GET THE BODY YOU DESIRE WITH A TUMMY TUCK AT CROSS HUDSON

Many people are insecure with their midsection because of stubborn bulges and fat deposits. Although working out and being weary of calories helps, belly fat is challenging to eliminate. Trusted cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mordkovich of Cross Hudson Plastic Surgery often recommends a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure to patients struggling with these issues.

WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?

A tummy tuck involves a significant amount of commitment, but results in most situations are dramatic and permanent. A tummy tuck procedure involves removing excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying muscle structure to support a flatter, more evenly sculpted abdomen. Tummy Tucks or abdominoplasty may be performed alone or with liposuction to complement and maximize the results of the procedure. While not every patient can achieve the stomach they want, we tailor this procedure to your current body shape and desired look so that you’re happy with the end result.

AM I RIGHT FOR A TUMMY TUCK?

A tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) is moderately invasive. Patients need to be in good health in order to undergo this surgery. Smokers are not good candidates for this procedure since nicotine is proven to increase your risk for anesthesia-related risks and interfere with the healing. If you do smoke, you will be required to quit 3-4 weeks before your surgery date. A tummy tuck addresses the following concerns:

    A bulge around the middle that does not respond to diet and exercise
    Loose skin as a result of pregnancy or weight fluctuations
    Abdominal muscles that have stretched out and or loosened over time
    A body contour that makes you self-conscious about your appearance

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR CONSULTATION

During your first consultation, Dr. Mordkovich will get your thorough medical history while discussing your concerns and your desired results to determine whether a tummy tuck is a good choice for you.


COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT TUMMY TUCKS

Dr. Mordkovich performs tummy tuck surgeries in a New Jersey hospital. Patients go under general anesthesia. The surgery will begin by creating an incision just under the bikini line that extends from hipbone to hipbone. Through the incision, Dr. Mordkovich will have access to tighten lax abdominal muscles before removing excess tissue, fat, and skin. In some cases, liposuction may be added to your tummy tuck in order to produce additional abdominal sculpting and enhanced contouring. Dr. Mordkovich will meticulously close the incision with tiny sutures that will minimize visible scarring after the procedure.
Patients are expected to be back to light and non-strenuous activities within two to three weeks. Patients can participate in more strenuous exercise after about six weeks. Swelling may linger for a few months. However, it will continue to subside and become much less noticeable after a few weeks. Once your body is fully healed, your full results will become apparent and remain as long your weight stays stable after surgery.
