A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure for our New York area patients who are looking to remove extra fat and skin while tightening up their abdominal muscles to get a flat tummy and smooth skin. Even though many of our patients exercise and eat well, some still have trouble getting a firm and flat belly. Our abdominoplasty New York surgeons offer the skill and expertise necessary to help you achieve those aesthetic goals.
There are several reasons why our NY patients come in for a tummy tuck:
Major weight loss (or many fluctuations)
Poor lifestyle habits
A tummy tuck can bring out the very best YOU and give you confidence again by having a flat tummy. For many of our NY patients, abdominoplasty gives them self-esteem that has been missing for years. Especially for moms (a mommy makeover) and patients who have lost a great deal of weight, a tummy tuck can completely transform their figure!
Are YOU a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
In weighing the options for getting a flat tummy, it’s important to evaluate whether a tummy tuck is the right decision for you. Our abdominoplasty NY surgeons can help you look at every angle and make the choice even easier.
They will evaluate if you are:
In good health
Living a healthy lifestyle with exercise and a healthy diet
Expecting realistic results from a tummy tuck
At a stabilized weight for at least 3 months
Trying to match a cookie-cutter body image or if you are aiming for the best YOU
How Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York is Different
Our abdominoplasty NY surgeons are Board Certified in Plastic Surgery to give you the safest tummy tuck procedure possible with the very best results. When appropriate, we perform tumescent liposuction to sculpt the abdominals and give patients the most beautiful, flat tummy they ever imagined was possible. Additionally, we utilize local anesthetic with sedation whenever possible to lower health risks, and reduce the cost to our New York tummy tuck patients.
Our unique approach to plastic surgery is what sets us apart from other NY cosmetic surgery practices. We offer advanced techniques in abdominoplasty as well as all of our cosmetic surgery procedures. Our very own AAAHC accredited surgical facilities in Long Island and Manhattan provide our New York abdominoplasty patients with a safe and affordable place for plastic surgery.

Other Plastic Surgery Procedures that Compliment an Abdominoplasty
Mommy Makeover: When done during a Mommy Makeover, a tummy tuck can also be combined with tumescent liposuction for body sculpting and a breast augmentation/lift/reduction.
Bikini Body Makeover: An abdominoplasty can be combined with SmartLipo laser liposuction body sculpting to remove trouble areas of fat and tighten loose skin on any part of the body including the hips, love handles, buttocks and thighs. Some bikini makeover patients choose to also have a breast procedure.
Body Lift Post-Bariatric: For patients who have lost massive amounts of weight and are left with hanging skin and lax muscles, a tummy tuck is an important part of the full body lift experience to helping the body shrink down to a patient’s current weight.
Some reasons why our abdominoplasty NY surgeons may ask you to wait to have tummy tuck surgery:
Health conditions that would make it too dangerous for surgery.
Fluctuations in weight or if you plan to lose more than 25 pounds.
Plans to have more children.
If you smoke or take medications that would increase your risks for complications or yield poor results.
If you expect a tummy tuck to correct stretch marks (though some will be removed during the tummy tuck) or if you want to use the procedure to help you lose weight.
