Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD near Manhattan is a plastic surgeon ready to assist patients in achieving more attractive bodies. He understands that the imperfections of the body can make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may shy away from situations where they wear less clothing, such as swimsuits. Some patients just want to feel better in their own skin. When they visit a plastic surgeon, they are often introduced to a wide variety of procedures that can enhance their natural body contours in a more natural, attractive manner.
Patients near Manhattan who are unhappy with extra fat and skin around the abdominal area are often encouraged to learn about mid-section procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks. Both can be combined to achieve optimum results. Our practice offers a treatment referred to as a mini tummy tuck (often referred to as a partial abdominoplasty) and is done for patients who have minor skin laxity and fat deposits in the area. Most often it is done when patients have an accumulation of fat and skin underneath the navel, which typically develops due to fluctuations in weight, including pregnancy.
The mini tummy tuck is less invasive and less expensive than a full tummy tuck. It is done as outpatient surgery and can be much more affordable than more traditional methods of achieving a flatter stomach. It requires less downtime and faster recovery, making it a perfect option for patients with mild fat deposits and skin laxity. Patients will have a short recovery time of just a few weeks, and will be able to enjoy a slimmer belly area.
