a woman's trim midsection


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

Board-certified plastic surgeon Anya Kishinevsky can address these issues with abdominoplasty at her office in Norwalk, CT.

We use advanced techniques and combine abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, with liposuction for optimal results.

"Restore That Hourglass Waistline." Dr. Kishinevsky Explains Abdominoplasty

Dr. Kishinevsky discusses what patients can expect before, during, and after abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck. Our surgical center in Norwalk, CT, serving Fairfield and beyond, offers this outpatient procedure to patients hoping to achieve enhanced definition and confidence.

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 weaken 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.

I had a great experience here. I felt at home and not judged everyone of the workers were very kind to me. I was able to go through with the surgery process with no problems and after the surgery my recovery was very quick! So overall, I don’t think I could’ve found another place like this!

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:

Full Tummy Tuck

Our plastic surgeon in Norwalk, CT, can perform a full tummy tuck, which aims to improve the upper and lower abdomen. The incision stretches from hip bone to hip bone, but it sits low and can be easily concealed with clothing.

​Mini Tummy Tuck

Patients who wish to eliminate small amounts of excess skin and fat beneath the belly button can benefit from a mini tummy tuck, or endoscopic tummy tuck. This less-invasive variation on the procedure tightens loose abdominal muscles and has a comparatively short recovery time.

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.

Pairing Your Tummy Tuck With Liposuction for Stunning Results

Your abdominoplasty may employ the use of liposuction to aid in the removal of excess fat. Our board-certified plastic surgeon serving Norwalk, CT, and all of Fairfield County uses power-assisted liposuction, a method that adds gentle vibration to the cannula, which allows her to use less force during the procedure. The result is less bruising, swelling, trauma, and a faster recovery time.

Keeping Abdominoplasty Affordable

Our Norwalk, CT, practice, serving Fairfield, Bridgeport, Stamford, and all surrounding communities of Fairfield County, believes in making the expert care of Dr. Kishinevsky affordable. During your consultation, we will be glad to explain the financing and payment plan options we offer in order to keep your goals a comfortable fit for your budget.

Is Abdominoplasty Right for Me?

It is important to discuss your goals with a plastic surgeon to ensure the resulting procedure will meet your expectations. Dr. Kishinevsky will thoroughly assess your candidacy when you visit her in Norwalk, CT. Depending on your goals, other procedures such as liposuction or a body lift might be more suitable.

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 in the long term. She will only recommend procedures she feels can benefit you.

What to Expect  During Your Tummy Tuck

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

Before Surgery

You will first undergo a consultation and exam at our office in Norwalk, 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 three hours, give or take a half hour.


Our 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. Dr. Kishinevsky will provide you with a compression garment to wear around your stomach, which promotes 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 to achieve the best results.
