Dr. Suzman NY Plastic Surgeon Tummy Tuck with No Belly Button Scar

Procedure Details


Abdominoplasty Benefits

  • Patients with significant skin excess from pregnancy or weight changes who are bothered by the contour of the abdomen are good candidate for tummy tuck surgery
  • The goal of surgery is to restore the tone and shape of the skin and fat and muscles of the abdomen
  • Most patients feel that their core is stronger and the overall shape is improved
  • Surgery always involves some scars, and in most patients scars heal quite well.  The trade off between a flatter stomach and a long scar requires decision-making for each individual patient on whether they feel it is worth it.
  • Most patients are extremely happy with surgery results
  • It is never possible to eliminate every wrinkle of skin and every bit of fat, so results are typically much better than before surgery, but never perfect.
  • Liposuction can be done as well to help contour the abdomen hips or thighs
  • Tummy Tuck surgery is very safe in healthy people near their ideal body weight.  However, surgery is riskier with longer operations, heavier patients,  and patients with multiple medical problems
  • Discussing the risks and benefits carefully with your plastic surgeon is very important, and always choose an American Society of Plastic Surgeons member surgeon so you can be sure that your doctor has the experience and training necessary to take care of you safely and effectively.
