Childbirth and motherhood are wonderful things, but that flabby, saggy, deflated post-baby belly that many women experience is not.
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, our tummy tuck NY specialists have performed many Mommy Makeover procedures which include abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, on women who are looking to restore their firmer, flatter pre-pregnancy belly.
Pregnancy causes many changes to the body, particularly in the belly. Many women also suffer from separated abdominal muscles, or diastasis recti, after pregnancy.
This causes the belly to bow out, making you look several months pregnant even after you’ve lost all your pregnancy weight.
This can be true with even the fittest, skinniest and most in-shape women; there is little that can be done to fix it… save for a tummy tuck that is!
Getting a Tummy Tuck in NYC is Gaining in Popularity
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), abdominoplasty was the sixth most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed in 2011, and the fifth most popular procedure among female patients.
And while tummy tuck was once performed mostly on post-menopausal women, doctors are finding that more and more younger women between the ages of 30 and 54 are undergoing tummy tucks to address post-pregnancy issues.
At the tummy tuck NY locations of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, this procedure is also one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries.
Surgery in our Our Tummy Tuck NY Centers is Different
The Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team of New York use cutting-edge techniques to ensure each patient’s safety and comfort while optimizing results. Tummy tuck is often performed under general anesthesia but we can also perform it using local anesthesia and sedation.
We also perform the Avelar method tummy tuck. During surgery, separated abdominal muscles are tightened and excess fat and loose skin are removed. Patients can expect moderate discomfort and a recovery period of about 10 to 14 days before they can resume normal activities.
