If you're seeking a tummy tuck in Westchester, the NYBG private clinic in Cortlandt Manor is a perfect location to undergo the aesthetic procedure in a peaceful environment away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.
What Does the Tummy Tuck Procedure Involve?
The tummy tuck procedure requires general anesthesia. An incision is placed on the lower abdomen, horizontally, low enough that it won’t be visible in underwear, a bikini, or other lower cut bottoms.
The excess skin, tissue and fat is removed through this incision. Fat may be removed with liposuction or surgically excised. Sagging, stretched, or damaged skin is removed, and split or sagging muscles repaired so the abdomen is tight and firm. The length of the incision will reflect your individual condition.
If there is a large quantity of excess skin and fat in the upper abdominal area, then an incision may be made in the navel to help reduce the excess skin and create a tighter upper abdomen.
In almost all cases, the abdominal muscles are tightened and repaired. This is especially necessary if the procedure is done post-childbirth and the abdominal wall was compromised by excess stretching, and now appears split, sags, or has many stretch marks.
After the sutures are carefully placed, the area will be protected with compression bandages to hold your newly-slimmed abdomen firmly in place during healing.
