With my line of work, often seeing is believing. That‚Äôs why today we are profiling two of our patients who underwent drastic tummy tuck transformations. These women have very different body types, so you can see how plastic surgery can benefit just about anyone.
Our first transformation comes from a patient with extra skin on the abdomen from having multiple children. The laxity of the skin in this area is very common after the stomach has been stretched multiple times from pregnancy. As you can see this woman would not be able to lose anymore weight or do any more crunches to improve her stomach. Her skin was not able to regain its tightness and elasticity.
A tummy tuck to remove this extra skin was performed allowing her to have a flat stomach once again. The photo shows her stomach before surgery and three months post operation.
In our second before and after plastic surgery photo features a patient that had about 5 pounds of tissue removed from the abdominal area to give her back a flat and more appealing stomach. Additionally in this patient a small amount of liposuction was performed to improve the contour.
The photo below shows the transformation of the patient‚Äôs stomach from before to three months post operation.
Tummy tuck and sculpting procedures can be performed for women of different sizes, shapes, and anatomy. As you can see from these two examples sometimes only skin needs to be tightened and other times a more extensive procedure with contouring can be done.
Make an appointment at our Reno plastic surgery office and see how I can tailor body procedures specifically to your body type.
