Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) in the fuller patient

Showing only the results of thin or "ideal" patients amounts (in my opinion) to professional "trickery" since it does not address the majority of the patients we see in our offices. A good technique should be equally applicable to patients with different body weights or trunk shapes. My tracing technique can deliver results irrespective of pre-existing weights. The essential criterion governing safety is the so-called Body/Mass index (Height/Weight Ratio). The result is seen at three months following surgery for the proper visualization of scar placement.
