A Tummy Tuck is an excellent procedure for people who have had big fluctuations in weight resulting in lax stomach muscles and stubborn fat that won’t go away with exercise. In fact, exercise and further weight loss can sometimes accentuate the loose hanging skin in the tummy area. During a Tummy Tuck procedure, the loose skin and fat are removed, and what many people often don’t realize is that the tummy muscles are tightened and sewn back together. The procedure is often accompanied by liposuction to smooth out the area over the tummy and the hips.
When seeking a tummy tuck , it’s important to check the credentials of your surgeon. Only board certified Plastic Surgeons, like Dr. Weinberg, are specifically trained to do Tummy Tuck surgery. Well known for superb results Dr. Weinberg was invited to demonstrate his accomplishment in Tummy Tuck and Liposuction for the popular Television series Skin Deep. His success is attributable to an experienced eye, which allows him to properly evaluate a patient’s body shape, and to achieve the maximum reduction of tummy fat and loose skin with the best belly button placement. Some patients who have an isolated outpouching of skin and fat immediately below the belly button may benefit from a mini–tuck, a procedure in which a much smaller incision made below the belly button is sufficient to allow removal of the necessary tissue to achieve a flat abdomen. This procedure takes only 45 minutes, and patients are back to work in a few days, and can resume normal exercise in 2 to 4 weeks.
Dr. Weinberg’s dedication to superlative post operative care, with specialized treatments designed to promote wound healing, results in the fastest possible recovery, with the least visible, best type of scar possible given the individual’s skin type.
