Tummy Tuck in NYC
Tummy Tuck in NYC
If you are considering a tummy tuck in NYC because you suffer from loose or sagging skin, an abdominal bulge, stretch marks, and excess fat around your midsection, you are on the right page.
Whether you’ve recently given birth or you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, the result of either life experience can leave behind, let’s say, unwanted evidence.
To most women’s frustration, no amount of exercise or healthy dieting can turn back the clock and adequately restore the waistline.
You probably agree it’s much harder to regain your body contours after:
- You’ve had several children or a pregnancy in which you gained a lot of weight
- You’ve experienced fluctuations in weight gain and weight loss
- Your tummy bulge refuses to budge even with dieting and exercise
- Your skin has lost its elasticity
Tummy Tuck to the Rescue
Wouldn’t you love to wake up every morning feeling confident and happy with the way you look?
How would it feel to have the confidence to wear that polka-dot bikini you’ve been keeping in the back of your closet for the past year?
How about rediscovering the “fun” in shopping again? Where every outfit you try-on… fits like it was made for you!
Well, it’s time to say goodbye to the days of hiding under baggy clothes. Or feeling like you’ll never again fit into your favorite little black dress.
Dr. Lorenc can help you restore your body contours and get you back into your clothes and daily activities in as little as a week.
What Is A Tummy Tuck?
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical solution by which sagging skin and excess fat in the abdomen is removed to create a tighter-looking, flatter midsection.
Additionally, abdominal muscles are repaired – if needed – to restore your womanly silhouette.
However, a tummy tuck is more than just removing extra skin and fat.
An abdominoplasty requires a thorough understanding of the human muscular-skeletal anatomy, surgical skills and aesthetic ability to accomplish the most natural-looking, beautiful results.
Because each surgery is tailored to your personal body, the specific techniques utilized to performed your tummy tuck will be determined after a physical examination by Dr. Lorenc during your consultation.
A tummy tuck performed by Dr. Lorenc reveals a slimmer, more youthful, more appealing, and beautifully contoured waistline.
Who is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck
As a general rule, a tummy tuck surgery is right for you if you are in good general health within 30 pounds of your ideal weight or a BMI index below 25 kg/m2, and you meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Excess or sagging skin in the abdominal area
- Concentrated excess fat in and around the abdomen area
- Diastasis recti (midline separation of the abdominal muscles)
- An abdomen which protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of the body
With the help of Dr. Lorenc, you can get back into your jeans!
Planning Your Tummy Tuck
During your consultation with Dr. Lorenc, he and his staff will help you create a detailed plan of actions.
The best tummy tuck outcomes are achieved when you are close to your ideal weight and have made the lifestyle changes necessary to sustain your tummy tuck results.
Each tummy tuck procedure is different. Thus, it is always recommended to plan on the side of caution.
- You should make arrangements with a family member of friend to stay with you during the first few days after your surgery
- If you will be recovering at home, plan on completing all your housekeeping chores prior to the surgery
- Purchase enough food and supplies for your first seven days of recovery
Additional post-surgical instructions will be provided to you upon discharge.

What to Expect from a Tummy Tuck Surgery in NYC
The abdominoplasty procedure starts with a consultation with Dr. Lorenc to determine if you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
During this first meeting, you and Dr. Lorenc will discuss your reasons for considering a tummy tuck and your goals. This is to ensure a tummy tuck is the right option for you.
Together you will set realistic goals for the outcome of your tummy tuck.
When you are comfortable with the goals set and decide to move forward with the abdominoplasty, we will schedule your surgery for a future date.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
To help you remain comfortable after the procedure, Dr. Lorenc will administer a long-lasting pain medication, which will also help you with your recovery period.
All tummy tuck surgeries require an incision. Depending on the amount of skin to be removed, the incision will only be as long as necessary to effectively remove the excess skin and fat desired.
Dr. Lorenc will hide the resulting incision below your bikini line. In some cases, when the belly button is left intact, no other incisions are required.
Then, if necessary, the underlying muscles are tightened by stitching them into a new position.
Next, the excess skin is removed, contouring techniques are executed, and the incision(s) are then closed with absorbable sutures.
Post-Surgical Information and Tummy Tuck Recovery
If you have any questions after the surgery, you’ll have 24/7 access to answers.
After the tummy tuck procedure is completed and the anesthesia has worn off, you’ll have minimal discomfort and will be able to walk out of the office on your own.
Dr. Lorenc will personally see you for a post-operative visit the next day at your home or hotel (within same zip code). And will also see you for your follow-up visit and, if necessary, suture removal.
As mentioned before, each individual and surgery is different. Therefore, each tummy tuck recovery is different. That’s why each day poses an individualized care protocol, depending on the patient’s healing process.
Dr. Lorenc encourages every patient to submit post-surgical selfies within the first 24-72 hours following their procedures.
There are several benefits to this healing approach:
- It allows Dr. Lorenc and his team to guide patients through their post-op recovery by explaining proper care on a timely basis and as needed
- Patients get the reassurance they’re healing normally without having to make an in-person visit before they’re scheduled to return to the office
- It enables patients to freely communicate with Dr. Lorenc and the team, ensuring a more comfortable setting where they may openly ask questions in the early stage of their recovery process
Although this is a fairly new approach to the recovery process, post-surgical selfies are never a replacement for in-person follow-up visits. They are an efficient and effective complement to any “after-care” protocol.
Dr. Lorenc recommends one week of easy relaxing, even though you may be up and walking the next day. After one week is up, you may resume light duty work. On day 3, you’ll no doubt feel ready to rule the world with your beautiful body! After two weeks, you can resume full activities, not including heavy lifting or extremely strenuous activity – which can be resumed after 3 weeks or until Dr. Lorenc clears you.
Tummy Tuck Side Effects
Bruising or swelling might occur but it’s completely normal and should subside after a few weeks.
In rare occasions, your stomach may be numb for several months following the procedure.
Additionally, patients should expect up to a year for incisions to flatten and fade.

Dr. Lorenc has patients who fly in from all around the world including California, Europe, Australia, South America, the Middle East, and the United Arab Emirates.
