26 year old female patient
This young lady is the mother of one and has the stretch marks and fatty deposits that many patients find disappointing. The patient has had a tummy tuck and thereby removing most of the bothersome areas in the lower abdomen. All of the tissue from a point above the naval down to the pubic hair is removed. The muscles are tightened and closure is completed. Note the definition of the abdominal muscles. This comes from the combination of procedures as liposuction in the waist area greatly compliments the tummy tuck. Shown 6 weeks post op. Improvements can continue for 8-10 months post op.
