Drainless Tummy Tuck

Excess skin and fat around the lower abdomen can be extremely frustrating and may not respond to diet and exercise. Through a plastic surgery procedure known as a tummy tuck, you can address these concerns and have the flat, athletic abdomen you have always wanted. Dr. Brad Gandolfi is a double board-certified plastic surgeon and two-time Castle Connolly NY top doctor who specializes in helping people achieve their goals. He does this using the newest drainless techniques that make his tummy tucks less painful and highly sought after. Although the drainless tummy tuck is the most common type performed, Dr. Gandolfi also performs mini-tummy tucks, traditional tummy tucks (with drains), and floating belly button tummy tucks.

Are There Any Risks Involved?

There are risks involved with any surgical procedure, including those associated with anesthesia. You can minimize most of these risks by ensuring that you choose a board-certified and highly experienced plastic surgeon to perform the work.

Will I Need To Request Extensive Time Off From Work?

Following a tummy tuck, it is imperative to give your body some time to heal. For most desk jobs, you can return to work after 2 weeks. If you have a physically demanding job, more time will be necessary before you are able to return to work.

Am I Too Young/Old For A Tummy Tuck?

When it comes to being a good candidate for a tummy tuck, your current lifestyle, future plans, and medical history are much more important than your age.

Does My Insurance Cover The Procedure?

Though most insurance policies will not cover a procedure like this one, we are always happy to talk with you about insurance and financing solutions.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Forever! Your new body can be thought of as a fresh starting point. You will, of course, continue to age, and you will still gain and lose weight as you do now, but the extra skin and fat that was removed will never return.
