Westchester NY Tummy Tuck

About tummy tucks

Abdominoplasty surgery or also known as “tummy tuck”, is a common cosmetic surgical procedure used to create a more contoured abdomen and firm muscles. The cosmetic surgery entails the removal of fat and excess skin from both the upper and lower abdominal walls, in order to tighten the abdominal muscle and ligament of the lower wall. The result is an improvement in the aesthetic appearance of the body, particularly the stomach area. This type of cosmetic surgery is often performed to eliminate excessive waist bulge, which creates a bulging abdomen around the hip area, as well as the arms and legs.

For tummy tuck surgery, it is generally recommended that you abstain from alcohol, smoking, and all forms of strenuous activity for at least 24 hours prior to the procedure. It is also recommended that you consult with your doctor prior to engaging in any strenuous activity or sport that requires extended standing, such as football, tennis, or fencing. Make sure to inform your doctor of any chronic medical conditions you may have, as well as any medications you may be taking. In the days prior to the procedure, you should be ready to discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor regarding your health, including any underlying illnesses or medications. Be aware that there can be complications from this operation, including hematoma, blood clots, temporary bruising or swelling, or even pneumonia.
