Frequently Asked Questions About Abdominoplasty Surgery

Who is an ideal candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

  • Men and women who are looking to remove pockets of fat and loose skin in the abdomen that haven’t responded to diet and exercise
  • Women who have stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy
  • Men and women who have had significant weight loss
  • Non-Smokers
  • People in reasonably good health who have realistic expectations

What can I expect during my Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Abdominoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis by Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi in Long Island, New York. A full tummy tuck takes between two to five hours, but surgical times will vary. Surgical time for a mini or partial tummy tuck will be shorter. During surgery, muscles in the stomach are tightened and excess skin is removed through an incision placed in the pubic area near the hipbone.

What can I expect during my Tummy Tuck recovery?

After surgery, drains are inserted through the incisions to remove any excess fluids. Most excess fluid is removed in about one week. Swelling, bruising, and some discomfort is common after surgery but is controlled with pain medication. Although patients can return to work two to four weeks after surgery, it’s recommended that no strenuous activity or exercise is resumed until six to eight weeks after surgery. Patients will also have to wear a supportive garment under their clothing up to six weeks post surgery.
