Why Tummy Tuck?
There are three layers of tissue of the abdomen; skin, fat, and fascia. When patients present to Dr. Stein’s practice concerned about the appearance of their abdomen the problem has to do with one or more of these layers. With aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy, skin laxity increases leading to redundant skin. With weight gain, the thickness of the fat layer increases. With pregnancy, straining and weakened core muscles the fascia stretches leading to an abdominal bulge. During a tummy tuck Dr. Stein will use liposuction to reduce the thickness of the fat layer, perform internal sutures (called a rectus plication) to tighten your fascia and remove the excess skin to look tight and youthful. During your consultation Dr. Stein will examine your abdomen to determine what procedures will best address your concerns.

What Can You Expect Before Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Whatever the issue is, Dr. Stein will examine you in detail, diagnose the problem and tell you in detail how he plans to correct it. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you like to help you feel comfortable and confident about the process. After surgery, you will meet with Dr. Stein regularly so he can make sure your breasts are healing appropriately and that you are recovering well. Dr. Stein is well-known for his excellence in patient care and will be by your side every step of the way.
What Is the Recovery Like for Tummy Tuck Surgery?
Recovery is patient specific. Most patients take Tylenol and Advil alone after surgery and are pain free after a couple days. A muscle relaxant and a stronger pain killer will be prescribed in case you need it. You can shower over your incisions 2 days after surgery and resume your normal activities shortly thereafter. You will be wearing a compressive garment over your abdomen for 1 month. Exercise can start 4 weeks after surgery once Dr. Stein confirms that your scars are healing well.
What Is the Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

With Dr. Stein
We pride ourselves on providing exceptional patient care and delivering outstanding results. Don’t just take our word for it – hear what our satisfied patients have to say.
My journey began two years ago when the incredible Dr. Stein performed my first surgery, a fleur de lis tummy tuck to essentially remove my hanging stomach skin. This operation changed my life for the better. I no longer had a hanging stomach that I had to camouflage/hide daily with the help of compression garments. Post healing, I regained newfound confidence that I never had before. The results were astonishing! The second surgery Dr. Stein performed was a breast lift, augmentation and thoracobrachioplasty, where skin is removed from my arms and side of chest. The surgery went great and I am very happy with the result. I have no regrets once again because I have been taken care of so meticulously and expertly by Dr. Stein. Dr. Stein is a cut above the best! He has a saying that really resonates with me, once a patient, always a patient. To me, this means that he will always be available to answer any questions from his patients. In addition to following up regularly, Dr. Stein was always reachable twenty-four-seven in case of questions or concerns which only added to his excellent post patient care practices! I cannot stress enough how important it is to trust your surgeon. Dr. Stein is the kind of surgeon that you can trust with your life. He has a fantastic eye for aesthetics and symmetry and tells it to you straight. I‘ve attended many surgical consultations, but I have never met another doctor who is so attentive to his patient’s needs. Should you choose Dr. Stein to be your surgeon, I one hundred percent believe you will have no regrets and your expectations will be surpassed. I owe him so much and I will forever be grateful for his skilled surgeon hands but mostly for his warm heart, thoughtfulness, expertise and amazing bedside manner!
I went in for my consultation with Dr Stein and he was kind, professional and so knowledgeable. As a physician myself, I appreciated that he is not only a skilled surgeon, but also a researcher and still active in publishing papers on plastic surgery with some of the biggest names in the field. I had my abdominoplasty and he literally texted or called me every day for the first week to see how I was doing. And now to my results… I am so in LOVE with my new body and every time I look at my new abdomen, my mind is blown! I could not be happier with my choice in plastic surgeon.
