Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty) In LI

Abdominoplasty is an aesthetic plastic surgery procedure performed in Long Island (LI) that tightens and flattens the abdominal area. This popular procedure, commonly called a tummy tuck, is often performed on Long Island women after they have concluded child-bearing in order to regain their youthful shape and profile. Men are also now asking for tummy tuck surgery in Long Island. During a tummy tuck, an incision is made along the lower abdomen. The Long Island tummy tuck surgeon then lifts up the skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. The loose skin and excess fat are removed and the skin is sutured back in place. The scar line, if the procedure is performed properly, is hidden by underwear. Tummy tuck is sometimes confused with panniculectomy. Both of these procedures are used for body contouring, but panniculectomy is more often performed as a post-bariatric surgery procedure following a weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass surgery. Other common, less invasive cosmetic procedures that are requested by tummy tuck patients in Long Island include microdermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing and BOTOX.

The festival features some of the best seafood in Long Island with over twenty vendors. Other activities here include the arts and crafts tents with anything from handmade jewelry to painted glassware.

With all of the available fun, a trip to Long Island for a tummy tuck can be a good time for the whole family.
