts, make them look 10 to 20 years younger 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 New York City performed by Dr. Grossman are performed under IV Sedation, also known as twilight anesthesia in our center. This avoids common complications associated with general anesthesia. Average surgical time for a tummy tuck is 2 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 and tightness in the abdomen, which can be controlled with Motrin or Aleve.
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.
The patient must know that our price of the tummy tuck in NYC includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, operating facility and ancillary staff fee and all the needed follow up exams.
When shopping for the best deal in town keep these facts in mind and also be ware that having the least expensive surgeon operate on you may eventually cost you so much more in the future.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: IN NEW YORK STATE, ANY, EVEN UNTRAINED PHYSICIANS CAN LEGALLY PERFORM SURGERY AT THEIR OFFICE. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR DOCTOR IS A QUALIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, NOT SOME ONE WHO TOOK A WEEKEND COURSE OF LECTURES ON HOW TO PERFORM A SURGICAL PROCEDURE. ASK YOUR PHYSICIAN TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS THAT HE OR SHE HAS COMPLETED TWO TO THREE YEARS OF PLASTIC SURGERY TRAINING AT AN ACCREDITED RESIDENCY PROGRAM.
Corrective procedures are much more expensive, than the first time well performed surgery.
Your goal as the patient is to make the right choice and have the surgery you have always wanted done right the very first time.
