Combat Excess Fat and Skin in the Abdominal Area with a Tummy Tuck Procedure
- Posted on: Jul 15 2019
Patients in the area of Huntington Station, NY who are unhappy with the appearance of their midsection due to excess fat and/or skin are welcome to speak to a professional about surgical interventions like the tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck, or “abdominoplasty,” is a specialized cosmetic procedure that allows Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee to remove fat and excess skin while also restoring weak or separated muscles to improve the appearance of the abdominal area.
While many patients want to enjoy a well-toned abdominal area, diet and exercise may not always provide the results they desire. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can address these specific concerns. Even patients who have successfully lost weight may notice excess skin in the area that sags and increases the risk of infections within these folds. By performing a tummy tuck, any excess fat can be removed and the excess skin can be cut away. While this is a surgical procedure that can result in scarring, experienced plastic surgeons will take great care in making incisions in areas that are less noticeable. For example, most tummy tuck procedures result in scarring that is often covered by a swimsuit, allowing patients to feel confident even when enjoying summer vacation!
Who is a candidate for a tummy tuck?
Tummy tucks can be performed on most healthy adults who are struggling with excess fat and/or skin that cannot be effectively addressed with diet and exercise alone. This cosmetic procedure is known as an “elective” treatment that is not covered by health insurance. Fortunately, Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee and her team offer special financing solutions to make this treatment affordable and attainable for those on a tighter budget. Determining candidacy can be done during a consultation visit.
