This 36 year old woman was searching for what could be described as a Mommy Makeover. She had two previous C-sections and wanted help in getting back to her "pre-Mom" appearance. We discussed Abdominoplasty, popularly known as "Tummy Tuck." It was decided that she would be best served with an abdominoplasty and upper abdominal and flank liposuction. The abdominal muscles were also tightened, giving her a slimmer waistline. This is what we refer to as an extended Tummy Tuck, since skin was removed from the sides, or flanks, necessitating a longer than average scar. She felt some discomfort for the first few days, but was up on her feet and starting gentle activites in three days. She was back to normal in about a month.
