Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures

Patient 01

Tummy Tuck Patient 1

Tummy Tuck Patient 1

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.

Patient 02

This patient desired a body with a slimmer, more taut waist and rounder, bigger breasts. She also had developed mild stretch marks just below her belly button that she wanted to get rid of.

In this case, the tummy tuck worked twofold: it helped the patient acheive a more aesthetically-pleasing stomach and reduced the visibility of the stretch marks that had formed on her lower abdominals.

During her tummy tuck procedure, her abdominal muscles were tightened and her excess abdominal skin was excised, giving the abdominal region a tighter look, with a reduction in the visibililty of lower abdominal stretch marks. The incision created to exicise the excess skin and to tighten the abdominal muscles was placed far enough below the area underwear rests so that any resulting scar, though minimally visible, will remain hidden from sight when wearing underwear and swimsuits.

In order to bring about bigger, rounder breasts, a breast augmentation procedure was performed using saline breast implants.

Patient 03

This patient came into our offices desiring procedures that would lift and enhance the shape of her breast and get rid of the excess fat and skin that had developed around her abdominal region. She also had an excess amount of stretch marks on both her upper and lower abdominals that she wanted to remove.

The tummy tuck procedure was able to reduce the amount of stretch marks that appeared on the upper and lower torso through the surgical excision of loose, excess skin and the stretching of the remaining skin to bring about a tight, contoured tummy. Liposuction was also performed on her abdominals, waist, flanks, and thighs so that her abdominal region could be further sculpted. The incision used during the tummy tuck was placed low enough that her will hide any potential scarring from view, as can be seen above.

The breast lift that was performed in conjuction with the tummy tuck was able to not only bring about a more pleasing breast shape and placement of the nipples, but also was able to provide relief for her back pain.

Patient 04

As can be seen in this patient’s “before" picture, she had developed excess fat and skin around her abdominal region that she desired to get rid of. In order to bring about the more contoured and slimmer tummy as shown in her “after" picture, the tummy tuck procedure and liposuction of targeted areas were utilized in conjuction.

During the tummy tuck aspect of the procedure, a horizontal incision was made, just below the line where the underwear rests, ensuring that any resulting scar would not be visible. Using this incision, the underlying abdominal muscles were tightened and a satisfactory amount of excess abdominal skin was removed.

Liposuction was performed on the upper abdominals, the lower abdominals, the hips, and the flanks. By peforming liposuction on these select areas, a more comprehensive and pleasing contouring of the abdominal region was able to be achieved.

Patient 05

As you can see, this patient had a visibly evident excess of abdominal skin, with some excess abdominal fat present. By using the tummy tuck procedure with some liposuction on certain targeted regions, a more contoured and taut tummy was able to be sculpted.

During this patient’s tummy tuck procedure, we made sure to place the incision low enough on the abdomen that any resulting scar would be left covered by underwear and swimsuits. The underlying abdominal muscles were tightened with sutures and the excess abdominal skin was pulled down and trimmed so that a smooth, even abdominal region was left behind.

Liposuction was performed on her flanks, waist, and hip regions so that we could give her an abdominal region that was optimally sculpted.

This patient also chose to undergo a breast augmentation so that she could achieve rounder breasts and a bigger cup size.

Patient 06

This patient had developed a great deal of loose, excess abdominal skin that gave a drooping look all over her abdominal region, as shown in her before pictures. n order to give her the thinner, firmer abs in her after pictures, we performed liposuction in select areas on top of her tummy tuck.

We created an incision, just below her underwear line so that any post-op scar would remain hidden from view, so that we could access her underlying abdominal muscles in order to surgically tighten them with sutures. We trimmed away the excess skin on her abdominals and stretched it across her tummy so that a more taut look could be created about her abdominal region.

We performed liposuction on her upper abdominals, her waist, her flanks, and her hips so that an even slimmer figure and more pleasing contour about the abdominals could be achieved.

This patient also chose to undergo the breast lift procedure so that she could reposition her sagging breasts into a more upright and perky position.

Patient 07

As her before pictures show, this patient had developed loose, excess skin around her abdominals over the years, that hung over, creating a visually evident crease as well as a slight spare tire effect.

We used the tummy tuck procedure to giver her the flatter, firmer tummy as shown in her after pictures. During her tummy tuck procedure, we made sure to create the incision as low as possible on her abdomen so that underwear and swimsuits could cover any post-op scarring. The abdominal muscles were tightened to achieve an even firmer abdomen, after which the excess abdominal muscles were trimmed, with the remaining abdominal skin draped over the tummy in such a way that a smooth look about the tummy could be produced.

We also performed liposuction on her hips, waist, and flanks so that the most optimal aesthetics could be brought about.

Patient 08

This patient had developed an excess of abdominal skin and fat throughout the years. During our pre-op consultation, it was determined that a tummy tuck in conjunction with liposuction of select regions around the abdomen would best give her the flatter, tigher abdomen that she was looking for.

During her tummy tuck, we made sure to create the incision low enough on her tummy that any scarring would remain hidden underneath her underwear and swimsuits. Using this incision, we were able to access her underlying abdominal muscles so that her abdomen could be made as firm as possible, as abdominal muscles tend to loose their strength and elasticity as people get older. We then trimmed away the excess abdominal skin by pulling down the excess skin past the incision line so that the remaining abdominal skin would create a smooth contour about the region after the excess skin had been excised.

Also during this procedure, we performed liposuction on her waist, her hips, and her flanks so that we could remove the excess fat in those regions. This helped to create the slimmer, more contoured abdominal region seen in her after pictures.

