This woman was troubled by excess skin and fat on her abdominal area and her mid-back, which she felt made her look unnecessarily heavy. When she met with me for a consultation, she explained that she wanted to smooth out the curves of her mid and lower back and flatten out her tummy. Together, we talked over her options to create a healthier, more toned-looking mid-section. As a plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, I see many patients who want more attractive figures, but maintaining realistic goals is important. For me, it is very important to make sure that my patients are working to maintain a healthy lifestyle both before and after surgery, especially if they are considering body contouring procedures like abdominoplasty and liposuction.
For this woman’s body contouring procedure, I performed abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) combined with liposuction to address the anterior and posterior flanks. During the abdominoplasty, I tightened loose abdominal muscles, then tightened and removed excess fat and skin to create a flatter, slimmer-looking waist. Liposuction can help refine tummy tuck results and even out other areas by removing localized fat deposits that will not disappear with diet and exercise. Together, these procedures result in a more complete makeover.
This woman’s before-and-after photos clearly illustrate the significant improvements that her procedures made to her abdominal area. She no longer has a belly “pooch,” her mid and lower back look slimmer and more attractive, and her abdominal muscles look flatter and much more defined. She is thrilled with the appearance of her body, particularly the way her liposuction procedure enhanced her tummy tuck results by helping her look slimmer and more fit. This woman loves the shape of her new body and the natural, more feminine-looking curves of her waist and hips.
