This woman is a patient in her early 50s that wished to regain the contour of her midsection. She is in great shape and physical condition but, like many women, the muscles in her abdominal wall have been stretched due to pregnancy. She would like to get rid of some of the excess skin and fat in the area.
She decided on a combination of procedures. During a single surgical session, she underwent a full Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), with resection of muscles, and removal and resection of excess skin and tissue. She also had Liposuction of multiple areas including the upper and mid abdomen and flanks, as well as the chest and back. Approximately 750cc of fat was removed.
