A tummy tuck helped this 61 year old nursing assistant tighten the loose, sagging abdominal skin that was making her feel overly self-conscious about her body. This cosmetic surgery patient from Indiana had given birth to 4 children, all through natural childbirth. Pregnancy can be very wearing on the body, stretching and tearing underlying tissue and muscle. As a result of her pregnancies, this woman experienced awkward, drooping skin and tissue that her own efforts and regular exercise schedule just didn't seem to fix.
As a medical professional, this patient knew how to practice healthy habits. She didn't have hernias or large stretchmarks, which would have posed extra challenges when performing her tummy tuck in Indiana.
Her tummy tuck was performed at an outpatient cosmetic surgery center in Munster, Indiana under general anesthesia. During her surgery, she received sutures to her abdominal muscles to hold them in a tighter, more naturally pleasing position; her excess skin was also cut away, in the process removing an abdominal scar from a past surgical procedure and leaving only a scar below her bikini line.
Her healthy habits prior to surgery helped her recover quickly and enjoy a more comfortable recovery. She healed well, and is very pleased with the way her better contour allows her to enjoy the looks as well as the health benefits of her good muscle tone. Where she used to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about her belly, she can now enjoy the benefits of a healthier, more confident look.
