Tummy Tuck: The Patient
The patient was a 58-year-old female who had managed to reduce her weight by 40kg through a diet and exercise program.
She was happy with the health improvements but was concerned by the contour of her lower abdomen.
She consulted with Dr Hunt regarding the issues she was having with the contour of her abdomen as well as the difficulty she was having with chafing of the skin under the fold of the flap.
Tummy Tuck: The Procedure
The patient had an extended high lateral tension abdominoplasty with liposuction of the abdomen where approximately 7kg of excess skin and fat were removed from the lower abdomen.
Tummy Tuck: The Results
The result seen at six months following her surgery with the scar located below the line of her bikini briefs.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health professional.
