- Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
This 28-year-old woman came to see our doctors after losing 50 lbs following her pregnancies and was left with unwanted skin, fat, and stretch marks on her abdomen. She visited our cosmetic clinic and found out that an abdominoplasty
or tummy tuck
would be the best option to rejuvenate her abdomen. Like many women in the Austin, Texas area this patient wanted to tighten and restore her body to its pre-pregnancy condition.
During her consultation, our doctors pointed out that only an abdominoplasty
would remove enough loose skin and fat from her abdomen to get the results she was looking for. She also had many deep stretch marks (striae), and he explained that these can only be removed by surgical excision. They showed her that most of the skin and fat from her belly button to her underwear line could be removed easily during surgery.
In surgery, our doctors were able to remove many of the stretch marks from her lower abdomen and then tightened the muscles underneath back to their pre-pregnancy shape and tone. He made her incisions low on her tummy so that she can continue to wear all types of clothing.
At her last follow-up appointment she was thrilled with the results of her body contouring
procedure and commented that her incision had healed much better than many of her friends. She was pleased to have her curves back, and said that clothes started fitting her better almost immediately after her operation.
