This is a 52 year old women who had had two children. She had attempted weight loss through diet and exercise, but she could not rid herself of the excess fat and hanging skin in the central abdominal region. I performed a traditional tummy tuck by keeping the scar as low as possible. She could wear a bikini and her scar would be covered. I also did suction-assisted lipectomy (traditional liposuction). Dr. Noelle Sherber did laser scar treatments which is why her scars have nearly completely faded. This is an incredible adjunct to surgery that can make thick, red ropey scars fade away.
