Possible tummy tuck for lower abdomen
I would agree that a mini tummy tuck would be adequate as the abdominal profile of the upper abdomen is excellent. In the mini tuck the tissue below the belly button is removed and limited muscle tightening is done. This should be enough with a quicker recovery time and more limited scar as compared to a full tummy tuck. The cost will depend on the surgeon.
The area on the chest can be dealt with simultaneously and will require a modified gynaecomastia procedure but will lead to a scar at the level of the fold under the breast.
Scar management after this is a key.
Hope this answers your questions.
I lost 130 lbs and have extra skin on my stomach area, would this need a tummy tuck or is there another procedure?
Hello, Thank you so much for your questions and pictures. The Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck is the operation consistent in the removal of the excess of skinand fat abdominal and in the correction of the flaccidity muscle. Best wishes!
Costs for body contouring are variable based on length of operation and exactly what procedures will be performed. it is best to be seen in person for a consultation. You look like you will benefit from body contouring with removal of your excess skin. Good luck
Hi and thanks for the question and photos. The only way to remove excess skin is by removing it. This would qualify as tummy tuck. You would benefit the most from a mini TT to remove the skin from the lower abdomen. The costs vary depending on the region so your best bet is to call surgeons in your area of interest and get quotes. Best of Luck - Dr Hardy...
Thank you for your questions and pictures. You would definitely be a candidate for a TT and a male breast skin reduction. Seek a consultation from a Board Certified PS.
Thank you for your question. You would be a candidate for tummy tuck. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the tummy muscles. I invented the MALIBU tummy tuck. It gives a very natural looking tummy and belly button. In addition pain and recovery are significantly less versus traditional techniques. It is not uncommon for patients to take only Tylenol for pain after surgery.
Do I need TT after weight loss
Thank you for your question. Based on the picture loose skin of yours can be corrected with tummy tuck. Please consult with a board certified PS for evaluation.
Thank you for your question and the photos. You look like a great candidate for a male Tummy Tuck and also chest skin reduction. Best of luck
Extra skin on my stomach area, would i need a tummy tuck?
Thank you for your question. First of all congratulations on your weight loss. You appear to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure to get rid of the excess skin for your lower abdomen, you can also get rid of the excess skin on your chest along with the tummy tuck. Prices vary a lot according to experience and board certification of the plastic surgeon, facilities, quality of the practice, region, etc... If you're willing to travel medical tourism is an attractive way to get quality results at a lower price. Cosmetic surgery in Colombia represents an increasingly attractive option for consumers looking for the ultimate combination of quality, price, availability, service, enjoyment, and value. Prices for plastic surgery procedures can be very affordable, and often 30-50% less than in the United States and Europe. However, when considering this option don’t settle for less than a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with specialized expertise in this procedure.
If your weight has been stable for the last 6 months, then you are likely looking at a permanent amount of skin laxity. This amount of laxity will require excision by a tummy tuck and by excision of the loose skin of your chest. Consult a plastic surgeon in your area and discuss your options. Costs vary widely but even the cheapest surgeons will likely charge in excess of $8000 to perform this amount of surgery.Good luck and best wishes.
