The limitations of diet and exercise range from person to person. Some people will find that these traditional methods of weight loss can be very effective. They may then lose a substantial amount of weight and find that excess skin, particularly in the abdominal region, is a concern. For others, a fitness program and healthy eating stop offering results before the intended outcome is achieved. Dr. Neal Goldberg, our board certified plastic surgeon, offers multiple techniques to address these common issues. One of the most popular and effective is tummy tuck surgery.
Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery is designed to reduce excess skin, tighten underlying stomach muscles, and reduce pockets of fat. If no skin laxity is present, liposuction alone may be effective. However, pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, and genetic predisposition can lead to excess skin, a condition that diet, exercise, and liposuction alone cannot address. Dr. Goldberg utilizes some of the most advanced body contouring techniques available, and he can determine whether tummy tuck surgery, mini tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, or a non-surgical treatment can optimize your results. Your needs and goals are unique, and our skilled medical team will customize our care to best suit you.
