About Tummy Tuck Surgery
Whether you are a new mom, have recently lost a significant amount of weight, or are older and are noticing loose skin in the abdominal area, diet and exercise alone may not be enough to achieve the toned abs you desire. At Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, we offer abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, which removes loose skin around the lower abdomen, and tightens the underlying tissue and muscle for a tighter skin appearance. This surgery can often be the ideal treatment to remove the stubborn pouch on the abdominal wall that won’t go away regardless of proactive attempts. During a private consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, we will provide a thorough assessment and determine if liposuction alone is all that is needed, or if a tummy tuck will provide the best results.
Tummy tuck surgery is life changing for most of our patients who have had the procedure. The ideal candidates for this dramatic transformation are:
- Women who have C-section scars and/or extra skin and fat deposits in the lower abdomen
- Men and women who have stretch marks and loose skin on their abdomen
- Men and women who have had weight loss surgery and have maintained their goal weight for at least a year and desire removal of the excess skin and remaining fat deposits

What to Expect
Tummy tuck patients usually have the procedure in an accredited outpatient surgical facility; however, when the tummy tuck is combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be required. Some tummy tucks are more invasive than others, for example, some individuals may be candidates for a mini tummy tuck, while others may need an extensive approach. The procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and can take anywhere between 2 – 4 hours depending on the nature of the surgical case. After surgery, patients will be placed in a compression garment and will be discharged to rest at home. Tummy tuck surgery requires a slow approach to recover and it's important to note that a complete recovery may take up to 6 weeks or longer.
The results following a tummy tuck procedure equate to a tighter, more toned abdominal appearance. Scarring is a part of this procedure; however, our skillfully trained cosmetic surgeon creates the incisions with care, placing them in inconspicuous areas so that undergarments can hide them. Patients often feel that the skin removal and flat appearance of their stomach far outweighs any scarring that resides after surgery.
