At Goals Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery we work with patients from every walk of life, with every skin type, tone and texture. Each of our patients have different aesthetic goals, but one thing most men and women can agree on, is the desire for a tighter, more well-toned abdominal region. In the aesthetic industry there has been a recent trend towards less-invasive, weight-loss driven, abdominal toning procedures.However, at Goals Dr. V, many know him to be the best plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, and his staff have performed more abdominal procedures than ever before, including tightening of the abdominal wall, or a combination of liposuction and a tummy tuck.
At Goals Plastic Surgery, Dr. V, like any other plastic surgeon NYC has in practice, begins each procedure with a one-on-one patient consultation. During the consultation for any type of abdominal enhancement procedure, there are a few specific areas of interest that must be addressed in order to determine what type of procedure is right for you. The first being the quality of the skin along the abdomen. Some patients may have excess skin or loose skin, while others may have very tight, thin skin. The second is the muscle quality in the area. Some individuals may have very tight, pronounced, abdominal muscles while others may be a bit softer along the midsection. The muscle quality plays an important part of the stomach’s overall aesthetic. The final point that must be addressed is the amount of fat on or along the midsection for a patient. The amount of fat will determine whether or not you will need to add a liposuction session or some other type of weight-loss protocol. The most common types of abdominal enhancement we provide at Goals Plastic Surgery are:
Tightening of The Abdominal Wall & Tummy Tuck
Many of our patients at Goals have either experienced a massive weight loss, pregnancy, or childbirth. As a result of any of these previously firm and centralized abdominal muscles can loosen and weaken, sometimes to the point where they separate from each other. This is known as diastasis recti. Even the most intense, ab-focused workouts cannot restore their position. Diastasis recti can also occur in middle-aged and older men, especially those with abdominal obesity. When this happens, the vital organs in the area will only have a thin band of connective tissue holding them in position. Because the abdominal wall holds much of the body in position, it causes a number of other issues including back pain, constipation, urinary incontinence, problems lifting objects, and difficulty breathing. It will also cause cosmetic issue such as a bulging or protruding stomach. At Goals Plastic Surgery we perform a complete tummy tuck that tightens the muscles in a way that strengthens the abdominal wall, and removed excess skin. This firms up the stomach, and allows patients to naturally hold in their stomach muscles.
Liposuction & Tummy Tuck
For most patients at Goals, however, the major issue is loose skin along with excess fat. In the event that a patient has too much fat along their midsection, liposuction becomes necessary, in conjunction with a tummy tuck. The liposuction removes any excess fat to the patients desired level, and the tummy tuck removes any excess skin and improves the overall tightness and laxity of the stomach.
Despite being common, this procedure can prove difficult for even the best plastic surgeon NYC has in practice. Therefore, the body must be carefully analyzed on whether to perform the two procedures simultaneously or in separate stages.
