Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)
Pregnancies or appreciable weight loss can result in sagging of the abdominal skin and weakening of the abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. Through this process, some stretch marks can also be removed.

The operation is usually performed in Dr. George Lefkovits’ Manhattan accredited and certified operating facility, but in some cases, it may be performed in a hospital. An overnight stay is not required. A tummy tuck can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, but it also produces a permanent scar that can extend from hip to hip.
Women with children know that pregnancy can cause many changes in the body. Some of those changes are temporary, but many of them leave lasting effects, including separation and weakening of the abdominal muscles. Dr. Lefkovits can remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen while also tightening muscles on the abdominal wall. If you are frustrated with your current figure, Dr. George Lefkovits can talk to you about your options, helping you determine if a tummy tuck is a procedure you need to improve your appearance.
A tummy tuck may also be the right solution for you after:
Through the natural process of weight gain, weight loss and aging, your abdominal muscles stretch. When these muscles get stretched beyond their elastic limits, they oftentimes cannot regain their original shape, leading to a droopy-looking stomach. Tummy tucks help you achieve a smoother, thinner stomach that looks natural and healthy. This treatment may also help speed the process of repairing abdominal muscles after weight gain.
Before your procedure, you will meet with our friendly plastic surgeon for a consultation appointment. This consultation is the time for you to ask any questions you may have about your tummy tuck and get to know our plastic surgeon. We will also discuss your expectations and goals during this appointment to ensure you get the best possible treatment plan for your body.
