Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgeon NYC


There’s a variety of tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedures that can be performed on men and women by the NYC Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS. Each tummy tuck plastic surgery is designed to treat a specific set of patient’s needs and all tummy tuck plastic surgery operations are custom to the patient.

The type of tummy tuck plastic surgery procedure that the NYC Plastic Surgeon will perform will be based on your specific anatomic features and ultimately your desired outcome. Though all tummy tuck plastic surgeries tighten the abdominal skin there are two major differences between the various types of tummy tuck procedures which include: the incision length (this will vary depending on the amount of skin to be removed) and whether or not the abdominal muscles are going to be tightened.

The length of the incision made during the Tummy Tuck surgery by the NYC plastic surgeon is determined by the amount of loose skin that is available to be removed (because every body is different). The incision lengths vary from as short o as long and the plastic surgeon will explain the incision length that is necessary for your custom procedure with you during your complimentary consultation. The most common tummy tuck incision length runs from hip to hip (in both men and women) and is concealed beneath the bikini line (in women if a full or Traditional Tummy Tuck). Scaring inevitably will become imperceptible if you follow the plastic surgeon’s aftercare precisely and you can discuss this with Dr. Senderoff during your complimentary tummy tuck consultation.

In addition to removing loose skin and tightening your tummy (for a flat tummy), fat deposits can also be removed during your abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) plastic surgery by the NYC Plastic Surgeon. It is recommended, however, that you be as close as possible to your ideal weight before having the procedure. If your concerns extend beyond the tummy, the Manhattan, New York Plastic Surgeon can safely combine a customized liposuction procedure with your tummy tuck for more dramatic results. Liposuction with a Tummy Tuck is a very popular procedure and is very safe to be performed simultaneously.

Who would benefit from a tummy tuck performed by the NYC Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS?

  • Patients with stretched abdominal skin and excess fat. Many of the NYC Plastic Surgeon’s patients state that they tried exercising and dieting with no improvement in the appearance of the abdomen (tummy).
  • Patients who after losing weight have a significant amount of loose skin that does not shrink.
  • Women after pregnancy with excess fat in the abdominal area and stretched / protruding abdomen which does not improve with exercises.
  • Patients with stretch marks in the lower abdomen with loose skin.

The Tummy Tuck plastic surgery procedure is performed on an outpatient basis at the Plastic Surgeon’s fully accredited surgical suite on Park Avenue South, in NYC; and usually takes from one to two hours. Recovery to most activity (not strenuous) is approximately one week. Serious strenuous abdominal exercise is usually resumed in 3-4 weeks.

If you have any questions about abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or any other plastic surgery procedures, or would like a complimentary tummy tuck consultation with the Manhattan / NYC Plastic Surgeon, please feel free to make a complimentary consultation.
