Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgeon Florham Park NJ

A Trimmer, Tighter Tummy

Sometimes even diligent exercise and diet do little to reduce the sides of the abdominal area. A protruding or sagging abdomen can be a major cause of self-consciousness or discomfort. Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a solution offered at New Jersey-based Northeastern Plastic Surgery in Florham Park. Whether you have recently lost a lot of weight, were pregnant, or just want a flatter, more toned midsection, Dr. Joseph Fodero can re-contour your abdomen and give you the results you crave with a tummy tuck.

Our patients leave our practice with a new lease on life after receiving a tummy tuck. Contact our practice in New Jersey today to schedule a private, one-on-one consultation if you are considering abdominoplasty. Dr. Fodero is on-hand to help patients determine whether they are candidates, and how best to move forward with treatment.

Procedure

After a consultation with Dr. Fodero that outlines the cosmetic surgery plan that is just right for you, the procedure is performed using a general anesthetic. A discreet incision is made in the lower abdomen, and the abdominal muscles are tightened in order to reduce the size of the waistline and create a more toned look. The skin is stretched and smoothed, with any excess skin removed.

Sutures are used to close the incision, and Dr Fodero will give you the information you need to help you through the recovery period. There are many aesthetic benefits to the tummy tuck procedure, and abdominoplasty risks are minimal. Please feel free to browse the rest of this website for more information, and remember that a consultation with Dr. Fodero is the best way to decide whether tummy tuck is for you.

Candidates

Which Patients Make Good Tummy Tuck Candidates?

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is one of the most sought after types of cosmetic surgery. Still, some people make better tummy tuck candidates than others. New Jersey-based Northeastern Plastic Surgery in Florham Park, led by Dr. Joseph Fodero, is a highly regarded practice with an exceptional staff that can help you determine whether you are a candidate for tummy tuck benefits. If you would like further information about how we determine suitable tummy tuck candidates, contact Dr. Fodero in New Jersey today to schedule a private, one-on-one consultation.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

The best tummy tuck candidates are in overall good physical shape, but with excess abdominal skin that does not respond to regular exercise and dieting. Suitable tummy tuck candidates include those who have recently lost a significant amount of weight or who were recently pregnant. Often in these cases, the skin and muscles in the abdominal area have lost enough elasticity that exercise does little to promote a flatter tummy. Older patients in good health can also be great tummy tuck candidates.

Ideal tummy tuck candidates are also well informed about the procedure, which requires a private consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Fodero is on hand to help our patients understand tummy tuck risks and benefits before deciding to proceed with surgery. It is also important that tummy tuck candidates have reasonable expectations of the surgery. A consultation can also let you know what you can expect to gain from abdominoplasty.

FAQs

Answers to Commonly Asked Questions about Abdominoplasty

At Northeastern Plastic Surgery, we receive many questions regarding abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. We have compiled answers to some of the most commonly asked questions below. If you have further questions after reading this tummy tuck FAQ, please contact our New Jersey cosmetic surgery practice to schedule an appointment with Dr. Joseph Fodero.

What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat tissue are removed from the abdominal area. The abdominal muscles are tightened, providing a trimmer, fitter look. Often, stretch marks and other skin imperfections can be removed during this procedure.

Who gets tummy tuck?

The best tummy tuck candidates are healthy people with excess skin or a protruding belly that is resistant to dieting or exercise. Often, candidates were recently pregnant or have lost a lot of weight. People considering tummy tuck should have realistic expectations about what this procedure can do for them.

Is anesthesia used during tummy tuck?

General anesthesia is typically used during tummy tuck surgery. Dr. Fodero can discuss what that entails with you prior to the surgery.

Are there scars from tummy tuck surgery?

Tummy tuck does require some incisions that cause some scarring. Dr. Fodero is careful to place incisions along the bikini line in order to make scarring as discreet and easy to hide as possible.

When will I be able to return to work?

This will depend on how strenuous your job is. Most of our patients are able to return to work after a two-week tummy tuck recovery period. If your work requires a lot of physical activity, it may be more than four weeks before you can expect to return.

How long can I expect the results to last?

With proper diet and exercise, you can enjoy the results of your tummy tuck for years to come. This is one of the longer-lasting cosmetic procedures, and most of our patients are very satisfied with their results. Getting pregnant after tummy tuck surgery can limit its longevity.

Recovery

Supporting Our Patients from the Initial Consultation to the Final Result

As with any surgical procedure, abdominoplasty patients should anticipate a certain amount of tummy tuck recovery time. At New Jersey-based Northeastern Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joseph Fodero and our team of exceptional nurses work tirelessly to provide the safest and most effective care possible, with a minimum amount of discomfort. This care proceeds through the tummy tuck recovery period as well, as the body works to heal properly.

If you want to learn more about tummy tuck recovery, contact our practice in New Jersey today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fodero.

Tummy Tuck Recovery

Tummy tuck recovery can last for up to 12 days. This healing period varies from patient to patient, depending on lifestyle, type of employment, body type, and other factors. There may be some minor swelling of the abdomen during the first few days. Any aches can be easily mitigated with medication that is provided by Dr. Fodero. During these first days, you should remain at rest to avoid any discomfort or complications.

During the healing period, it is important that you follow all of Dr. Fodero’s instructions carefully in order to make a smooth and safe tummy tuck recovery more likely. You should be able to engage in light exercise such as brisk strolls after approximately seven days. This can help with the healing process. Any exercise, however, should be approved by Dr. Fodero, as more strenuous exercise can do more harm than good. Most of our patients complete their tummy tuck recovery feeling better and more confident than they have in years.

Risks

Be Fully Informed about the Risks of Abdominoplasty

tummy-tuck-risksAlthough it is a tried-and-true, safe procedure, as with any surgical procedure, there are some tummy tuck risks. The doctors at New Jersey-based Northeastern Plastic Surgery in Florham Park know the importance of keeping their patients informed enough to make a balanced decision about whether a tummy tuck is right for them. Most tummy tuck risks can be greatly reduced or eliminated altogether when the procedure is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Joseph Fodero, as well as through careful adherence to his post-operative instructions.

To learn more about tummy tuck risks, contact our New Jersey cosmetic surgery practice today to schedule a private, one-on-one consultation. We will help you to determine whether you are a viable tummy tuck candidate, as well as what kinds of benefits you can expect to receive from the procedure.

Tummy Tuck Risks

There are risks involved in any surgical procedure. While Dr. Fodero and our staff work tirelessly to make every procedure as safe as possible, it is still prudent to be aware of tummy tuck risks when considering the treatment. Such risks include complications due to anesthetics, infection, blood clots, and complications that may arise during the recovery process. These risks are highly unlikely, and can be lessened with careful attention to your health and the advice of your surgeon. People who have preexisting conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes, are more susceptible to tummy tuck risks and may therefore be unsuitable candidates for the procedure. It is also wise to refrain from unhealthy activities such as smoking or excessive alcohol use.
