Tummy tuck plastic surgery is offered at our best in class Upper East Side plastic surgery practice by our Ivy League trained board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Umbareen Mahmood. Dr. Mahmood specializes in tummy tuck procedures. She is well known and respected for her work in tummy tuck plastic surgery. The Upper East Side plastic surgeon is one of the top tummy tuck plastic surgeons in Manhattan. Dr. Mahmood employs the latest techniques and technology to give her patients the best possible outcome with strategically placed incisions to prevent unsightly scarring.
Tummy tuck plastic surgery as performed by Dr. Mahmood is a surgical procedure to improve the fat, skin and muscle of the abdomen. Also known as an abdominoplasty, this procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, repairs the abdominal wall (diastasis recti). Patients often experience a dramatic improvement with little pain and downtime. Frequently patients combine a tummy tuck with fat transfer.
“My experience with Dr. Mahmood was incredible! I am 46 years old and after losing over 100lbs through weight loss surgery, I ended up with too much excess skin. Because of this she suggested a tummy tuck with liposuction. She gave me the best tummy tuck results I have ever seen! I am beyond happy and amazed with the results! Dr. Mahmood is the best doctor in NYC and she listened to all of my questions and concerns. She was so sweet and caring along with her staff and assistant! I trust being in her hands for any future surgeries.” ~ RealSelf
A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal wall and removes excess skin and fat. Patients may consider the procedure after weight loss and gain, pregnancy, prior surgery, genetics, or other significant weight fluctuations. For women who have previously had a C-section, Dr. Mahmood will remove their existing scar and replace it with a thin, fine, more cosmetically pleasing scar hidden in the bikini line.
Results of a tummy tuck are immediate and improvements will continue over the next several weeks as the swelling resolves. Most patients can return to work in just 1 week!
Many patients consider tummy tuck plastic surgery if they have:
- Excess skin around the bellybutton
- Weak lower abdominal wall
- Liposuction did not improve the appearance of the abdomen
- Retracted scarring of a prior C-section or surgical scar
- Loose skin after bariatric surgery
- Excess abdominal fat/skin
A tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction to achieve optimal results. A tummy tuck with liposuction of the waist may provide the patient with a better contour of the abdominal area. A tummy tuck can also be performed with other cosmetic procedures like breast surgery and labiaplasty.
