For Dr. Paul M. Parker, board certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey, tummy tuck is a traditional procedure that has its place in treating patients. Dr. Parker is proud to be among the pioneers in the new advanced lipoabdominoplasty when physical conditions allow. This technique combines the traditional with the advanced for a beautiful, youthful-appearing abdomen.
Paramus NJ (PRWEB) November 25, 2008 -- New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul M. Parker, highly encourages anyone thinking about a tummy tuck to consider lipoabdominoplasty instead. Dr. Parker is proud to be pioneering this advanced procedure that actually achieves a sculpted, more chiseled rejuvenation of the abdomen as well as results in a faster recovery from cosmetic abdominal surgery.
Dr. Parker, is a pioneer in delivering advanced lipoabdominoplasty in the U.S. and has performed over 75 of these procedures since he first learned of it from Brazilian surgeons almost two years ago. This procedure is so revolutionary due to the combination of liposuction in the upper abdomen and the waist with many of the steps of a traditional tummy tuck. By doing this, Dr. Parker is able to contour the abdomen into a more-defined, sculpted way that is not achievable by a tummy tuck alone.
"The ideal candidates for this procedure are patients who are in relatively good physical shape, but may have loose or excess skin and/or fat in the abdominal area that doesn't respond to diet and exercise," advised Dr. Parker.
For the patients who fit this profile in New Jersey, tummy tuck procedures in the form of lipoabdominoplasty are ideal. Dr. Parker would like to see more patients opting for this technique because of its greater satisfaction level post-surgery.
The original lipoabdominoplasty procedure, described by the Brazilian surgeons, was an improvement over the traditional tummy tuck in creating a flatter, shapelier tummy and decreased the recovery time. Dr. Parker modified the technique to make the lipoabdominoplasty procedure even better. So now, people seeking a tummy tuck in New Jersey have the most advanced and effective procedure available.
Dr. Parker's modifications of the Brazilian lipoabdominoplasty procedure are as follows. Now, instead of traditional liposuction, Dr. Parker uses ultrasonic liposuction to liquefy the fat which facilitates and increases the removal of fat in the upper abdominal area. He does this using VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) system of ultrasonic liposuction.
Another improvement is the use of Quill sutures. These are barbed sutures that adjust the tension as each new stitch is added. Dr. Parker uses the Quill sutures to also bring the separated abdominal muscles together and tighten them.
Dr. Parker says, "Women can get separation of the abdominal muscles(known medically as diastasis recti) after pregnancy. The separation of the muscles contributes to the belly 'pooch' so often complained about. To tighten the muscles, we use the Quill sutures which gives a more effective tightening of these abdominal muscles."
The Quill sutures are also more effective than traditional sutures in closing the abdominal incision. This leads to a stronger incision which does not widen, creating an unnoticeable scar.
Dr. Parker offers the residents of New Jersey, tummy tuck procedure that surpasses the traditional method not just in results, but in recovery too. The quick recovery is further encouraged with the Parker Center's exclusively designed Rapid Recovery program, which involves the judicious use of supplements and postoperative lymphatic massage reducing swelling, bruising and pain.
The New Jersey Lipoabdominoplasty, newly developed by Dr. Parker with the use of VASER ultrasonic liposuction and Quill sutures helps the patient "obtain an optimally rejuvenated abdomen with a virtually unnoticeable scar and quick recovery from surgery. This has led to a very high degree of patient satisfaction and enthusiasm."

It's state of the art ambulatory surgical facility, Surgiplex, offer the latest in medical technology as well as recuperation methods to further enhance the rapid recovery from lipoabdominoplasty.
