Tummy Tuck – 34 Year Old Mother

The patient is a 34-year-old female who is unhappy with the shape of her stomach and thighs after childbirth.  She had always been athletic with a “good physique”, and feels like her figure had been lost with the changes that occur with pregnancy.  She wanted to get rid of excess skin, tighten her abdomen, and remove extra fat from her stomach and upper thighs.

She was undergoing a planned hysterectomy, and wanted her tummy tuck performed at the same time.  A high-lateral tension abdominoplasty with liposuction of the inner and outer thighs was performed.

She was able to return to the gym after a routine 2 month rest period, and is happy with the rejuvenated appearance of her stomach and legs.
