This patient came into our offices wanting to eliminate the loose, slightly hanging skin on her abdominal region.
During the tummy tuck procedure, excess abdominal skin is excised and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened. Excess fat around the region is removed using liposuction when deemed necessary. In order to remove the excess skin and to access the abdominal muscles, an horizontal incision will be created, right underneath the region underwear rests. As seem above, the tummy tuck incision will be placed low enough that any resulting scar will not be visible.
This particular patient had liposuction of the flank/hip area in addition to her tummy tuck so that her figure could be further enhanced. As you can see, she also chose to undergo the breast augmentation procedure to bring about a more comprehensive body makeover.
