Bellava Spa, Westchester County’s Leading Tummy Tuck Surgery Center
Are you hiding your figure under loose, baggy clothing? Does your “muffin top” make you feel self-conscious? Do you long for a trimmer, more toned silhouette? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you’ve come to the right place! Bellava MedAesthetics and Plastic Surgery Center of Katonah, NY, a leading Westchester County cosmetic surgery facility, specializes in tummy tucks. Our lead plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang Soo Kim, has performed hundreds of tummy tucks during his career and has dramatically improved the lives of his patients.
A flat, toned stomach is the desire of most people, but unfortunately, many men and women just can’t achieve the waistline the long for on their own. Genetics, age, pregnancy, and excessive weight loss are just some of the factors that can lead to a flabby midriff. Carrying around excess skin and fat not only affects your self-confidence, but it can also cause discomfort. If a bulging stomach and excess belly fat are getting you down, a Westchester County tummy tuck may be the right option for you!
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, formally known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the belly and tightening weakened abdominal muscles. There are two main types of tummy tucks:
- Full tummy tuck. Also known as a complete abdominoplasty, this procedure focuses on correcting the entire abdominal region. Excess skin and fat above and below the belly button are removed and the muscles of the abdominal wall (fascia) are tightened. A full tummy tuck is ideal for patients who have lost an extreme amount of weight or whose skin has lost elasticity as a result of aging.
- Mini tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck (a partial abdominoplasty) is similar to a full tummy tuck in that it involves the removal of excess belly fat and skin, and corrects weakened fascia. However, this treatment focuses on the lower portion of the stomach; below the belly button. It’s a popular cosmetic procedure among women who want to get rid of their “mom pooches”. The incision is smaller than a full tummy tuck, and generally, healing time is shorter.
Should You consider a Westchester County Tummy Tuck?
The decision to get a tummy tuck is a personal one. While men and women have different reasons for wanting a tummy tuck, generally, they all share one common goal: to achieve a tighter, flatter, and more visually appealing midriff.
The improved appearance that a tummy tuck provides will certainly boost your self-confidence and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin. But the benefits can be more than just cosmetic; a Westchester County tummy tuck can also help to alleviate back pain, improve posture, alleviate stress urinary incontinence (SUI), and correct abdominal (ventral) hernias.
If you think you would benefit from a tummy tuck, schedule an appointment with a leading Katonah, NY plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang Soo Kim. Together, you can determine if this procedure is the right option for you, and if so, whether you a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck would better suit your needs.
