Offering New York City a new gold standard.

The Abdomen of Your Dreams

While most of us have been told that diet and exercise are the best ways to enjoy a toned physique, the truth is that they might not always create the results that we would prefer. Women who have had children, in particular, may develop excess skin and a widening of the abdominal muscles, and these features may not be responsive to diet or exercise. This condition can also be caused by a life event like massive weight loss or by the simple presence of your genetic makeup. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Mark G. Albert is here to help. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, at Albert Plastic Surgery will leave you with a toned and fit appearance, boosting your confidence and enabling you to show the world your ideal look. Dr. Mark Albert, MD, FACS is a highly trained plastic surgeon who offers an array of variations on tummy tucks in NYC that enable him to remove unwanted fat and tissue, tightening your abdominal muscles and creating an attractively sculpted body contour.

When to Consider Abdominoplasty

Dr. Albert has earned his reputation as a top plastic surgeon in NYC by paying special attention to aesthetic details at all times. His approach to abdominoplasty will give you a significantly tighter belly, with incision scars that are as well-hidden as possible and that fade well over time. These details allow for great cosmetic results and a natural, attractive appearance.

Dr. Mark Albert is a board-certified surgeon who calls upon a wealth of technical knowledge and a keenly-developed artistic eye to create exciting results that address a variety of concerns. Some patients simply want to remove excess skin that is keeping them from enjoying a flat belly, while others may present lax abdominal muscles.

Sometimes these issues can be caused by a life event, like dramatic weight change or pregnancy and the childbearing process. These can cause the belly to protrude, lead to the presence of excess skin and fatty tissue, and generally disrupt your ability to enjoy an abdomen that leaves you feeling comfortable and attractive. Dr. Albert is here to help.

Dr. Albert’s Tummy Tuck Technique

During your initial consultation with Dr. Albert, he’ll talk with you about what you hope to accomplish with your tummy tuck and will work with you to develop a plan that delivers your ideal results. He will also outline things like incision placement and ways that he’ll minimize scarring, as these two factors may affect your long-term satisfaction with the procedure.

Dr. Albert works hard to ensure that your tummy tuck scar will be easily hidden once your procedure is complete. Incisions are placed low on the abdomen, where they will rarely be seen. He usually recommends that patients use silicone sheeting or another form of scar management after surgery to create a clean and unobtrusive scar.

Dr. Albert’s approach to the procedure will vary based on your specific goals. He most frequently recommends a full tummy tuck as it can provide the most significant aesthetic improvement for the widest range of patients. If you have minimal excess tissue, he may instead suggest a mini-abdominoplasty, which usually does not involve surgery above the belly button.

You’ll get to explore all of your options during your initial consultation, during which time Dr. Albert will explain the procedure to you in detail. He’ll also ensure that you have a clear idea of what you can expect from the recovery process and a clear timeline that explains when you can expect to return to your normal routine and enjoy your final results.

How the Tummy Tuck Can Help

To achieve a slim, attractive physique, many tummy tuck patients in New York City receive liposuction during the surgery. Dr. Albert can treat your flanks, mid-abdomen, and mons pubis, creating a more smooth transition to the belly. This gives your abdominal region a more aesthetically appealing and naturalistic look. Abdominoplasty is ideal for those interested in a firmer, fitter appearance.

The surgical procedure offers:

  • A more contoured abdomen
  • Removal of excess fat and skin around the belly
  • Tighter abdominal muscles 
  • A stronger core

Your Tummy Tuck Surgery Experience

Dr. Albert typically performs tummy tuck plastic surgery under general anesthesia, which ensures your safety and comfort. During your abdominoplasty procedure, Dr. Albert will:

  • Remove excess skin and fat
  • Place incisions where scars will be unnoticeable
  • Focus on creating results with a natural and symmetrical appearance
  • Conduct liposuction, if necessary, to eliminate fat and create a smooth abdominal transition

If you are having a full tummy tuck, Dr. Albert will use expert plastic surgeon techniques to fold and rejoin the abdominal muscles that have separated, creating the tightest possible contour. During your surgery, Dr. Albert may also administer a long-lasting medication that can significantly improve your comfort during the healing process.

Recovery and Results after Your Tummy Tuck

It is important to walk shortly after your tummy tuck surgery in New York. You may feel a bit hunched at the beginning, but this sense of tightness will ease as you increase your level of mobility after the procedure. You should primarily sit in a lounge or “beach chair” position for a day or two when not walking. Most patients can participate in regular activities and light exercise three weeks after their tummy tuck and return to more active exercises after about six weeks.

Dr. Albert will typically place drains during surgery to prevent fluid accumulation. When fluid buildup has reduced, you will return for a follow-up exam, during which Dr. Albert will remove the drains and make sure you are progressing well in your recovery. He will also review your scar maintenance plans and advise you as necessary. If you wish to not have drains, Dr. Albert is able and willing to do a tummy tuck without drains.

Once you have fully healed, you can expect to have a firmer abdomen and flatter belly. In most cases, results are long-lasting, but it’s worth noting that your results can be impacted by significant fluctuations in your body weight. Dr. Albert is committed to careful incision placement and always recommends effective scar healing protocols that ensure any signs of surgery will be unnoticeable and well hidden.
