Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in NYC

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in NYC

Every woman’s pregnancy is individual and for some women, achieving their “pre-baby” abdomen post-pregnancy may be difficult. Despite your dedication to a healthy diet and exercise routine, you may not be able to slim down your now changed stomach. Perhaps you have lost some weight in certain areas of the body, but others just won’t follow suit no matter what you do.

That’s where a tummy tuck in NYC comes in.

At Viva Eve, we are dedicated to offering a comprehensive range of women’s health and wellness services for women of all ages. Beyond the standard Ob/Gyn services we offer, we now offer custom mommy makeover plans that are individualized for each patient’s needs. Tummy tucks are often a key component of these plans, and they are are one of the most sought after procedures that we offer in New York City.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

When considering options to help regain your pre-baby figure, there are a variety of procedures that can help. Many patients consider liposuction as a way to remove stubborn fat and contour their stomach. However, there are times when removing fat alone doesn’t quite do the trick. In those cases, our expert surgery team will recommend a tummy tuck.

Tummy tucks are the answer to the loose folds of skin and lack of elasticity that occurs after a major life-changing event such as pregnancy or extreme weight loss. Our leading board-certified surgeon is dedicated to putting your needs first, offering several different techniques to help achieve the look you desire.

Why Undergo a Tummy Tuck in New York?

In New York, you’re surrounded by an array of plastic surgeons who offer a bevy of plastic surgery procedures – and that’s where their expertise ends. Viva Eve stands apart from other cosmetic surgery options in NYC through our extensive and diverse team of in-house medical experts, led by our Director of Plastic Surgery. Our multidisciplinary expertise allows our practice to offer unparalleled care for women – mentally, emotionally, and physically. We recognize a woman’s right to feel and look her best. And that includes empowering her to enhance her natural beauty through living a healthy lifestyle and knowing when to consider surgical intervention.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for a Tummy Tuck at Viva Eve?

Childbirth often leads to changes in a woman’s physical shape – and this can take a toll on a woman’s overall health and wellbeing. When the trouble areas (such as a woman’s midsection) lead to constant feelings of unhappiness and frustrating physical issues, we suggest discussing a tummy tuck with an expert. Since our New York abdominoplasty surgeries offer permanent results, getting pregnant again after a tummy tuck could completely reverse all of the aesthetic results of the surgery, which is why ideally most candidates have completed their pregnancy phase and are done with childbearing.

Other suitable candidates for our advanced tummy tuck techniques are women who are dealing with:

  • Loose or sagging skin around their abdominal area
  • Difficulty achieving their ideal weight, despite eating well and being active
  • Weakened abdominal muscles that may have separated as a result of the pregnancy process
  • Diminished self-confidence due to excess skin that could be remedied with a tummy tuck

All candidates for this tummy tuck surgery in New York should also be in good general health, which we’ll be able to evaluate at our offices.

Tummy Tuck Benefits & Risks

Benefits

There are many health benefits that our patients experience after the NYC tummy tuck procedure at Viva Eve. Aside from achieving noticeable aesthetic results, there are also significant medical advantages, which include:

 

  • Reducing the risk for other medical conditions such as hernias, gallbladder disease, and gallstones.
  • Gaining increased control over all of your bodily functions, relieving the stress and embarrassment of dealing with urinary incontinence.
  • Getting rid of stubborn fat and also naturally strengthening your core, helping to build those weakened abdominal muscles back up.
  • Experiencing reduced back and muscle pain as well since your abdomen is no longer carrying around all that extra baggage. 

An exciting advantage of undergoing a tummy tuck is that you can see a lot of the results right away. While it does take several months to heal, you will start to notice quite an improvement in your abdomen flattening. After a few months, the results will be even more noticeable.

Risks

While tummy tucks are highly successful, there are still a few risks that are important to talk about.

 

  • There is temporary bruising, swelling, and discomfort following the procedure.
  • A risk of numbness and prolonged pain may be present; if this occurs, get in touch with your surgeon right away.
  • Some tummy tucks may produce excess scarring.

Our empathetic and attentive surgical team will carefully monitor your procedure and recovery. If you’re not recovering as expected, you can utilize our 24/7 Patient Care Line to give us a call.

Our Viva Eve surgery experts highly recommend tummy tuck surgery in NYC because we have seen incredible long-term benefits and the transformative results that it leads to. While a tummy tuck is offered as part of our personalized mommy makeover package, a tummy tuck is a procedure that many women can benefit from. If you haven’t had a child, but you’re dealing with excess skin and fat in the stomach, you should consider booking a tummy tuck in NYC.

After your personalized consultation, you will have a much better idea of which procedure is right for you, whether it is a tummy tuck treatment or something less invasive, like meeting with our nutritionist.

Our mission is to support you on your wellness journey, whatever that might be.
