This 43 year old patient underwent full abdominoplasty. This is a great example of the type of transformation that can occur after someone has a tummy tuck. Abdominal exercises are more satisfying when the loose skin has been tightened and the underlying muscles can show through. Very often a surgical procedure inspires a patient to go on and do more things to enhance their appearance. It can be a big first step in improving one’s image of oneself.
