Tummy Tuck in New York
Dr. Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. , board certified in both plastic surgery and general surgery and dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care, offers labiaplasty to the residents of New York and the surrounding Tri-State area.
Before Tummy Tuck
Most people want to feel as though they could slip into a bathing suit at a moment’s notice and proudly flaunt their toned figure. However, many men and women struggle with loose skin and fat deposits in the abdominal area. If you are one of them, consider abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, in New York City with Dr. Richard Swift.
What Can Abdominoplasty Accomplish?
Abdominoplasty effectively slims and tones the midsection by removing excess fat and tightening the underlying musculature. It is not a weight loss procedure, however, and, therefore, will not significantly reduce the patient’s body weight.
After Tummy Tuck
Good Tummy Tuck Candidates
We encourage women who plan to become pregnant to delay tummy tuck surgery until after they are done having children as pregnancy can reverse the effects of the surgery. Dr. Swift will sit down with every candidate during the initial consultation and determine whether the patient’s goals are realistic and reasonable. If they are not, he is unlikely to recommend abdominoplasty as an appropriate choice.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Swift will make two incisions; the first extends from hipbone to hipbone, close to the pubic area, and the second goes around the belly button. He will separate the skin from the abdominal muscles. The muscles are tightened and stitched into place to firm the abdomen and narrow the waist. Then Dr. Swift stretches the skin flap down, removes excess skin, and stitches the incisions closed. The belly button is reattached in a natural position. The sutured areas are bandaged.
Recovering from Abdominoplasty
You will most likely feel sore, swollen, and bruised after surgery. This lasts for a few days, and the swelling should completely dissipate within a few weeks. During this time, we encourage you to avoid any bending or heavy lifting, which can disrupt the healing process. Gentle walking is permitted, but please refrain from strenuous exercise until Dr. Swift clears you. Your full recovery could take up to a few months, but you’ll be able to return to work within a week to 10 days.
How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost in New York?
The price of a tummy tuck will vary depending on the extent of surgery necessary to achieve the desired stomach appearance. Dr. Swift accepts CareCredit® as a financing option.