Patient 09

This patient came into our officed wanting to get rid of the loose, excess skin that had developed around her midsection. She also wanted to get rid of the visible stretch marks that had developed in that region as well, as can be seen in her before pictures. During her pre-op consutation, we decided that a tummy tuck and liposuction of the waist, flanks, and hips would be able to best achieve the results that she was looking for.

During her tummy tuck procedure, we created a horizonal incision along the underside of her tummy. We made sure to place it low enough that any scarring would be hidden from view by underwear and swimsuits. The incision was used to access the underlying abdominal muscles so that we could surgically tighten the muscles with sutures, creating an even firmer abdomen. We removed the excess skin by pulling this excess skin down past the incision line and trimming it away. This also allowed us to reduce the amount of stretch marks.

Patient 10

This patient presented with an abdominal region that had developed excess skin and fat, with a bit of stretch marks in the center area that she wanted to get rid of. During her pre-op consultation, we determined that a tummy tuck- or abdominoplasty, as it is technically known- in combination with liposuction of select areas would best bring about the results that she was looking for.

During the tummy tuck, we placed the incision low enough on her tummy that the post-op scar, as minimally- visible as it is, would remain hidden underneath underwear and swimsuits. We tightened her abdominal muscles prior to trimming off the excess abdominal skin, making sure to place the remaining abdominal skin over her tummy so that a smooth contour is left behind.

We also performed liposuction of the upper abdomen, the waist, the flanks, and the hips to better sculpt the abdomen.

Patient 11

This patient had developed an excess of abdominal skin and fat, creating a “poochy" belly region. She had also developed visible stretch marks along her lower abdomen that she wanted to get rid of. It was determined that the tummy tuck procedure would be most approriate at giving her the results that she desired.

During her tummy tuck, we took care to create the incision low enough along the underside of her tummy so that any post-op scarring would not be visible when wearing underwear and swimsuits. We tightened the abdominal musles through this incision in order to give the patient as firm of abs as possible. We pulled the excess skin past the created incision and trimmed it such that the remaining skin was able to be laid across the tummy to create a smooth contour.

We also peformed liposuction on the hips, the flanks, and the waist during the procedure, giving the patient more aesthetically-pleasing curves.

Patient 12

As can be seen in the before pictures, this patient had developed an excess of loose, hanging abdominal skin and fat, creatinga slight “spare tire" effect. During her pre-op consultation, it was determined that tummy tuck with liposuction of the surrounding areas would be best able to achieve the results that she desired.

We created an incision that was low enough on her tummy that the resulting post-op scar could be hidden when wearing underwear and swimsuits. Through this incision, we were able to access the underlying abdominal muscles so that we could tighten them with sutures, giving the patient firm abds. After the abdominal muscles had been sufficiently tightened, we pulled down the excess skin past the incision line in order to trim off a sufficient amount, giving the patient a smooth, even abdominal region.

During the procedure, we implemented the abilities of the liposuction procedure in order to remove excess fat that had developed around the patient’s hips, flanks, and waists, creating a figure that was enhanced even further.

Patient 13

As shown in the before pictures, this patient used to have an abdominal region with excess skin and fat and the presence of visible stretch marks. During her pre-op consultation, we decided that a tummy tuck accompanied by slight liposuction to various areas around her abdominals would be able to best achieve the results that she desired.

By creating an incision low enough on her tummy, we were able to ensure that any resulting post-op scar would remain hidden beneath her underwear or swimsuit. Using the incision, we were able to access the abdominal muscles so that we could surgically tighten them with sutures, giving the patient firm abdominals. We pulled the excess abdominal skin past the incision so that we could trim off enough of the excess that the remaining skin could be placed over the tummy in a smooth manner.

Liposuction of the flanks, waist, and hips was able to provide optimal enhancement of the abdominal region.

Patient 14

This patient had developed a relatively severe case of stretch marks on her abdomen. She also had a bit of loose, excess skin that created a “poochy" effect on her tummy.

During her tummy tuck procedure, we created an incision low enough on her abdomen such that any resulting post-op scar would be abe to be hidden with underwear and swimsuits. We surgically tightened her abdominal muscles with sutures so that we could bring about a firmer abdominal region. We then pulled her excess abdominal skin down past the incision so that we could trim off the excess. Trimming off the excess abdominal skin was able to reduce the amount of stretch marks on certain areas of her tummy.

We employed the power of liposuction on strategic areas on and around her abdomen, such as the waist, the flanks, and the hips.

This patient had developed loose, excess abominal skin over the years that she wanted to get rid of. During her pre-op consultation, we determined that she would be a good candidate for the tummy tuck procedure.

As is evident in her after picture, we placed the tummy tuck incision low enough on her tummy that underwear and swimwear would easily be able to hide it from view. Although the scar is relatively visible at this point in the patient’s recovery, once full results are realized, the scar should satisfactorily fade away.

Through the created incision, we were able to the reach the abdominal muscles which were surgically tightened with sutures to give the patient as firm of abs as possible. The excess skin was then pulled down so that any skin that appeared past the incision line could be removed.

We also performed slight liposuction on the hips, flanks, and waist in order to best sculpt her abdomen.

We were able to place the tummy tuck incision underneath the line that underwear rests so that any remaining post-op scar can be hidden from view when wearing underwear and swimwear. We tightened her abdominal muscles through this incision so that we could give her firmer abdominals. We trimmed away any excess skin that fell below the incision so that the remaining skin could be placed across her tummy smoothly and tautly.

We also performed liposuction during the procedure on areas such as the hips and waist so that we were able to more optimally sculpt her tummy than through a tummy tuck alone.
