Tummy Tuck For A Smaller, Flatter, Tighter Abdomen

Tummy Tucks acheive smaller tighter, leaner and flatter stomach and a smaller waistline. Joel R. Studin, MD, FACS has vast experience in tummy tuck surgery, done in his accredited Ambulatory Surgery Facilityattached to his office at his offices in New York. Choosing a tummy tuck surgeon requires careful consideration. Dr. Studin is an expert in abdominoplasty and has done hundreds, helping both men and women solve problems that deit and exercise cannot. He uses only the latest techniques in obtaining the most firm, flat, and smooth stomach possible.

Dr. Studin often combines this procedure with breast surgery, called a mommy makeover. Laser Liposuction is almost always a part of this procedure to achieve the best shape possible.


Dr. Studin does tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedures for patients seeking a tighter, flatter and smaller sculpted figure around their waist and stomach. Patients left with excess, loose skin around their midsection following childbirth or weight loss find it impossible to eliminate the unwanted skin and fat on their own. Dr. Studin removes the excess, and tightens the muscles, to help patients achieve beautiful, curvy, contours.

Things to Consider Prior to Undergoing Procedure

Men and women who have loose skin and fat that does not respond to diet and exercise will often seek a Tummy Tuck. Ideal patients have lost skin elasticity and have excessive hanging skin due to weight fluctuation, or childbirth. The extra skin is almost always resistant to diet and exercise. Tummy Tuck patients should be close to ideal weight if possible, although, we know that some people are stable at a higher weight despite best efforts. Often, those patients can also be helped. In most cases, women who are not be planning to have any more children are the best candidates, but there are exceptions to this as well. Dr. Studin also performs mini tummy tucks on those patients who have a problem only in the lower part of their abdomen.

The results of this procedure are almost immediate and you will see your tighter, firmer stomach that day. Unless you gain excessive weight, your new shape will be long lasting. There will be a permanent scar just above your pubic area that will fade over time and a cicle at the edge of your belly button. The scar can usually be easily hidden under a bathing suit and clothing.


More About the Procedure

Dr. Studin will discuss the entire tummy tuck surgery, go over photos of past patients with you and answer any questions that you may have until you feel completely comfortable with the procedure. Your tummy tuck will be performed in Dr. Studin’s Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Facility. You will be taken care of by a team of specially trained nurses in this field.

What to Expect in Recovery

You can elect to go home a few hours after the procedure or stay overnight with one of Dr. Studin’s nurses. Most go home and come back the next day, but you can make that decision. There will be special garments that will help keep you comfortable. You should have minimal or no pain during recovery due to long-acting local anesthesia and a sophisticated regimen of medication. Nurses and Dr. Studin are there to help you whenever you have questions, both before and after your procedure.


During Your Tummy Tuck Consultation

Dr. Studin will spend a great deal of time with you discussing whether tummy tuck surgery is a good idea for you or whether you might be a candidate for Laser Liposuction instead. He will examine you and will show pre-operative and post-operative pictures of his patients who have had tummy tucks.
