Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck and Liposuction of the sides.
This lady was a fitness trainer. The bulge of her abdomen was due to loose muscles of the abdomen. Muscle laxity occurs typically after childbirth. This muscle laxity will not usually get corrected with exercise alone. Plastic surgery is required.
This lady had a tummy tuck procedure to fix the loose muscles of her abdominal wall. This repair of the muscles during a tummy tuck can last a lifetime.
I call this operation the modern abdominoplasty because it has a faster recovery time, offers a better shape and preserves the belly button.
As a minor procedure at the same plastic surgery operation she had liposuction of the abdomen and the sides.
I will never forget that when I went to check on this patient the evening of her surgery at the hotel that she was recovering at, I found her in the hotel lounge enjoying happy hour! This is how effective and fast the recovery can be even after a major abdominal operation.
