For many patients, this surgical procedure is an attractive option to correct and restore the body’s anatomy that has been altered from pregnancy or dramatic weight gain. Depending upon the patient’s needs, Dr. Arnold Breitbart will perform surgery on any of the three layers of the abdominal wall and in some cases, all three for
abdominoplasty. Long Island
patients meet with Dr. Arnold Breitbart in an initial consultation to assess their personal goals, medical history, lifestyle, and determine the best method for their desired outcome. Men and women in good health who have either experienced weight gain or loss cycles, have sagging or stretched skin in the abdominal region, or are unable to lose the weight through diet and exercise are the best candidates for tummy tucks. Long Island
patients who are not at their ideal weight can receive liposuction to remove excess fat and enable abdominoplasty to be conducted faster.
During a Mommy Makeover, Dr. Breitbart performs both breast procedures and tummy tucks. Long Island patients will receive liposculpting as well to enhance body contours and remove the effects of pregnancy on the body. During a Menopausal Makeover, Dr. Arnold Breitbart shapes the body to remove anatomical changes from menopause and also offers a comprehensive diet and exercise program to ensure optimal results.
Surgery is conducted in an accredited outpatient facility for abdominoplasty. Long Island
patients receive general or local anesthesia for abdominoplasty. Long Island patients generally receive incisions in the groin area. Dr. Arnold Breitbart lifts the skin, exposing the layer of muscle underneath and then redrapes the skin after removing excess skin and fat during abdominoplasty. Long Island patients wear a compressive garment to protect the body after surgery. In some cases, liposculpting is also performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty. Long Island
patients should avoid strenuous work or exercise for a period of eight weeks after tummy tucks. Long Island
patients of Dr. Arnold Breitbart can enjoy long lasting and desirable results visible within four to six weeks after surgery.
