Tummy Tuck Before & Afters Case #5336
This 34-year-old woman considered herself healthy, but felt bothered by large folds that covered her entire midsection and caused her to look heavy. She decided to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates to discuss her options to rejuvenate and improve the look of her body. During their consultation, she explained her goals, and her surgeon outlined her options before recommending a Los Angeles abdominoplasty procedure.
For some patients, abdominal "flabbiness" is due mainly to excess fat which can be removed through liposuction. In many cases, though, this looseness results from loose skin, lax abdominal muscles, or a combination of these problems. In these cases, these fatty bulges are most effectively removed through abdominoplasty or a combination of abdominoplasty and Beverly Hills liposuction. Although this patient had excess fat, the folds and "flab" on her abdomen were due mostly to loose muscles and excess skin, so her surgeon performed a tummy tuck to correct both problems at once.
This woman's surgical results have healed very nicely, and she loves that her large fatty folds are gone, revealing a smoother, much firmer look. Her abdominal muscles now appear much flatter, with tighter skin and tissue. Her tummy tuck procedure has significantly enhanced the appearance of her entire body, and she is very happy with her new shape.
