Part skilled surgeon … part talented artist: What makes for a superior tummy tuck doctor

A tummy tuck is a prime example of a plastic surgery procedure where it’s important that the surgeon performing the surgery has an artistic eye.

This artistry is a talent that not every plastic surgeon has. But here at Kevitch and Chung — the Lehigh Valley’s premier plastic surgeons — we’re proud to showcase our before-and-after tummy tuck photos because they highlight our skills as both trained surgeons and mindful body sculptors.

When we do a tummy tuck, it’s not just about removing skin to solve your problem area. We also perform limited liposuction during the tummy tuck procedure to contour … shape … the abdominal area to make your body look more attractive by achieving an eye-pleasing hour-glass shape.

Also, when we do our tummy tucks, we’re very mindful of where we place the scars so that they visually fall within your bikini or underwear lines in order to make the incision not very noticeable. We also pay close attention to the resulting shape of your belly button. A tummy tuck can alter its shape. We make sure yours visually matches your new waistline (oval makes the body look longer; though men typically seem to want round belly buttons).

A tummy tuck is one of the more common procedures we perform here at Kevitch & Chung. Men and women across the Lehigh Valley come to us for this procedure because they are unhappy with their middle-age pouch that they can’t seem to lose no matter how much exercising and dieting they do. It’s extremely popular amongst women who want to regain their pre-pregnancy body and want to lose the lax skin … stretch marks … sagging belly buttons … they’ve left with after pregnancy.

As is the case with any plastic surgery procedure, make sure your doctor is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has the appropriate training and credentials to perform a tummy tuck. Drs. Kevitch and Chung are both members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. If you’re not comfortable with your doctor's responses and/or experience in this area, consider obtaining another opinion. We here at Kevitch & Chung have become known in the Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Reading, Pa., area for the safe, careful and superiorly attractive results achieved through our tummy tucks.
