Have you recently lost a large amount of weight? Oftentimes, we see both male and female patients struggling with excess skin and a looseness of the abdominal muscles after losing weight. If you are one of those individuals, Dr. George Lefkovits wants you to know that there is hope. At Park Plaza Plastic Surgery, we often perform abdominoplasties, often referred to as a tummy tuck, on a regular basis. The tummy tuck tightens the muscles and removes excess skin from the abdomen. In some cases, our plastic surgeon may also be able to remove some stretch marks from the abdomen. Dr. Lefkovits performs abdominoplasty procedures in New York, New York, helping patients across the country feel more confident in their appearance.
If you are interested in finding out if a tummy tuck is right for you, call our office at (212) 750-9494. Our plastic surgeon would love to help you feel more confident and secure in your self-image.
THE MALE ABDOMINOPLASTY OPERATION
The male abdominoplasty operation is usually performed in Dr. George Lefkovits‘s Manhattan accredited certified operating facility, but in some cases, it may be performed in the hospital. An overnight stay is not required.
The surgery is performed through a lower abdominal incision, which is usually hidden. The navel is brought out through a new opening. The abdominoplasty may be combined with other operations such as liposuction to provide patients with a flat, firm abdomen.
TUMMY TUCK FOR MEN — POST-OPERATIVE COURSE
After your tummy tuck procedure, it is important that you rest. For four to six weeks, you will wear a light garment, avoiding strenuous activity throughout this process of healing. Patients may return to work in one to two weeks.
Dr. Lefkovits has often been featured in magazines and newspapers and has appeared on radio and television. Some examples include the Larry King Live Radio and Good Day New York.
