The Rise of the Tummy Tuck By Dr. Fredric Newman on October 15, 2013

Body Procedures

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure was the third most popular plastic surgery procedure performed last year, increasing by 4.8% from the previous year. Dr. Fredric Newman explains that, although it wasnt always so common, abdominoplasty has become a highly sought-after cosmetic procedure at his practice. Pregnancy, weight loss, and other factors can lead to loose muscles and excess, inelastic skin in the abdominal region. Dr. Newman says tummy tuck surgery proves to be an effective way to tighten those muscles and remove excess skin for firmer, more fit-looking results.

Currently, approximately 10% of our Darien plastic surgery patients undergo the tummy tuck procedure, and more and more people are benefiting from the attractive, toned midsections and heightened self-esteem tummy tuck surgery can help them achieve. Dr. Newman points out that the procedure has gradually become more popular over the last five to ten years, and he anticipates further growth as people continue to discover the potential to achieve dramatically beautiful results.
