Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a transformative procedure that reshapes and refines the abdomen. Dr. Casian Monaco, a respected plastic surgeon based in New York City’s Upper East Side, specializes in this procedure, offering patients a path to a slimmer and firmer abdominal profile. By removing excess skin and tightening abdominal muscles, Dr. Monaco’s tummy tucks go beyond cosmetic enhancement; they’re about restoring confidence and comfort in your own skin.

Understanding the Tummy Tuck Procedure

A tummy tuck is not just about removing loose skin; it’s a comprehensive approach to reshaping the abdomen. During this procedure, Dr. Monaco skillfully removes sagging abdominal skin, while simultaneously tightening the underlying muscles. This dual approach ensures that patients don’t just see a reduction in skin laxity, but also experience a more toned and defined abdominal area.

Scars: A Concern Addressed with Care

Understanding the concerns about scarring, Dr. Monaco strategically places tummy tuck incisions in natural creases and below the bikini line, spanning from hip to hip. This placement not only facilitates easy concealment with clothing but also allows scars to remain hidden beneath underwear and swimwear. Over time, these scars fade, becoming less noticeable.

Enhancing Results with Combination Surgery

  • Liposuction: Often, a tummy tuck is performed alongside liposuction. This combination is particularly effective in removing stubborn fat deposits, like love handles, refining the overall contour of the abdomen for a more sculpted look.
  • Mommy Makeover: A popular choice for mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies, the Mommy Makeover typically combines a tummy tuck with breast surgeries. This tailored approach addresses both the abdomen and breasts, with options like a breast lift or augmentation, based on individual goals set with Dr. Monaco.

The Difference Between Abdominoplasty and Panniculectomy

While abdominoplasty focuses on cosmetic improvements, a panniculectomy, another procedure offered by Dr. Monaco, is designed to remove the overhanging “apron” of skin that can occur after significant weight loss. This procedure is often more medically oriented, aiming to relieve symptoms like skin irritation or infections under the excess skin. Patients in New York City considering either of these procedures can find comfort in Dr. Monaco’s expertise and the tailored care he provides.
