Your Abdominoplasty Journey

  1. Consultation for Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Columbia, SC

    You and Dr. Lefkowitz will sit together in a private consultation room and discuss your desired results to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your concerns. A robe will be provided to make your experience as comfortable and private as possible.

    Scheduling and financial options will be reviewed in detail to answer any questions you may have. We aim for all clients who are researching a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Columbia, SC to fully understand the procedure. Our Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) clients visit us from Lexington, Chapin, Forest Acres, surrounding areas, and nearby states.

  2. Arrival for Surgery

    When you arrive, you (and a guest if preferred) will be shown to your private pre-op room, which you will return to after surgery for your post-op care to maximize your comfort and privacy.

  3. During the Procedure

    Natural light in the operating suite provides a view of the sky as you enter and makes the space more welcoming while still providing the highest level of privacy.

    During the surgery, Dr. Lefkowitz will make a horizontal incision below the bikini line or C-section scar, tighten the fascia (covering of the abdominal muscles), trim excess fat and skin, and re-inset the belly button to restore a firm and contoured midsection.

  4. Recovery

    Most clients experience some mild discomfort after a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Columbia, SC. Prescription medications will help ease the healing process.

    • Immediately Post-Procedure

      You will be up and walking (hunched over), eating and drinking normally

    • 7 - 10 Days Post-Procedure

      You will feel mildly swollen and tight in your midsection. Typically, one small drain tube will be implanted to evacuate fluid. This will be removed approximately 10-14 days after your procedure. Usually, all sutures used are absorbable and thus there are none to take out in the post-operative period.

    • 10 - 14 Days Post-Procedure

      Dr. Lefkowitz recommends 10-14 days for your early recovery. Return to work/school is allowed at this time (provided there is no heavy lifting involved.)

    • 3 - 6 Weeks Post-Procedure

      Gradual increase in low impact exercise and activity.

    • 6 Weeks Post Procedure

      Cleared for all activities except for isolated core/crunches

    • 3 Months Post Procedure

      Cleared for all core/abdominal exercises

    • 6 Months Post-Procedure

      Your final shape and contour will gradually appear.

    • Continuing Care

      Dr. Lefkowitz believes continuing care is essential. He will continue to guide you through all matters of the recovery process and will answer any of your questions regarding diet, exercise and activity levels.

"Such a Comforting Place"

Keri decided on a tummy tuck after having four kids. And she says the interactions with Dr. Lefkowtiz were unlike anything she’s experienced.

I cannot say how happy I am that I decided to go with Dr. Lefkowitz. He is very thorough, meticulous and clear in his communication. This has been true through the consultation, surgery and post surgery. You feel like part of a family with Dr. L and his staff. The only reason I rated five stars is because there was not an option for more. closing quote icon
