Tummy Tuck in New Jersey

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure performed to address loose skin and stubborn fat in the stomach. The stomach is a common problem area for people of all ages, and a tummy tuck can produce a firmer, sculpted appearance to enhance the figure. The tummy tuck procedure can be performed as a full tummy tuck, or just as a mini tummy tuck, which only addresses the area below the belly button. The Peer Group specializes in tummy tuck procedures to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals. To view some of the results we have helped patients achieve, be sure to explore our tummy tuck before and after pictures, which include tummy tuck before and after scar pictures.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck starts at $7,500. The exact cost of treatment varies, depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the tummy tuck approach that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.

What is the Tummy Tuck Procedure Like?

The tummy tuck procedure varies, depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. These treatments begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For the tummy tuck procedure, incisions are made in the belly button and along the pubic line. Then, excess skin and fat is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. We also tighten the abdominal muscles to improve muscle definition. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.

What is the Tummy Tuck Recovery Like?

The recovery process for your tummy tuck varies, depending on the extent of treatment performed. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You will need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend patients abstain from any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from a Tummy Tuck?

The results from tummy tuck surgery are visible soon after treatment, and last for many years to come. However, a tummy tuck cannot prevent changes in the stomach that might occur in the future due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits in order to make their results last as long as possible, and wait to have a tummy tuck until they no longer plan on having children.
