Dr. Daniel Kaufman, along with our Board-certified anesthesiologists, performs the surgery under general anesthesia to numb away pain during the operation. This is not always the case, and in some instances that a different type of anesthesia must be used, let our doctor help you decide.
Is the procedure painful?
This is among the most widely asked questions asked by patients who wish to have it with us. Led by Dr. Kaufman, our team utilizes new techniques to minimize possible pain a patient may encounter during the procedure. They have adopted measures that ease possible pain.
The surgery may definitely cause some discomfort but undergoing into a tummy tuck nowadays is way less painful than having it decades ago. Some swelling and pain can be experienced during recovery, but we are providing solutions to cancel these out as much as possible.
How does Dr. Kaufman conduct a tummy tuck?
Well-trained in the field for many years, Dr. Kaufman uses top-notch techniques backed by the recent studies. Fat and excess skins from the lower abdominal wall are removed through incisions. Scars are kept below the line of the bikini for you to show off results with no flaws.
Depending on your situation, the abdominal muscles may or may not be done. Moreover, other procedures such as liposuction may be combined with tummy tuck, if the operative plan suggests so.
Better curves with lateral tension abdominoplasty
Dr. Kaufman also specializes in lateral tension abdominoplasty, a revolutionary type of tummy tuck that uses surgical alterations of the flanks to help contour the hips and waist better. This technique highlights the womanly curves of your abdomen and flanks. Though it gives better results, this type of procedure requires more healing time because of wider scars.
Lateral tension abdominoplasty is first introduced in the 1990s and is used for patients who exhibit great skin excess in the lateral areas after pregnancy or weight loss. Our doctor will help you decide the most recommended technique for optimum results.
