This 37-year-old mother of two visited our Schererville, Indiana, plastic surgery practice to reduce the negative effects two pregnancies and two Cesarean section deliveries had had on the appearance of her abdomen. Women commonly find that diet and exercise aren't enough when trying to restore their bodies after giving birth, so they turn to plastic surgery. Dr. Galante recommended a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess skin and fat and to tighten her abdominal muscles for a more contoured appearance.
During her consultation, she expressed her desire to wear bikinis. Her “before” photos reveal a rippling effect caused by excess skin that remained in her midsection following pregnancy. Dr. Galante made an incision in her pubic region and around her belly button to tighten the abdominal muscles and the abdominal wall. Once this was complete, Dr. Galante removed excess skin and fat to create a tighter, smoother appearance.
After her surgery, she returned to Dr. Galante’s office to have pictures taken and to express how happy she was with her new body. Her “after” photos show a smoother abdomen, and the incision is easily hidden beneath her bikini line. She now says she feels proud to wear a bikini. Indiana plastic surgeon perform tummy tucks according to their experience and training, so it's important to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon for optimal results. If you are considering a tummy tuck, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Galante at either his Schererville or his Valparaiso plastic surgery office.
