Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery
In this Orange County tummy tuck case study, the patient was a 57-year-old female who wanted a dramatic change. Her “before” photos show that her stomach had grown to extend well below her waist, even as far as covering her groin area. Profile shots show that fat deposits were not limited to the abdominal area, but had also extended to her hips and “love handles.”
During the procedure, her Orange County plastic surgeon at CosmetiCare removed the excess skin and fat to reduce volume. Her abdominal muscles were also retightened. After healing, the skin will be much tighter and look more youthful, especially since some of the areas removed through the procedure were scarred by stretch marks. The patient’s navel is also smaller and less noticeable following the surgery, and the natural curves of hips and waist are more clearly visible again. Excess fat at the upper hip and love handle area has also been removed.
Since the surgery, this patient has felt much better about her body, and feels clothes look more flattering on her than before. She also feels more confident and outgoing.
