Changes occur in our body as we age that sometimes cause additional weight gain in troubled areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, or abdominal, whether male or female. Women, however, suffer negative body changes when pregnant as the body adjusts for the baby. Consuming a well-balanced diet and exercise is the best way to remove excess body fat non-surgically. However, sometimes fat pockets are stubborn and stick around no matter how lean you eat or how much exercise you endure. Therefore, the board-certified New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Aviva Preminger of Preminger Plastic Surgery, shares her secrets to tighten up your abs when your regular diet and exercise fail.


Liposuction is one of the most common methods of removing stubborn fat pockets to reveal a sleek, sexy physique. The procedure takes approximately one to four hours, depending on your case, and is typically an outpatient procedure. You may experience temporary bruising, swelling, and some associated tenderness. The Upper East Side of Manhattan professional plastic surgeon explains that most patients can fully recover within an eight to twelve-week period. The results can be permanent if the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Tummy Tuck

The well-known tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can change the shape of your mid-section by removing fat deposits and tightening loose skin. Women who have children or adults that have achieved significant weight loss are fond of the tummy tuck as it removes excess skin and remaining pockets of fat, resulting in a sexy physique. For those who achieve an extreme weight loss goal and have stretched skin lingering, the tummy tuck can restore abdominal contour by tightening your stomach muscles to work as an internal corset. The experienced New York City plastic surgeon also uses targeted liposuction in conjunction with the tummy tuck to give your body an optimal shape. The average procedure length for a tummy tuck is between two and four hours in an outpatient setting. Some surgical side effects are swelling, bruising, tightness, and some pain that should completely subside within eight to twelve weeks. The results can remain permanent as long as you follow a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Smart Lipo

Smart Lipo is laser-assisted liposuction that provides a more effective way to remove fat cells from your body and stimulate your body to begin healing immediately, boosting patient benefits during the healing process. Laser liposuction also tightens skin in the treatment area, even with no fat removal. The treatment is about one to two hours in length and performed at the knowledgeable plastic surgeon’s office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Since Smart Lipo is minimally invasive, you should experience minimal bruising accompanied by soreness and swelling. However, within approximately two weeks, you can enjoy permanent results for a sleek, sexy body.


BodyTite™ by InMode is a revolutionary fat reducing method that uses radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). The minimally invasive procedure can provide surgical quality results without leaving scars or causing post-op downtime. The procedure does not need a scalpel to make incisions because it uses an even heat process in a three-dimensional contraction of your dermis. The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes for each area you would like to receive treatment and happens in the comfortable plastic surgeon’s office in New York City. Since the BodyTite™ procedure is minimally invasive, the side effects are possible bleeding, but you should fully recover in less than ten days. Again, your results with the BodyTite™ treatment are permanent when you follow a healthy diet and exercise properly.
