Dr. Preminger Recognized For Mini Tummy Tuck Expertise
The Cosmetic Town editorial team met with Dr. B. Aviva Preminger in her Manhattan office to learn more about the mini tummy tuck procedure. This popular procedure involves removing excess fatty tissue and skin in the lower abdomen, and tightening the abdominal wall, if necessary. Surgeons often combine the procedure with liposuction to create a better abdominal contour.
They explain: “During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, especially the six-pack muscles, get stretched in order to accommodate the unborn baby. Many people think that the muscle will get tight again but that is not always the case. These muscles do not usually come back together again entirely. This is where a tummy tuck serves its purpose….” A mini tummy tuck may be sufficient, depending on how much tissue needs to be removed. Some patients opt to have their breasts reconstructed at the same time in a procedure known as a “mommy makeover” – another one of Dr. Preminger’s specialties.
In this exclusive interview, editors asked Dr. Preminger about the ideal candidate for mini tummy tucks, treatment alternatives, limitations, risks, recovery, downtime, when results are visible, and what follow-ups may be necessary. They conclude that it is always best to consult with an experienced doctor prior to making a decision about plastic surgery.
