Plastic Surgeon in New Jersey Implements New Tummy Tuck Technique
Verona, NJ — New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Paul LoVerme and his practice in Verona have announced the introduction of an innovative surgical technique for performing abdominoplasty, or tummy tucks. As one of the top cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2011, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports over 115,000 tummy tuck procedures were performed last year, up 85 percent in demand in the past ten years. Dr. LoVerme says he is excited to have witnessed the evolution of the effective procedure and states that the new technique helps improve the quality of his results as well as the comfort of his patients.
At his center for plastic surgery in New Jersey, Dr. LoVerme focuses on a wide range of cosmetic procedures from BOTOX® Cosmetic to breast augmentation. He says as more and more patients have become aware of the benefits of cosmetic surgery in the past few years, advancements in both surgical technology and the types of incisions created by surgeons have continued to emerge. While the new technique offered at his practice is replacing a long-standing, successful procedure, Dr. LoVerme says thanks to recent innovations in surgical techniques, known as progressive tension sutures, patients can now enjoy the benefits of a slimmer, tighter waist with less discomfort and even quicker recovery.
Performed by suturing the flap of the abdominal wall to the muscle, Dr. LoVerme says one of the most notable advantages of the progressive tension sutures is the fact that no drains are needed. He says traditional tummy tuck surgery requires patients to hassle with drains following their procedure that help keep fluid from building up in the body, a step which is rendered unnecessary due to the advanced sutures used in the new technique. Dr. LoVerme says other benefits include the ability to recuperate faster with less discomfort.
Although he says a majority of patients may be good candidates for the progressive tension suture technique, Dr. LoVerme recommends anyone considering the procedure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing treatment, as not all body types may be a good fit. As with any medical procedure, whether it be tummy tucks or breast augmentation, he says patients should be sure to select a dedicated practice with extensive experience and qualifications in performing cosmetic surgery. Through partnership with the right surgeon, Dr. LoVerme says patients can be sure their procedure is performed with the utmost standards of quality and safety, allowing them to both regain confidence in their appearance and restore their self-esteem.
