Tired of fad diets? Are those gym classes not working off your weight fast and effectively enough? You are not alone! Many women have done all the right things and still have a flabby tummy! If this is your story, it may be time to consider the Tummy Tuck procedure (Abdominoplasty). There are many causes for loss of tightness in our midsections. Weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy and even just getting older. And some individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. Why be self-conscious about your body when Dr. Danovich can get you bikini ready! Dr. Svetlana Danovich knows a flat and well-toned abdomen is something many women strive for through exercise and weight control. She is also very aware that sometimes these methods cannot achieve a person’s goals.
The most common causes of this include:
- Prior surgery.
- Significant fluctuations in weight.
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, behind breast enhancements and the Brazilian butt lift, is the Tummy Tuck. Dr. Danovich performs beautiful abdominoplasty procedures, which are considered the ultimate solution for removing excess fat, loose or sagging skin and tightening the muscle of the abdominal wall. Getting your abs back might be closer than you think. The Tummy Tuck is one of the most effective methods to achieving the tight and firm look a modern woman desires.
Dr. Danovich has two options with her Tummy Tucks:
- Full Tummy Tuck.
- Mini Tummy Tuck.
Full vs Mini. A Full Tummy Tuck does require a greater incision area than the mini in order to achieve its dramatic results. A Full Tummy Tuck also corrects the area above as well as below the belly button down to the bikini line whereas the mini focuses on the area below the navel. More specifically, the full abdominoplasty will create a scar that extends from hip to hip and a scar around the belly button, as the Full Tummy Tuck does entail a repositioning of the navel. The Mini Tummy Tuck uses a lesser incision than the full, and doesn’t involve the movement of the belly button. Liposuction is used in conjunction with either procedure.
Many are drawn to the mini due to the smaller incision, however, keep in mind that the minor procedure will produce less impressive results. The Mini Tummy Tuck does not treat the upper abdomen at all. Though many may not need a full abdominoplasty and the mini handles a lot of her patient’s desires.
How it works. To give a woman the figure she is dreaming of, New York top surgeon Dr. Danovich creates perfect incisions from the patient’s abdomen to hipbone; contours the skin and uses her signature technique to perfectly align the inner muscles. Additionally, it is not uncommon for Dr. Danovich to perform liposuction for additional shaping and removal of fat deposits to enhance the perfect waist. As the Full Tummy Tuck surgery involves repositioning the belly button, Dr. Danovich also creates a new, perfectly placed and aesthetically divine belly button. Many who meet with the doctor are concerned with this element of the procedure, but Dr. Danovich is highly skilled in this area and her patients are amazed at how natural their navel looks and have the confidence to wear hip hugger jeans with a crop top. Dr. Danovich is a first-rate cosmetic surgeon and has performed countless successful Tummy Tuck procedures.
Surgery. Dr. Danovich uses a lateral tension abdominal technique. The surgery takes about two to three hours and the results are immediate. Patients experience smooth and flat tummies, and need at least a week of down time. They may experience discomfort up to approximately seven days. Muscle tightness and discomfort may continue for a few weeks as their body begins to reveal its new shape.
Dr. Danovich follows up surgery with Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is a powerful “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and cytokines which stimulates tissue regeneration, collagen synthesis and angiogenesis. This helps with the healing process. “Training and knowledge is critical in providing the various applications of PRP,” explains Dr. Danovich. A surgeon trained in the PRP procedures can improve the shape and healing for the patient for excellent results. Dr. Danovich provides the additional PRP treatment at no additional cost which is why she is one of the most sought after surgeons for the Tummy Tuck procedure. Dr. Danovich follows up with an additional PRP treatment 6 weeks after surgery plus micro needling in order to speed healing and minimize scar appearance. She is always viewing each patient with the expertise of a world class physician and the eye of an artist!
The benefits. Having a Tummy Tuck has significant benefits – you’ll be bikini ready in two months. And the best part is many patients drop anywhere from 10-35 pounds after surgery. One last perk, the youthful tightness of a tummy tuck reduces a patient’s appetite. Dr. Danovich has performed numerous Tummy Tuck surgeries with exquisite results. She likes to tell her patients, “The fact is you don’t have to live with a figure you aren’t happy with.”
What a Tummy Tuck won't do:
- A Tummy Tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program.
- Although the results of a Tummy Tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in a person’s weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies would be advised to postpone a Tummy Tuck.
- A Tummy Tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised.
