Dr. Varkony and the friendly staff at the Plastic Surgery Center have just the solution you have been waiting for- a tummy tuck or mini- tummy tuck. This short, convenient surgical approach has helped thousands of patients recapture or attain the flat, tight abdomen that they have been dreaming of. Imagine yourself in a bathing suit at the beach this summer!
A great way to tighten your abdomen either after childbirth, weight loss or simple aging. this procedure can be used by itself or in combination with liposuction to give you a great abdomen and waist. Extra skin above and below the belly button is usually treated with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) while the extra skin or “poochiness” below the belly button (often associated with having children) can usually be treated by a mini- tummy tuck, a smaller procedure that can be combined with abdominal liposculpting to give you back the abdomen you had before you had kids. A tummy tuck usually requires 7-10 days off work while with a mini- tummy tuck, the patient can usually be back at a “sitting” job in 3-5 days.
Both tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and mini- tummy tuck (mini- abdominoplasty) surgeries are associated with little discomfort. Those patients who have lost a lot of weight from diet or gastric bypass surgery, and those with excess hanging skin leading to recurrent rashes or associated with hernias may have their surgery covered by medical insurance.
For those patients who elect to have some liposculpting in association with their tummy tuck or mini- tummy tuck procedure, we offer tumescent, ultrasonic and PAL power-assisted liposculpting using the latest techniques, including small annuals (suction tubes), with minimal bleeding and hidden incisions. It is the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in the U.S. today. Many areas of the body can be beautifully sculpted including cheeks, neck, arms, breasts, chest, abdomen, waist, hips, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, knees, among others. In just a few hours, you can have the body you dreamed of. There is very little discomfort and most patients are back at work in 3-4 days. When diet and exercise don't work use liposuction as your secret weapon! Please see the section on PAL™power-assisted liposculpting and liposuction.
