Full tummy tuck with hernia repair
Dr. Luis Redondo
Thank you for submitting your pictures. From your pictures it appears that you have skin and muscles laxity from the chest bone to the pubic bone. You also have an 'outy' belly button that might be from hernia or just skin laxity. The good news is that all your findings can be corrected with tummy tuck surgery. The procedure will give you the followings: flat abdomen, narrow waist, better body posture, nice belly button, tighter pubic area. Additionally, most likely , you will lose significant amount of weight due to the muscles tightening that will reduce the amount of food that you will be able eat and the sense of hunger. Most of my patients return to light duty activity and are able to drive after 1 week. Return to normal physical activity takes 6 weeks. Always, consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons who operate in accredited surgery center for your safety. Check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive.
Best of luck,
