Summer is the peak swimsuit season, and many people get concerned about exposing their midsection. But, whether you experienced significant weight loss, were recently pregnant, or are looking for the best way to tone your tummy, there are fast procedures that can help flatten your stomach for a sexy contour. One of New York City’s leading plastic surgeons, Dr. Aviva Preminger of Preminger Plastic Surgery, shares tummy flattening procedures to help you decide which option is best to achieve your desired results.


CoolSculpting is the low-risk, non-invasive method of eliminating fat cells without anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. Using small paddle-like applicators, extreme cold targets specific, small areas to break down fat cells, which get naturally eliminated by your body over several months. You may feel a pulling, pinching, or tingling sensation that generally subsides once the tissue becomes numb during the procedure. On average, most board-certified plastic surgeons on the Upper East Side of Manhattan can administer CoolSculpting treatments within one to three hours, depending on the area size. Most patients can return to work the same day and often see a 20 to 25 percent reduction after the first treatment. Peak results can appear in as little as ten days, but most patients see the results within two months.


Traditional body contouring in New York City uses liposuction, a procedure extracting fat cells from specific body areas. Liposuction helps sculpt thighs, buttocks, or your midsection for a tight and toned sexy body. The process can last between one and four hours depending on your case and completely heal within 8 to 12 weeks. However, with SmartLipo, a laser-assisted liposuction procedure that liquefies fat cells, does not require as much downtime as traditional liposuction. A typical SmartLipo session may last one to two hours, depending on the number of treated areas. You may return to strenuous activities in two weeks with Dr. Preminger’s approval, and you should see peak results in 6 to 9 months.

Tummy Tuck

Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss change your body shape leaving behind sagging or excess skin, stretch marks, Cesarean scars, or separated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can restore ab contour by tightening stomach wall muscles and eliminating excess skin. Usually, tummy tuck procedures include targeted liposuction to optimize toning and contour. Our leading tummy tuck plastic surgeon on the Upper East Side of Manhattan typically requires two to four hours for your procedure, depending on the complexity. You should be able to return to work within two weeks, with complete symptom subsidization within 8 to 12 weeks post-op.
