Tummy Tuck Before & Afters Case #3601
This 68-year-old woman was unhappy with how her body had changed with time and with having children. Tired of the excess stretched and fatty skin that hung down over her abdomen, she decided to explore her options for Los Angeles plastic surgery, starting with finding a qualified plastic surgeon who had a great deal of experience performing abdominal rejuvenation surgery.
When she met with her surgeon, she explained her concerns while her surgeon listened intently. To address the excess skin on her abdomen, her surgeon suggested that he perform a tummy tuck, which removes the skin and tightens the abdominal muscles to make the stomach look slimmer and healthier. However, since the excess skin had allowed fatty deposits to accumulate on her abdomen, her surgeon recommended that he perform liposuction as well to slim her abdomen further. The procedures could be easily combined to minimize her downtime after surgery.
Three months after her tummy tuck in Los Angeles, she returned to have her "after" photos taken. Her photos show dramatic improvement in the look of her abdomen, which appears thinner and emphasizes her waste more than in her "before" photos. If you look closely, you may see that she is wearing Mepiform gel tape on her waistline incision. We encourage our patients to do this following surgery to improve their healing. She was very pleased with the results.
