Many people struggle to achieve the mid-section they desire either due to stubborn fat or excess, sagging skin. There are a number of factors that contribute to excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. For women the primary factor is pregnancy and for other women and men a significant weight loss, as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients, can also lead to excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. Through Tummy Tuck Long Island Dr. Stephen Harris has helped many men and women achieve a smoother, tighter, more defined abdomen.
Tummy Tuck surgery (also known as Abdominoplasty) is a procedure that is performed through an incision that runs horizontally across the lower abdomen from hip to hip. It’s important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar, but also that the placement of the incision makes it easily hidden in the panty line or under swim wear. The procedure takes between two and five hours. Some patients combine Abdominoplasty with Liposuction to also remove excess fat in the area.If you are interested in learning more about this procedure and the recovery, contact our office to schedule your consultation and find out if Abdominoplasty may be right for you.
