Dr. Marc Klein is our breast and body specialist and has performed thousands of “midsection miracles” over the past 20 years. Here are some commonly asked questions that are asked of him.
Q:What can I do about this sagging stomach skin? I hate it!
A: Unfortunately, no number of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, no miracle creams will rid you of excess skin, and no diet—no matter how healthy—will tone your stomach the way you envision. Only a tummy tuck will give you the at stomach you desire.
Q:What’s the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction?
A: When it is necessary to reduce both excess fat tissue and sagging skin from the abdomen, a tummy tuck is recommended. The surgery can also be used to tighten the underlying muscles in case they are loose or separated. Liposuction is more appropriate only when the patient has excess fat deposits in the tummy area, but skin elasticity is still good. If the abdomen bulges with a sit-up, there are significant stretch marks, or your goal is restoration of tighter skin, a tummy tuck or mini-tuck with liposuction is a better option. Dr. Klein offers the latest innovations in quick recovery, drainless surgery, and minimal downtime.
Q:What can I do if I’m afraid of surgery?
A: CoolSculpting® and BTL Vanquish ME™ are both procedures that are fat reducing and body contouring with no downtime. Sometimes we combine these two options for optimal results.
