The best candidates for abdominoplasty
The best candidates for a tummy tuck in Manhattan with plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. The tummy tuck surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved.
Abdominoplasty patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the tummy tuck surgery. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during abdominoplasty surgery can separate again during pregnancy. If you have scarring from previous abdominal surgery, Dr. Zevon may recommend against abdominoplasty or may caution you that scars could be unusually prominent.
A tummy tuck in Manhattan with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Zevon can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have tummy tuck surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with tummy tuck Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon.
