Dr. Vitolo enjoys performing tummy tuck surgeries precisely because it can have such life-changing results for his patients. With just a single surgery, patients can achieve the smoother and flatter tummy that they’ve been working so hard for!
Dr. Vitolo’s approach to tummy tuck surgery involves an in-depth consultation process, where candidates can expect to learn about the procedure, its benefits, and what kind of results they can look forward to. Dr. Vitolo prides himself on answering all questions and concerns his candidates might have about the tummy tuck surgery so that they feel comfortable and confident moving forward with this exceptional procedure.
During the procedure Dr. Vitolo will remove excess saggy skin (the “pooch”), remove stretch marks, and tighten the abdominal muscles. Liposculpture may also be performed on the flanks (“love handles “) to further narrow the waist. Dr. Vitolo usually doesn’t use a drain after the surgery based on each patients surgery.
The result of this surgery is an abdomen that looks like when you were 18! The tummy tuck is often combined with Dr Vitolo’s unique Scar Less Breast Augmentation, to “put the cherry on the cake!” in his Mommy Makeover procedure.
The tummy tuck procedure is performed under general anesthesia in Dr. Vitolo’s state of the art, AAAASF certified ambulatory surgical facility. The procedure usually takes 2 to 3 hours and patients are able to return home to recover that same day. Results include a smoother and more contoured tummy that will let you easily slip into your favorite pair of jeans.
