Before & Afters - Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
This is a lady that I did an abdominoplasty on and liposuctioned the flanks in 2013. As you can see she has excessive loose skin in the abdomen as well as fat in the abdomen. The post op pictures are taken in 2022. This is a 9 year follow up on her. This sho s the longevity of an abdominoplasty. These give a very lasting result. On the front and side view you can still see that her abdomen is still quite flat. On the back view where we liposuctioned the flanks she still has good shape in the flanks and a narrow waist. Liposuction remove the fat cells so that the fat is not prone to reoccur.

This is a 30YO lady from Niceville, Florida who desired some cosmetic improvement of her waist area and her abdomen. She did not like the protuberance of her abdomen. Also she had a lot of bulging in the flank area. This made her clothes appear to bulge in the posterior waist area. The bulging was due to the muscle laxity. She underwent an abdominoplasty with repair of her diastasis recti which is laxity of the abdominal muscles. She also underwent liposuction of the flanks. As you can tell from the lateral view, her abdomen is much more flat than it was. On the posterior view, her flanks are now smooth and not bulging laterally. The scar will be somewhat reddened for around 9 months and then will usually fade and become almost imperceptible.

These are before and two month post op pictures of abdominoplasty with suctioning of the flanks and medial thighs. The operation was designed to flatten her abdomen and remove the excess skin in the lower abdomen. It also elevated and triangulated her genitalia. Her preoperative pictures showed a square shaped flank and buttock with loss of definition of her buttock because of the prominence. The post op pictures at two months is early in a resolution of swelling but you can clearly see a much improved contour with a conversion of a boxy, square-shaped backside to a more "S" shape. This will continue to improve as the swelling abates over the next year.

This is a healthy lady who had a prior augmentation mastopexy with saline implants. At that time, her nipple areolar complexes were large and I was not able to get all the areola pigment out of the mastopexy. There was some areola pigment left on the midline scar associated with the mastopexy. She wished her breasts rounded and the pigment removed from the breast skin. She also was participating in a fitness competition and wanted to minimize the animation seen with submuscular implants. She had children and had some loose skin on her abdomen. All of her muscles were tight. At the time of the redo aug/mastopexy with conversion to a subglandular plane, she had an abdominoplasty. The scar was placed low where it could be hidden within intimate clothing. This resulted in an elevated, flattened, and triangular mons. The suctioning gave some contour to the midline of the abdomen and at the junction between the rectus abdominis muscles and the external obliques. She has gotten a very nice result. The scars are only 2 months out and they will continue to fade over time.

This is a lady that was referred by her OBGYN for consideration for an abdominoplasty in conjunction with a hysterectomy. She has had several pregnancies and wished improvement in her abdomen and her flanks. She had on exam a thick abdominal pannus with a mild separation of the rectus muscles that created the rounded appearance of her abdomen. When she sat down the excess skin that folded out onto her lap was uncomfortable in clothing. The plan was for an abdominoplasty and also liposuctioning of her flanks. In the operating room following the hysterectomy, she had an abdominoplasty with liposuction of about 800cc from her abdomen. She had 700cc of fat removed from her flanks. These are pre and post op photographs at 2 months after her procedure. She has gotten a nice, flattened contour of her abdomen with suctioned outlines of the rectus muscles. Her flanks are now more concave which gives more prominent contour to her buttock shape. This converts her backside to an “S” contour. This is a much more feminine shape and gives a more defined waist. This makes her clothing more comfortable and more attractive.

She underwent an abdominoplasty with repair of the stretched out abdominal muscles and liposuction. The redundant skin was removed within a low bikini line scar such that it could be hidden. The low placement also elevates and triangulates the mons which is a more feminine, youthful contour. Seen here are before and after that are 2 months following the procedure.

This is a young female who following pregnancies has developed some fullness in her trunk, flanks, lower abdomen, mons, and genitalia. In addition, she has lost a good bit of volume in the breasts and they are drooping. She underwent a series of two operations. First, she underwent an augmentation/mastopexy with 485cc silicone gel implants. She has a very nice breast contour with good upper pole fill. She is a D/DD cup now. Following recovery from the breast surgery, she underwent an abdominoplasty with suctioning of her flanks. She has a “BB” contour of her buttock and flanks. Suctioning created the feminine “S” contour of her buttocks. She got a very nice result without fat grafts in the bottom. At the same time she underwent the abdominoplasty, I repaired her stretched out abdominal muscles and did some suctioning to recreate some of the abdominal wall contour. This can be especially seen in some of the oblique photographs of her post op pictures. She has gotten spectacular result from her surgery. She is extremely pleased with her results.
