After doing extensive research for a board Certified Plastic Surgeon, this 38 year old woman came to see Dr. Kayser for her tummy tuck. She has lost 75 pounds on her own without surgery and is now seen one year after a full abdominoplasty with abdominal wall tightening. A total of 2160 grams (five pounds) of tissue was removed and her waist improved almost 4 inches. The scars are well faded and totally within the bikini line and despite that all the stretch marks can never be removed in patients like this, the result and contour make the procedure will worth it. By the way, when viewing photos, make sure that garments are not used to hide what very well could be poor scars...
