Many people suffer from sagging skin and excess fat in their midsection that doesn't respond to diet or exercise.

 At her offices in Norwalk, CT, and Fairfield, CT, Dr. Anya Kishinevsky can address these issues with abdominoplasty.

Why should I consider a tummy tuck?

The Benefits of Abdominoplasty

Feel Better about the Way You Look

Few things lead to self-consciousness and discomfort more than a sagging, distended stomach. Many patients find that cosmetic surgery is an effective way to boost confidence and enhance their overall quality of life.

Restore Weakened Stomach Muscles 

Age, pregnancy, and genetics are some of the reasons why abdominal muscles lose their elasticity, separate, or become weakened over time. A tummy tuck can significantly tighten the abdominal wall, making the stomach appear slim and firm. 

Eliminate Excess Skin

After significant weight loss or pregnancy, the body can develop excess skin in the areas of size fluctuation. Unfortunately, the body is not always able to naturally restore its former condition. While liposuction can remove small areas of fat, many patients undergo a tummy tuck to eliminate both stubborn fat pockets and sagging skin around the abdomen.

Types of Abdominoplasty  

While a traditional tummy tuck is designed to address a moderate amount of skin laxity and stubborn fat along with separated abdominal muscles, the treatment can be tailored to accommodate those in need of minimal correction as well as those in need of a more extensive procedure:

​Mini Tummy Tuck

Patients who wish to eliminate small amounts of excess skin and fat beneath the bellybutton can benefit from a mini tummy tuck or an endoscopic tummy tuck. This less invasive variation on the procedure tightens loose abdominal muscles and has a comparatively short recovery time. Liposuction may be incorporated, depending on your goals.

Extended Tummy Tuck 

If you need to remove a large amount of skin and tighten a loose abdominal wall, you may benefit most from an extended tummy tuck. This procedure addresses both the upper and lower abdomen as well as the stomach flanks. While the incision for this procedure is longer, the surgery addresses a larger area of the torso. The resulting scar can be concealed with clothing and certain swimwear.

Is Abdominoplasty Right for Me?

It is important to discuss your goals with the plastic surgeon to ensure the resulting procedure will meet your expectations. At our offices in Norwalk and Fairfield, CT, serving Bridgeport and surrounding communities, Dr. Kishinevsky will assess your candidacy. Sometimes other procedures such as liposuction or a body lift might be more suitable, depending on your goals.

The cosmetic benefits are just one element to consider when deciding whether plastic surgery is right for you. It is also important to understand:

  • A tummy tuck is not recommended for patients who are considering becoming pregnant in the future.
  • Surgery is never recommended for those in poor physical health, or who suffer from severe illness.
  • Committing to a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, is the best way to maintain your results.

Dr. Kishinevsky's ultimate goal is to ensure that you are happy with your treatment and can maintain your results long-term. She will only recommend procedures she feels can benefit you. 

What to Expect 

Our team will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions so you are prepared to undergo plastic surgery.

Before Surgery

Patients will first undergo a consultation and exam at our offices in Norwalk or Fairfield, CT, to develop a treatment plan based on your goals. Our team will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions so you are prepared to undergo plastic surgery.


Before the procedure, you will be provided with general anesthesia, and you will remain comfortably sedated throughout the operation. The surgery in its entirety takes about one to five hours.


The doctor will carefully create incisions at the targeted area of the midsection. The abdominal wall is repaired, the excess skin is removed, and if needed, the belly button is reconstructed. Liposuction may also be performed at this time. The incisions will be carefully closed to minimize scarring.


Abdominoplasty is generally an outpatient procedure, allowing you to recover at home. The doctor will provide you with a compression garment to wear around the stomach to help promote circulation and timely healing.

Maintaining your Results 

The results of a tummy tuck can last decades with proper care.

 It is important to remember that a tummy tuck is neither a weight loss procedure nor a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. The final results will greatly depend on how you maintain your body after the operation. We recommend eating a well-balanced diet and adopting proper exercise habits in order for the best results.
