This patient had an extended tummy tuck performed. I routinely perform liposuction of the abdomen and flanks with my tummy tuck procedures and we did so in this case as well. The combination of the extended tummy tuck and liposuction of the flanks and abdomen allowed us to get an abdomen and waistline that is thin, flat, and tight. The belly button is particularly important with a tummy tuck so we always pay special attention to the appearance of the belly button. Finally, we place the scar as low as possible so that it can be hidden by most underwear and bikini bottoms.
