If you are self-conscious about loose skin and weak abdominal muscles, our Westchester tummy tuck with Dr. Reinblatt can help you achieve a firm, toned and more youthful midsection.
With age, the skin naturally loses its elasticity and your muscles weaken.
After losing a substantial amount of weight, for example after weight loss surgery, sagging skin and stretched abdominal muscles often linger.
Some men and women have a genetic predisposition that causes abdominal fat to accumulate regardless of their diet, exercise regimen and healthy lifestyle.
During pregnancy, the skin stretches and the abdominal muscles separate. This results in poor muscle tone and diminished elasticity.
Ideal Westchester NY tummy tuck candidates in generally respond "yes" to all of the following questions:
In addition, patients who plan to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight are not considered candidates for this procedure.
This is the most commonly performed tummy tuck procedure. It involves two incisions: one from hip-to-hip and another around the belly button. With this approach, Dr. Reinblatt can reposition the belly button and tighten and tone the entire abdomen.
This approach is best for Westchester NY patients that are very close to their ideal body weight. With this technique, Dr. Reinblatt can alter the abdomen just below the naval. It involves a small incision and there is no need to reposition the belly button. The mini tummy tuck is also associated with a shortened recovery period.
For patients with the most excess skin to lose, the extended tummy tuck is ideal. Through a low incision that extends behind the hips, Dr. Reinblatt can remove love handles, fat and excess skin throughout the entire stomach area.
Your tummy tuck will be done under general anesthesia and can take one to five hours, depending on the extent of your surgery. Once you are sedated, Dr. Reinblatt will make the incision based on the type of tummy tuck you have selected. She will go to great lengths to ensure that these cuts are discreet and easily hidden with clothes and swimwear. From there, she will take the following surgical steps:
Dr. Reinblatt will begin contouring your abdomen by tightening lax muscles. After separating the skin from the abdominal walls, she will pull them together and stitch them into a new, toned position. In addition to tightening the muscles, this process also narrows the waistline.
After tightening lax abdominal muscles, Dr. Reinblatt will pull the skin taut and trim away the excess tissue. She will often preform liposuction at this time as well to remove unwanted pockets of fat. Throughout this process, she is often able to improve the appearance of stretch marks for many of her clients.
Most tummy tucks involve relocating the belly button to a more natural position once the muscles and skin have been tightened. This part of the procedure is a true art form, so it is very important to select a Westchester NY board-certified plastic surgeon with a high degree of skill and a successful track record with this technique. Once your abdomen has been tightened and toned and your belly button repositioned, Dr. Reinblatt will carefully close the incisions to ensure that the scars are virtually imperceptible once healed. She will then place a surgical drain at the incision site to speed up the healing process and alleviate pain that may develop due to a buildup of fluids.
