Dr. Nolan Karp of New Yorkâ€™s KCNY Plastic Surgery speaks on tummy tucks and their continuous high marks in patient satisfaction.
Online PR News – 06-August-2013 – 8/3/2013, New York, NY – New York, NY Though diet and exercise are typically effective in getting rid of unwanted weight, many patients experience areas of fat that are simply resistant to these methods. Abdominoplasty, known colloquially as a tummy tuck, is an effective surgical option for patients whose stubborn fat hasn't responded to more traditional methods. Dr. Nolan Karp of KCNY Plastic Surgery recently sat down to discuss tummy tucks, and the high marks for patient satisfaction it frequently receives.
"For patients dealing with stubborn areas of fat or loose skin in the abdominal region, there are few procedures more effective than a tummy tuck," explains Dr. Karp. "Boasting a 95% 'Worth It Rating' on popular online plastic surgery community RealSelf, it's evident that this procedure is successful in providing patients with a more ideal and contoured body." Dr. Karp went on to explain that RealSelf is a website in which plastic surgery patients can report their level of satisfaction, along with details, of the procedure they underwent.
"While tummy tucks are commonly thought of as weight loss solutions, this is not the case," reports Dr. Karp. "In actuality, this surgical procedure works to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen as well as tightening the muscles. This creates a more firm and smooth profile for the patient. Loose or protruding abdomens can be caused by a number of different factors, including aging, pregnancy, changes in weight and more. For these patients, tummy tucks can help restore a more aesthetically pleasing midsection."
Detailing some of the patient-side benefits of tummy tucks, Dr. Karp offers, "Patients can expect a more ideal, smooth abdomen, with a reduction in stretch marks and unsightly excess skin. The results typically last for a long time as well, provided that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle. Beyond the cosmetic benefits, patients may even see improvements in health, like reduced back pain and the clearing up of rashes and irritation due to skin-on-skin contact."
Asked to explain why this procedure is so highly regarded, Dr. Karp concluded with this: "Tummy tucks have proven to be an effective tool to help contour the abdomen, allowing patients to achieve the body that they truly desire."
