This patient came in to talk to me about getting an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, at my Indiana practice. She has 4 children, including twins, and had undergone a Cesarean section delivery. She was a good candidate for a "full" tummy tuck, which is the most common abdominoplasty for patients with loose, excess tissue both above and below the belly button.

The procedure involves a horizontal incision just above the pubic area so that it is easily concealed by underwear or bikini bottoms. In a full tummy tuck, I tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin. I also create a new opening for the navel in a natural-looking position.

Because of this patient's skin type, her scars thickened a bit more than what we generally see, but she accepted this as a tradeoff for the more attractive contour of her waist.

As you can see in the "after" photos, her silhouette is dramatically slimmer, and she says she feels more confident both in and out of clothes.
