4 reasons why you should consider a tummy tuck

Even with the best diet and exercise program, that extra pooch and stretched skin in the tummy area won’t go away. Now is the time to consider tummy tuck surgery, which creates a smoother, firmer abdominal profile by removing excess fat and skin and repositioning stretched and separated muscles in the abdominal wall. Here are four reasons why you should consider a tummy tuck.

You are done with childbearing. Often, pregnancy can wreak havoc on a woman’s body, and the stretched skin in the abdominal area doesn’t bounce back as you would’ve hoped. If you’re planning future pregnancies, you will want to hold off on a tummy tuck because it could negate your surgical results.

You have lost weight. For men and women alike who have lost a significant amount of weight, removing the excess skin has both aesthetic and functional appeal, as they want to show off their new contours and get rid of skin that’s getting in their way.

A tummy tuck can be done simultaneously with other procedures. Often a tummy tuck is accompanied by liposuction to get rid of excess fat in the abdominal area. A tummy tuck is also an integral part of what’s called a “Mommy Makeover,” and combined with a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift, and liposuction. This all-encompassing surgery is an increasingly popular choice among women who want one recovery period instead of separate ones spread out over several months or years.

You’ll see immediate results. After surgery, you will notice initial results that improve even more as swelling subsides. After several months, you’ll see full results once the swelling has ended.

A tummy tuck can provide long-lasting results if you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle after surgery. To learn more about a tummy tuck and to see if you’re a candidate, call our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.

Feel more confident and comfortable with breast reduction surgery

Women who have large, pendulous breasts complain about the pain these cause in the back, neck and shoulders. They may experience deep grooves in the skin from bra straps, skin irritations under the breasts and poor posture from the weight of the breasts. If you’ve been plagued with excessively large breasts, breast reduction is a surgery with high patient satisfaction and patients who say they wish they had done it sooner. Here’s more information on how breast reduction surgery is performed.

Am I a candidate for surgery?

In addition to the problems mentioned above, women who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too large or that they limit your physical activity will benefit from surgery. If your breasts hang low and you have stretched skin, if your nipples rest below the breast crease when your breasts are unsupported or you have enlarged areolas, you are a candidate for surgery. You need to be physically healthy, don’t smoke and have realistic expectations for surgical outcomes.

What to expect during surgery

During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Weinstein removes fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts to make them smaller, lighter and firmer. Large areolae will be reduced to make them proportional to the new breast size.

There are various options for incision, and Dr. Weinstein uses the smallest possible incision to achieve the best results. Once the incisions are made, the nipple is then repositioned, and the areolas are reduced in size. The nipples remain tethered to their original blood and nerve supply during this entire time. In some cases, the nipples and surrounding areolas are removed and moved to a higher position on the breast.

During surgery, Dr. Weinstein removes excess breast tissue and lifts and reshapes the remaining tissue. Sutures are placed deep within the breast tissue to support their new shape. The incisions are closed with skin adhesives and sutures. Scars from incision lines will fade and improve in appearance over time.

This surgery can be life-changing for women, as they will see the results and feel relief immediately. To learn more and to see if you’re a candidate for breast reduction surgery, call our office today at (908) 879-2222 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.
