38 Year Old Tummy Tuck Patient, Mother of 6

Procedure Details


Abdominoplasty After Pregnancy

This case highlights the typical abdominal contour changes that occur after pregnancy. These changes usually include loose skin that may or may not hang over the mons pubis, abdominal muscle weakness with a protuberant tummy that may still look pregnant, and stretch marks. A full abdominoplasty can improve all these problems as it did in this case. The resulting scars are along the lower abdomen just above the pubic hairline and around the umbilicus.

Abdominoplasty does not address hip fullness which this patient desired to keep. If a patient wishes to decrease the size of the hips, this can be accomplished with some additional liposuction at the time of the tummy tuck as long as the skin tone in this area is good. If there is loose skin in addition to hip fullness, the tummy tuck can simply be extended to the hip and flank area to remove the excess fullness and tighten the skin in these areas. All procedures are customized to address each patients areas of concern, safely and effectively.
