After Weight Loss Before & Afters Case #4215
This 26-year-old woman saw how her body had altered after pregnancy, and wanted to make a change. She was particularly unhappy with her lower body, where her abdominal muscles had stretched during childbirth and her "love handles" had grown noticeably. Despite exercise and health-conscious dietary choices, she could not seem to achieve the flat tummy and slim hips she wanted. To find out how plastic surgery after childbirth could help restore and tighten her lower half, she made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles.
In her consultation, this patient explained her goals and her surgeon recommended specific procedures to meet her needs. Based on his recommendation, this patient chose to undergo a mini tummy tuck. Typically, most moms who want to correct loose abdominal muscles after pregnancy will need a full tummy tuck to achieve an appropriate level of correction, but in some cases where the muscles have not been stretched quite as severely, a mini procedure may be enough.
This patient also received power-assisted liposuction of the abdomen and hips. The type of liposuction utilizes a vibrating cannula to remove fat with more precision than many other techniques, and less damage to surrounding tissues.
As her postoperative photos show, this patient's results are healing beautifully. Her mini tummy tuck has flattened her lower abdomen considerably, and power-assisted liposuction has smoothed her "love handles" and taken inches off her waist. She is glad to have her pre-baby body back and overall is very happy with her Beverly Hills abdominoplasty.
