Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

After pregnancy or weight loss, many patients are unable to eliminate the damaged excess skin and fat of the abdominal wall. Very often, stretch marks are present which indicate damaged elastic fibers in the skin from being overstretched. Often, the underlying muscles are stretched apart and have lost their tightness. Despite vigorous exercise, many patients are unable to correct the appearance of the abdominal wall, because of the damaged elastic fibers and the malposition of the muscles. Fortunately, these patients may be able to eliminate excess fat and skin by undergoing a tummy tuck. Chicago and Northwest Indiana patients can undergo this procedure right next door to our office at a state-of-the-art surgical center in Merrillville/Hobart, just minutes from Munster and Valparaiso.

A tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically change the appearance of a protruding abdomen, and can improve body contours.

During a tummy tuck, our Chicago and Northwest Indiana patients will have excess fat removed from their abdomens. Next, the underlying muscles will be repositioned, resulting in a flatter stomach and improved waist contour. The procedure can provide you with a dramatic improvement. We also offer mini-tummy tuck procedures to eligible Chicago and Indiana patients. A mini-tummy tuck involves less skin removal but usually more liposuction. As such, the cost for the mini-tummy tuck is slightly less than that of a traditional tummy tuck, but not all patients are good candidates for the less-expensive procedure.

Dr. Malczewski performs numerous tummy tuck procedures on patients from all over Northwest Indiana and Chicago. We can provide you with excellent results at a fraction of the cost of Chicago plastic surgeons. The procedure is done right next door to our office at a state-of-the-art surgical center that is fully licensed and accredited. Most patients go home after surgery but arrangements can be made to stay overnight if you travel from a distance to undergo tummy tuck. Chicago patients, for example, may want to discuss overnight options with our facility. Most patients from Munster, Schererville, and Valparaiso will go home the same day after a tummy tuck.

During your consultation we will discuss the procedure and its costs with you at length. We want to ensure that you are completely comfortable and confident with our team and the tummy tuck procedure itself.

Please contact our staff at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Northwest Indiana today if you are considering a tummy tuck near Chicago or in Northwest Indiana.

Liposuction

For patients across the United States and in Chicago, liposuction is one of the most popular procedures performed by cosmetic surgeons. Dr. Malczewski offers patients in Chicago, Northwest Indiana, Munster, Schererville, and Valparaiso liposuction services to enhance body contours by sculpting a shapelier figure. Offering a wide range of liposuction techniques, Dr. Malczewski is experienced in traditional liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and power-assisted liposuction. We are dedicated to offering new and advanced procedures, and some of the newer techniques allow Dr. Malczewski to remove fat more efficiently and safely. Liposuction can sculpt the body and predictably remove fatty deposits in the neck, male breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, knees, upper arms, and calves.

Our practice is well known for our excellent liposuction results. We have patients coming in from all over Northwest Indiana and Chicago to have liposuction performed by Dr. Malczewski. In fact, patients come from Munster, Schererville, Valparaiso, and as far as La Porte, New Buffalo, and South Bend. The procedure is performed next door to our office at a state-of-the-art surgical center that is fully licensed and accredited. Safety is of the utmost importance and Dr. Malczewski only uses accredited, certified operating room facilities and state-of-the-art equipment and monitoring. During liposuction, anesthesia is administered by a fully trained, licensed, and experienced anesthesiologist and nurse anesthesiologists.

Most often, liposuction is performed under general anesthesia or deep sedation, but small spot areas can be treated under local anesthesia. The average cost for our Indiana and Chicago liposuction patients is priced per area. When multiple areas are addressed, the cost per area decreases.
