Reduce Belly Fat & Improve Diastasis Recti with a Tummy Tuck

reduce belly fat


Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a popular cosmetic surgery for reshaping and tightening the abdominal region. In addition, this surgery is perfect for transforming your midsection, providing a flatter stomach and a slimmer middle. During an Abdominoplasty, the excess abdominal skin is removed, along with underlying fat, and the muscle wall is strengthened. Tummy tucks also often include lipo on the flanks and lower back to reduce bulges of fat, such as love handles or bra bulges, and provide you with a more sculpted waistline.
Tummy tucks are perfect for healthy adults who want to improve their physique, heal diastasis recti, and restore a more fit, slim waist. The best way to determine if Abdominoplasty is the right cosmetic surgery for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Altman of Altman Aesthetics Center by calling (201) 569-3334. We proudly serve clients living in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, Purchase, NY, NYC, and surrounding areas.

The Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty Experience

Before your tummy tuck at Altman Aesthetic Centre, Dr. Altman performs a thorough physical exam and analyzes your medical history to determine if you are the best candidate for surgery. You will also speak with the doctor about your aesthetic body goals so he can better understand what you expect from a tummy tuck.

Before surgery, you will be fitted for a compression garment, which you will wear immediately following surgery.

On the day of your surgery, Dr. Altman carefully marks the amount of skin to remove and plans which areas need lipo. The surgery is performed in an outpatient setting. Depending on your body and surgery specifics, the tummy tuck usually takes 3 to 5 hours.

During the abdominoplasty, Dr. Altman also uses this time to correct diastasis recti, which women usually experience during pregnancy. He fixes the splaying of abdominal muscles and gets rid of excess skin. In addition, Dr. Altman also uses this time to address musculature and hernias. Panniculectomy is performed as needed.

Tummy tuck recovery is usually 2 to 4 weeks, depending on your procedure, and the drain usually comes out within a week. You should wear the compression garment for 6 to 8 weeks after surgery. The compression garment helps prevent fluid buildup and supports the abdomen during the healing process. It is a good idea to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks.

“it’s a huge honor to be trusted by someone…an honor that should never be taken lightly”

Most people can wear jeans about 3 to 4 weeks after their surgery. This gives ample time for the drains to be removed, the incisions to heal, and the swelling to dissipate. Leggings, loose dresses or skirts, or long-flowy tunics are excellent options until you are healed up enough to wear jeans again.
You can expect to lose between 2 to 3 pants sizes after a tummy tuck. Some people lose more. Your exact results will depend mostly on your specific body and your surgery. If you had a lot of excess skin before surgery, you could expect to lose 4 or more pants sizes. As always, individual results vary per person.*
BMIs less than 30 are ideal for tummy tuck procedures. However, you can still have the surgery if you are larger than a BMI of 30 and still have good results.
You can expect your tummy tuck or abdominoplasty to last indefinitely. The results are permanent. However, some factors can impact the longevity of your results, like excessive weight gain. Adopting healthy lifestyle habits such as eating healthy and exercising is important to ensure you don’t gain weight and obscure your tummy tuck results.
