Before: 42 year old African American patient with significant loose, hanging abdominal skin, along with excess heaviness around the upper and lower abdomen and flanks. Patient has tried exercise and dieting without much success in restoring her pre pregnancy abs. She had tried some non surgical modalities including Cool Sculpt and Liposonix without the dramatic change she was hoping for. After: 1 year after an abdominoplasty, “tummy tuck”, with creation of a more youthful belly button, well concealed scar along the bikini line, and flat abs. Her weakened rectus abdominal muscles were tightened. Excess flank and abdominal fat was suctioned out via Smart Lipo.
