This 40’ish year old female did not like the bulge present in her belly and wanted a more contoured waist and hip area. A full tummy tuck was not necessary and she thought she could get by with just liposuction. However, upon examination, since she had one child and had excess loose skin in her lower abdomen, we discussed the problem of the excess skin hanging if just liposuction was performed.
She subsequently decided to undergo a mini tummy tuck with plication of her abdominal muscles in the lower abdominal area. We also did liposuction of her upper abdomen, waist and hips for improving the shape and contour of her feminine body.
Note the reduction in size of the rose on her right hip due to the resection of the skin in this area. She is very pleased by her decision.
