Abdominoplasty, or more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is surgery performed to remove sagging skin and excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen. The unwanted protrusion of the abdomen is usually a result of pregnancy, increase in weight or weight loss.
There are three layers to the abdominal wall that need to be corrected in an Abdominoplasty; the skin, the fatty tissue and the underlying muscle. All of these layers at some stage are stretched, weakened or increased in size resulting in an undesirable appearance. In many cases, the muscles and skin stretch so much that they do not return to normal regardless of the amount of diet and exercise. An Abdominoplasty can make an enormous change to a persons body contour.
This patient’s weight changes have left her with excess skin and fatty tissue around her lower abdomen in addition to stubborn stretch marks. To correct this, and give the patient her dream toned and trim tummy, Dr Dona removed the extra fat and skin, lifted her pubic area, tightened her six pack muscles (which over time had separated) and narrowed the waist with liposuction.
