Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty: Case 3 (10730)
Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty: Case 3 (10730) This 39 year old mother of three was referred by a co-worker, and chose Dr. Graham's practice after researching several practices. She wanted a more attractive abdominal appearance.
Alternatives were discussed, but she chose standard abdominoplasty to achieve the most improvement of stretch marks, contour and muscle tone. She had a keloid scar reaction from a previous C-section. Before surgery she had loose, protruding central and lower abdominal muscles, and a protruding belly button (umbilical hernia).
Removal of excess skin extended from the prior C-section scar / pubic area, to just at the umbilicus. Therefore a portion of her old umbilicus site remains as a small vertical scar. The hernia was repaired. Her tone and posture improved greatly. Her scar is darkened but low and inconspicuous. Her dress size went from 10 to size 4.
Also she had a concurrent breast augmentation. Some surgeons call this combination a "mommy make-over."
