Wonderful doctor who managed to fix what other doctors said would not be possible. I highly recommend him, and would give him 10 stars if I could!
He really took his time with me, answered all of my (many) questions, and made sure I was happy with the result. Thank you, Dr Schaffner! ~ Google

Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery (“Abdominoplasty”) is performed by the Plastic Surgeon to remove excessive skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten underlying muscles in the abdomen. Tummy tuck surgery removes loose or wrinkled skin (and stretch marks ). Both women and men can benefit from this extremely effective and safe body contouring / body sculpting surgery.

Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery addresses:

  • Wrinkled or loose skin with or without stretch marks (stretch marks on the abdomen are usually the result of pregnancy, aging, or significant weight loss).
  • Excessive fat, skin, soft tissue – which are usually more prominent in the lower abdomen.
  • Rectus Muscle Diastasis: The muscles of the anterior abdominal have become separated. Exercise does not help in this situation (once the muscle relaxes, they separate and the tummy bulges out.) This needs to be repaired by sewing (suturing) the muscles together in the mid-line.
  • Repairs belly button (umbilical) hernias. If a patient has large ventral, incisional and/or umbilical hernias.

Full Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery: Otherwise known as an “Abdominoplasty,”this procedure performed by NYC Tummy Tuck plastic surgeon Adam Schaffner, MD, FACS surgically addresses skin, fat, and muscle. A full tummy tuck benefits those patients who want a flat stomach and skin as tight as possible. Results, especially when combined with liposuction of the flanks (if needed) are immediate and dramatic. The tummy tuck plastic surgery procedure can be performed by the NYC Plastic Surgeon under twilight anesthesia or general anesthesia – this will vary depending on each patient’s specific case.

Mini Tummy Tuck: Or “partial abdominoplasty” is best suited for patients of mini-tummy tuck plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner who have a “pouch” just below the belly button and who do not have stretch marks or loose skin (usually due to weight gain or significant weight loss). The Mini Tummy Tuck plastic surgery procedure is less invasive than a full tummy tuck (“abdominoplsty”). While a full tummy tuck involves an incision around the belly button and at the top of the pubic hair line, a mini tummy tuck leaves the belly button intact and requires a much smaller incision.

The ideal candidate for Tummy Tuck Surgery or Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery should meet most of the following criteria:

  • Is close to their ideal body weight
  • Wants to remove specific areas of loose skin or fat
  • Weight has been stable for at least 6 months or more
  • Has good skin tone and elasticity
  • Understands the risks of abdominoplasty surgery and scarring
