Full Tummy Tuck Needed In NC? (photo)

Hello I am in need of a full tummy tuck and was wondering if based on my photos could I get a really good result? I am 4'10" and 119lbs in my early 20's and have had children. My husband had a vasectomy so now that we are done having babies I need to fix my body. Can someone recommend a dr in NC. Military discount would be a bonus! Also do you think I am a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift?

Based upon the posted photos you are a good candidate for full TT and muscle repair. As for discounted surgeries very hard to advise. Fee range from $6,000 to $10,000.

From the photos you appear to be an excellent candidate for a TT, and you should anticipate a nice improvement. I can't tell from the photos about fat injections to the butt. When your have a consultation, discuss with the surgeon. 

When you are ready for an in person consultation, RealSelf has listings of surgeons in your area. You should consider cross referencing the listings from the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (plasticsurgery dot org). A listing in the ASPS website assures you that your surgeon is not only board certified,  but also is a member in good standing of the major plastic surgery organization in the U. S. Thank you for your question, best wishes.

Based on the photos you have provided I believe you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck.  This would address and excess skin.  Furthermore, tightening of the abdominal wall (muscles) will further enhance your result.  After pregnancy many women have more laxity to the abdominal wall resulting in a round appearance.  It is difficult to say whether fat injections for your buttocks would be appropriate based the these photos.  Best of luck.

You could be an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck. You would particularly benefit from muscle repair to make the tummy more flat and to recreate more of a waistline. The permanent sutures that are used to flatten and tighten the abdominal wall are typically placed in the midline. The rectus abdominis muscles, prior to pregnancy, are lined up immediately side-by-side. Expansion of the abdominal wall during pregnancy allows the muscles to stretch apart, leaving a weak layer of fascia (connective tissue) spanning the gap between the two muscles – the medical term for which is diastasis. The midline tightening sutures correct the diastasis and bring the rectus muscles back into a 'side-by-side' configuration, flattening the abdominal wall in the process.

Although this midline tightening dramatically enhances the abdominal profile, it often does adequately address the fact that pregnancy can also wreak havoc on the waist, turning what was formerly an 'hourglass' figure into something that is more cylindrical in shape. For several years now I have been using permanent 'internal corset' sutures, placed laterally in the abdominal wall, that draw the waist inward and restore some of the hourglass effect of abdominal concavity at the waistline in frontal view. The addition of these sutures to midline tightening, and in some cases in place of midline tightening, has allowed me to achieve even more impressive postoperative results.

Many plastic surgeons, myself included offer special pricing for military and their spouses as a way to show appreciate for your service. Thank you.

Am I a good tummy tuck candidate?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

From the appearance of your photos, I think you are a very good tummy tuck.  With regards to a Brazilian butt lift, if you are otherwise healthy that would also be an option but without photos of the area, I can't comment on the results you can expect.

Many good plastic surgeons in that area

Thank you for the question and the photos.  There are a handful of great plastic surgeons in that area.  I would  recommend that you see Dr. Hunstad in Charlotte.  He is one of the top tummy tuck plastic surgeons and I have direct training experience of his patient care and surgical results.

All the best,

Dr Remus Repta
