Time for a Tuck
If you’re looking to improve your appearance, consider tummy tuck surgery. An abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, can remove loose and sagging skin or tissue from the abdomen. Drs. Feledy and Maiorino perform tummy tuck surgeries at their office in Washington DC and Chevy Chase using some of the most clinically advanced methods for tummy tuck surgery available. If you have protruding tissue in your midsection and desire a flatter tummy, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck.
Improve Your Confidence
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, is one of Washington DC's most popular cosmetic surgeries. A tummy tuck removes excess skin from a patient’s abdomen. The removal of loose tissue helps give patients a tighter and more defined waistline, making them look younger and slimmer—especially as loose skin can begin to droop over time as we age.
If you’re considering having a tummy tuck, Drs. Feledy and Maiorino recommend making an appointment with them at their office in Washington DC to discuss your options and schedule your consultation.

Reduce Abdominal Pouching
After having children or significant weight loss, many women suffer from loose skin on their abdomens and may feel self-conscious about their appearance. A tummy tuck can be performed to tighten your tummy and remove any excess skin that’s preventing you from getting back into your pre-pregnancy clothes. In addition to improving how you look in clothing, a tummy tuck can also improve your posture by tightening muscles. If you have been considering a tummy tuck but are unsure if it is right for you, contact Belmont Plastic Surgery today to schedule an appointment at the office in Washington DC.
Sagging Skin No More
Every year, thousands of people seek tummy tuck surgery to improve their body shape, especially after having kids or achieving major weight loss. Ideal candidates will have reached a healthy body weight and do not expect to have any more children.
Plastic surgeons also recommend people who are non-smokers, exercise regularly and are well informed about the tummy tuck procedure and its outcomes. To ensure you're getting the best tummy tuck Washington DC has to offer, start by selecting a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in tummy tuck surgeries. Belmont Plastic Surgery’s renowned Drs. Feledy and Maiorino have performed thousands of surgeries, giving them the experience and expertise you are looking for. At your consultation, they will ask you several questions about your medical history and goals for surgery as well as answer your questions to determine if a tummy tuck is right for you.
“After my second kid, I discovered my stomach muscles had become separated. It had a lot of effects I didn't expect, like a weakened core, so I had back pains, and no matter how much I exercised, I couldn't get rid of my little belly. This tummy tuck made me feel sexy again! The Belmont team are legends!”
A tummy tuck procedure is an outpatient surgery that takes about three hours. Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will make two incisions across your lower abdomen.
The excess skin between the incisions will be removed. They will then repair the abdominal muscles that have stretched over time. After these steps are complete, the incisions will be closed with sutures, with the final scar hidden beneath your bikini line. A surgical dressing and a compression garment will be applied to the treated areas to minimize swelling.
An abdominoplasty is an extensive surgical procedure. After surgery, Washington DC tummy tuck patients will need to limit their physical activities for a few weeks but you will be advised to walk shortly after surgery. After several weeks, you will no longer need to wear a compression garment and can return to full activity with no restrictions. Scars will fade as they heal over the next several months. Make sure to be protected from the sun. As with any procedure, specific instructions will be provided from Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino and the staff at Belmont Plastic Surgery.
A tummy tuck can dramatically slim your waistline and trim down your hips and thighs, providing you with an overall slimmer appearance. Drs. Feledy and Maiorino use advanced liposuction methods to remove as much fat from your midsection as possible, helping you get rid of excess weight in these problem areas and further enhancing your post-surgery results. Many Washington DC abdominoplasty patients can wear their pre-pregnancy clothes after undergoing a tummy tuck procedure. Results typically last for years, if not decades.
"Dr. Feledy, I am totally amazed with my Abdominoplasty! I can't believe how great my abdomen looks and how beautiful my scar is. It is nice and low, and you cannot notice it in a bikini. You have a wonderful skill, and I am so lucky to have chosen you to be my surgeon. I will send my family and friends to you if they ever need a Plastic Surgeon. You were great throughout the entire process, with such care and a great sense of humor! Thank you for my great look! It's amazing.”

Most of the potential side effects of a tummy tuck involve the appearance of the final body shape and contour. Effective and thorough communication prior to and following the procedure can help prevent many of these potential problems. As with any surgical procedure, there are a few rare side effects, including nerve damage, blood clots, scarring, pain, swelling or heart and lung complications. There is the risk of bleeding, infection and poor wound healing. Belmont Plastic Surgery prides itself on providing the safest tummy tuck Washington DC has available and works to make any procedure as painless and easy as possible.
For some candidates, less extensive procedures such as a mini tummy tuck or liposuction may be considered. If your goal is to achieve optimal contouring of the midsection, there's no substitute for the full tummy tuck. No other procedure can flatten your abdominal area as effectively as an abdominoplasty.
