Abdominoplasty (Individual Result May Vary)
This is a 55-year-old lady who desires some cosmetic improvement of her abdomen. She had a lot of loose skin and excessive fat of the abdomen. She underwent an abdominoplasty. Also, I elevated and defatted the loose mons pubis that she has. Now, she has a much more youthful figure and has very tight skin and muscles of the abdomen. The scar will be hidden with most swimsuits. The redness from the scar will usually fade in around nine months to a year. Then it leaves a small white line.
This is a healthy woman who had prior liposuction on her abdomen. This liposuction helped but did not address the stretched out abdominal musculature or the loose skin. The excess weight and skin of the lower abdomen had pushed her female genitalia in a too low position. In addition, she had prominent fat collections in her flanks and flattening of her buttock contour. She was carried to the operating room. She was treated preoperatively with Lovenox to minimize the chance of blood clots and pulmonary embolus. She underwent liposuction of her abdomen and flanks with fat injection into the buttocks and an abdominoplasty. The abdominoplasty tightened the abdominal muscles and recreated the contours of a more youthful abdomen. The surgery elevated her mons pubis and created a more uplifted and triangular shaped youthful appearance. The buttock contour is more rounded with more projection situated by the more youthful and feminine concavity of the flanks. Her profile when sitting eliminated the fat rolls that piled up across her waist.
She looks and feels better. Her clothes fit better and she is now able to wear more flattering clothing.
This patient wishes some improvement in her abdominal contour, specifically her abdomen and her flanks. She did not like the roll of skin which extended across her lap when she sat and wanted more contouring of her bottom. She had liposuction of her flanks and an abdominoplasty. The liposuction of her flanks, in addition to creating a more concave contour in the flank, actually removed some of the fat rolls up on her back and gave more contour projection to her buttocks. This result was obtained without fat grafting to the buttocks in her and in certain patients. Her abdomen had suctioning of the deep subcutaneous fat and repair of the loose abdominal wall. This nicely flattened her abdominal contour. Suctioning restored some of the more youthful contours in the midline. The low incision elevates and triangulates the mons, which give a more youthful appearance. She has lost inches in her waist. She has a more feminine contour. The scar is low and can be hidden by intimate apparel.
This is a 43-year-old lady who had a marked indented scar from an old operation. She also had hanging skin, a protuberant abdomen, and a hernia. She underwent an abdominoplasty and repair of the abdomen. Her abdomen now is much flatter and tighter. We eliminated the old scar that she had. Now that we tightened the skin and the muscles of her abdomen, she can wear clothes that are much more attractive and fitted to her. Whenever patients have a hernia, the insurance will cover repair of the hernia and this helps offset some of the cost of the abdominoplasty.
This lady has had four children which have left her with rounded, rather featureless torso. In addition, she has an indented C-section scar and a droopy mons. She has large collections in her flank and some early fat and skin rolls in the lower portion of her back. She underwent an abdominoplasty with suctioning of the abdomen and the flanks. The abdominoplasty elevated and flattened her mons. It removed the excess skin roll both in the sitting and upright positions. It has given her a waist and a much more feminine, rounded buttock. The suctioning greatly improved the roll in the lower back. She is extremely pleased with the results. She thinks her torso looks more like it did prior to pregnancies. She anticipates, in the future, a breast lift with implants.

She was unhappy with the persistent fullness in the lower part of her abdomen, the depressed scar, the shape of the scar, and the height of the scar that made it very difficult to hide.

It also elevated and triangulated the mons pubis to give this part of her torso a more feminine character. She also had some suctioning of her flanks. This accentuated her buttock contour and converted it to a more pleasing shaped contour.
