Westchester County offers arguably the best of New York state, with its close proximity to New York City and access to the beauty of nature. The county is full rural charm, sprawling cities and everything in between.
The NYBG private clinic in Cortlandt Manor provides the perfect location for an aesthetic procedure, such as our Westchester tummy tuck, away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.
What are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?
The benefits of a tummy tuck include:
- Tighter looking abdomen
- Smoother looking body contour
- Slimmed waist
- No more sagging skin, fat, and tissue
- Excess skin left after a dramatic weight loss removed
- Surgical scars invisible in even the most revealing clothing
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.
What is the Recovery Time Like?
The primary recovery time is the first two weeks, where your activity level will have to remain low, with great care to avoid strain on the abdominal area.
There will be bruising and swelling around the treatment area, which should subside as the days and weeks pass.
After this period, you should be able to return to your normal activity level, although more down time or restricted activity may be suggested depending on the extent of your surgery.
During this time, you will have follow up visits with your surgeon to ensure that healing is occurring as normal and that everything is going smoothly. As well, you may need to have any non-dissolving stitches removed.
Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
A good candidate for a tummy tuck typically demonstrates the following:
- Has reached a weight that is within range of their ideal weight
- Has realistic expectations for the procedure and its results
- Has a healthy lifestyle and commitment to maintaining their weight loss
- Is a non-smoker
- Has finished having children and does not plan on becoming pregnant, as this will compromise the results of the tummy tuck
- Have no medical conditions that would disqualify them from the procedure
- Are maintaining a stable weight
Are There Any Risks Associated with Getting a Tummy Tuck?
Ensuring your tummy tuck is performed by a highly-accomplished, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is of utmost importance in avoiding potential risks in surgery.
We will fully assess your medical history and give you a physical examination prior planning surgery. This ensures that the procedure goes smoothly, and you recover as expected.
Risks usually include bleeding, blood clots and fluid accumulation, as well as negative responses to anesthetics. Numbness in the surgical area may also occur. The risks can be reduced with proper surgical technique and strict patient health and safety protocols.
