Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty: Case 8 (13457)
Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty: Case 8 (13457) This 49 year old woman was referred by a friend of our practice for breast and body contouring. She wanted improvement in loose skin in the lower tummy and breast lift. She was 5'6" and 135#, wearing a 38 D bra (which didn't fit well). Her exam suggested mild-moderate looseness of the abdominal wall muscle support and skin. There were stretch marks below the belly button (and an incidental hernia at its base). We performed a limited abdominoplasty: liposuction, short-scar skin tightening, and full muscle tightening (lipo-abdominoplasty). Liposuction was done to contour the flanks. She also had breast lift; these procedures together are often called a "Mommy-Makeover." After healing she wore a 36 C-D bra and had better posture and abdominal tone.
