Return to Activities in Ten Days

The demand for plastic surgery and innovative techniques have significantly increased to please our culture in which everyone wants to look their best. A smooth, trim tummy is a youthful look and desired by most. Over the past year, Dr. Parker has been performing a procedure known as Lipoabdominoplasty, a revolutionary procedure compared to a standard tummy tuck. Using a combination of aggressive liposuction and many of the principles of a Classic Tummy Tuck together, Dr. Parker provides optimum abdominal results and can have you back to most normal activities in ten days.

The Lipoabdominoplasty surgery begins with liposuction of the entire abdomen to remove excessive, unwanted fat. After that, redundant skin is surgically removed from the lower abdomen. Incisions are limited, so that in many cases, a bikini bottom can cover them. Unlike a standard tummy tuck, this procedure results in less swelling and bruising, making recovery time quicker. Patients can expect to return to normal activity within ten days.


A new, improved tummy tuck

Can’t decide between a tummy tuck and liposuction? Well, now you don’t have to. A new procedure called Lipoabdominoplasty combines both and promises better results than standard surgeries (less pain, swelling, bruising, and downtime). “Compared with a traditional tummy tuck, the blood vessels and nerves are kept intact, so patients heal more quickly,” says Paul Parker, MD, director of the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in Paramus, New Jersey, and one of the first to perform the technique. “Liposuction allows for the skin to be contoured, rather than just pulled down, so patients who undergo the procedure have a more defined waistline.”

Lipoabdominoplasty is a relatively new technique that Dr. Parker has learned from his colleagues in Brazil. He predicts that it will soon become the “gold standard” for rejuvenation of the tummy and a much sought after procedure in the United States. Different from other techniques, Lipoabdominoplasty preserves many of the nerves and blood supply of the abdominal wall and provides better abdominal sculpting. Moreover, the skillful techniques employed by Dr. Parker during surgery contribute to a low rate of complications and faster recuperation post-surgery.

Dr. Parker has performed Lipoabdominoplasty in many patients over the past year ranging from 30-60 years of age. Lipoabdominoplasty is performed to tighten and smooth the abdomen after pregnancy, weight loss, or other ravages of the aging process. Its advantages include:

  1. Improved abdominal shape due to aggressive liposuction.
  2. Lower rate of postoperative complications such as seroma.
  3. Less likelihood of postoperative numbness.
  4. More security for smokers and post weight loss patients.
  5. Shorter scar in many patients.
  6. Quicker postoperative recovery with less swelling, bruising and pain.

By incorporating the tenets of his Rapid Recovery program to Lipoabdominoplasty patients, Dr. Parker and his medical team have observed a quick, relatively pain-free recovery from surgery and attractively sculpted abdomens.
