Restoring tone and contour to your belly after pregnancy or significant weight loss can be one of the most challenging feats for anyone to accomplish. Even if you’ve done your share of sit-ups and cardio to whittle your midsection, Dr. Theodore Diktaban and his outstanding team offer men and women in New York City a surefire way to abolish belly fat. Learn why, even with other procedures available today, a tummy tuck is still the best way to lose that excess fat from your midsection.

Medical benefits abound
You may be seeking a tummy tuck to improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence after pregnancy or weight loss, and while those are wonderful benefits, a tummy tuck goes beyond aesthetics.
Stronger abdominal muscles
Abdominoplasty (the medical term for a tummy tuck) repairs your stomach muscles if they’ve become weak – a common occurrence after multiple pregnancies. If this is the case for you, Dr. Diktaban surgically tightens weak abdominal muscles so you have improved muscle tone and better posture after surgery. Dr. Diktaban also removes excess skin and fat during a tummy tuck, so your overall benefits include a flatter, tighter abdomen from the inside out.
Less stress incontinence
If you suffer from stress urinary incontinence after vaginal births, a tummy tuck may be able to improve that condition, too. During your tummy tuck, Dr. Diktaban can create a slight bladder obstruction using soft tissue in your pelvic area to potentially reduce incontinence symptoms.
Ventral hernias may develop when abdominal muscles weaken. A ventral hernia forms when intestinal or abdominal tissue starts to push through your abdominal wall. During your tummy tuck, Dr. Diktaban can address this and repair weak muscles and your abdominal wall to provide relief from an existing hernia and help prevent another one from developing.
Aesthetic benefits are plentiful and long-lasting
A tummy tuck doesn’t just reduce fat, as some noninvasive laser procedures do. A tummy tuck reduces fat around the circumference of your belly, and it also removes excess skin.
After pregnancy or losing a significant amount of weight, you may be left with excess skin. A nonsurgical procedure that simply removes fat won’t necessarily take care of this extra, sagging section of skin. However, a tummy tuck will.
A typical abdominoplasty removes up to 10 pounds of belly fat through the excess skin and fatty tissue. This excess skin and fat won’t grow back in the same area as long as you maintain your healthy, active lifestyle.
If you’ve been struggling against the after-effects of weight loss, pregnancy, genetics, and the natural aging process, and you still have that “pooch” around your abdomen, a tummy tuck may be the ideal solution. Get back to your trimmer, slimmer, more contoured silhouette with a customized tummy tuck procedure from one of the most highly sought-after plastic surgeons in New York City.
