This 44-year-old mother wanted a mommy makeover with a tummy tuck and liposuction of the upper back, axilla, waist and hips. This combination is very common in my practice, and is a three hour outpatient procedure. It is interesting that it takes about a year to see the final curves as the patient "shrinks" as the tissue becomes more normal. Interesting too is that this patient is seen in the post-op photos at only five weeks! Imagine how this woman feels knowing that it is going to get better and better as time goes by. Notice in the pre-op front view that the patient has the loose skin from the belly button down and the pudgy tissue above the belly button.
