Tummy Tuck Before & Afters Case #5277
This 49 year old woman was considering a Beverly Hills abdominoplasty procedure to reverse the effects of her 2 pregnancies. As you can see, she had a substantial amount of loose, excess skin on her stomach, which didn't "bounce back" after pregnancy.
An abdominoplasty, also known as "tummy tuck" surgery, does much more than simply removing excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During this plastic surgery procedure, the surgeon also retightens the abdominal muscles, which can become stretched out during pregnancy or as a result of significant weight fluctuations. In addition, the abdominal muscles are naturally prone to loosening over time for many people.
After pregnancy, many women mistakenly think that through diet and exercise they can re-tone and re-sculpt their stomach. While eating a healthy diet and exercising certainly helps the abdominal area stay in shape, no amount of sit ups or rice cakes will tighten and slim an abdomen that has become overly stretched out. Surgical tightening is the optimal choice.
This woman's surgery was performed on an outpatient basis and her recovery was fairly comfortable and quick. The "after" pictures published here were taken 8 months following surgery.
