Abdominoplasty After Weight Loss*

Procedure Details

This is a woman in her 50's who had undergone bariatric surgery. She lost 100 lbs. She was left with loose hanging skin. She underwent abdominoplasty. At surgery, her muscles were tightened about 11 cm, and about 13 pounds of tissue was removed. She also had a little suctioned from her inner thighs. While the skin is still loose, you can see the fullness is gone. Postop, while still early, she has lost 14 lb and 7.5 inches around her love handles. She is very happy!
