This 41 year old mother of 2 teenagers has enough fullness and extra skin to require a circumfrential torsoplasty, in which the excess skin is removed all the way around the waistline. Without this approach, she would be left with “dog ears” or puckering of the extra skin at the sides of her waist. She feels the extra length of the scar is a great tradeoff for the way she now fits in clothes and feels about her shape. Note how the scar has faded. Dr. Hoffman is diligent in the manner in which he sutures to give good scar quality. Her Torsoplasty (Extended Tummy Tuck) included Liposuction of her waistline, back and inner and outer thighs.
