The Ultimate Tummy Tuck
with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY
The abdomen and midsection are among the most prevalent problem areas that patients seek cosmetic surgery to correct. Sometimes liposuction or a non-surgical toning procedure can help patients reach their goals. However, for patients who have stretched abdominal muscles and skin, a surgery known as abdominoplasty, can help repair and restore a flat, strong abdomen. Dr. Scott Blyer aka DrBfixin is one of Long Island’s best cosmetic surgeons. He created his own version of abdominoplasty called the ultimate tummy tuck. Dr. B and the Cameo Plastic Surgery team provide the best ultimate tummy tuck Long Island, NY offers.
What Makes The Ultimate Tummy Tuck Different?
Which DrBfixin call as “The Ultimate Waist Snatching procedure”
Dr. B’s innovative ultimate tummy tuck takes the traditional abdominoplasty surgical technique and adds to it. The enhancements allow Dr. B to bring in the waist for a snatched waist and flat tummy. Some of the extra features of the ultimate tummy tuck include:
it is not uncommon to undergo a tummy tuck with liposuction. However, Dr. Blyer performs unlimited liposuction in the waist, abdomen, and any other pre-discussed areas. Essentially, Dr. B will perform as much liposuction as is necessary to achieve the patient’s desired results.
Side Abdominal Muscle Sutures
A traditional abdominoplasty often addresses a condition known as diastasis recti. Diastasis recti refers to the separation of the abdominal muscles from one another. This frequently occurs after pregnancy. Correcting diastasis recti usually consists of stitching the muscles back together at the midline between them. Dr. B does this, but he also places stitches on each side of the abdominal muscles which helps bring the waist in.
Natural Belly Button
During abdominoplasty surgery, the belly button may be repositioned or completely recreated. The surgical technique will necessitate the way Dr. Blyer forms the belly button. He may maintain the current belly button and place it into a more natural position on the abdomen. In contrast, he may remove the natural belly button and create a new one. Instead of adding a belly button that looks like a slit, Dr. B uses advanced techniques to ensure the patient has a belly button that looks real.
Candidates for an ultimate tummy tuck surgery likely have a significant amount of extra skin on the abdomen and may present with diastasis recti. Otherwise, patients should understand the procedure, the results they can expect, risks, and be in overall good health.
During a consultation at Cameo Plastic Surgery, Dr. Blyer will examine the patient’s anatomy, skin quality, and core strength. This will allow him to determine the right type of tummy tuck for each patient. Not every patient will need muscle plication or extensive excess skin removal. Ultimate tummy tuck patients usually benefit from both skin removal and diastasis recti correction.
Long Island Tummy Tuck Recovery
A tummy tuck Long Island recovery does require physical and mental preparation. The recovery time is usually two to three weeks before returning to work, even in sedentary positions. This is largely due to the hip-to-hip incision which requires staying hunched over to promote ideal healing. Recovering from an abdominoplasty does come with some pain and discomfort. However, Dr. Blyer will provide pain medication and the pain will get better throughout the recovery period.
To help the healing process, prevent scarring, and make the patient more comfortable, Dr. B will provide post-op and aftercare instructions. Some of these directions may include:
- Stay bent over and do not lay flat or stand straight
- Wear compression garments
- Do not drink or smoke
- Avoid unnecessarily touching the incision site
- Refrain from strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting until cleared by Dr. B
- Attend post-op appointments
- Walk a bit each day
- Do not drive until off narcotics and the incision surgical area has adequately healed
- Stay hydrated and eat well
- Get plenty of rest and do not force yourself to do anything unnecessary
Every patient will experience a slightly different ultimate tummy tuck recovery. Dr. B will guide you along the way and provide you with tips to remain comfortable and get the best results possible.
Wonder If The Ultimate Tummy Tuck Works The Best For You?
No, it is true that the ultimate tummy tuck surgery was created to have a waist-cinching effect in line with the ideal hourglass figure for a woman. However, a man can still benefit from the procedure. The stitches on the sides of the abdominal muscles are optional and Dr. B will customize the abdominoplasty procedure to fit all of his patients regardless of their gender.
In general, women make up the majority of tummy tuck patients because pregnancy causes the perfect conditions for extra, loose skin and separated muscles to form. However, an increasing number of men are undergoing tummy tucks to address extra skin that may gather due to age, weight changes, or after undergoing bariatric surgery.
In theory, tummy tuck results are permanent. However, if there are major weight changes or pregnancy after a tummy tuck, this can cause more extra skin to form or the muscles to become slack again. Therefore, Dr. B recommends that all of his patients are at a stable weight and have finished growing their families before seeking abdominoplasty surgery.
A tummy tuck is not designed specifically to make a patient look thinner. With that said, most patients will look noticeably thinner after an ultimate tummy tuck. Though, it can take a few months for the skin and tissues to settle and the swelling to subside. Do not be alarmed if at first, the stomach does not look completely flat. It is probably normal swelling and can take several weeks to go away.
It depends. Sometimes Dr. B will maintain the natural belly button and simply reposition it on the new abdomen. Other times, he will completely remove the belly button and create a new one. However, Dr. B takes the time and precision to make the new belly button look natural.
Dr. Blyer can also make changes to the belly button at the same time as abdominoplasty surgery. For example, reshaping or resizing the belly button if desired, regardless of the type of tummy tuck.
An ultimate tummy tuck cost Long Island by the world-famous DrBfixin is $18,999. This includes the facility, anesthesia, supplies, and compression garment costs. The exact cost may fluctuate if there are added procedures or extensive liposuction.
