This woman, age 50, scheduled a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Galante in Schererville to find out if he could improve the appearance of her abdomen. In particular, she was unhappy with the lax abdominal skin and excess fat that hung down around her waist. Dr. Galante determined that this patient was a good candidate for a complete tummy tuck because her areas of concern were above and below her belly button.

Dr. Galante performed the tummy tuck surgery, technically called abdominoplasty, at the Lake Park Surgery Center in Hobart, Indiana, with the patient sleeping under general anesthesia. He created an incision that ran horizontally just above the pubic bone and ended beyond each hip bone at the patient's sides. A second incision was placed around the patient's navel. Dr. Galante then repaired the abdominal muscles and removed excess fat and skin. Some of the patient's stretch marks were also removed along with the excess skin. 

The "after" photos show the patient's flatter, firmer abdomen and shapely belly button. The resulting scar is easily hidden beneath her undergarments.

To find out if abdominoplasty is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Galante at either his Schererville or Valparaiso, Indiana, plastic surgery offices.
