Sugar Land Plastic Surgeon serving Houston, Katy and Nearby Areas of Texas
This woman had prior abdominal surgery, with severe skin excess and muscle weakness. Her bellybutton was completely covered with loose skin. Postop photos are at 3 months, so her shape will continue to improve as the swelling gradually resolves.
It is not uncommon for women to be disappointed with the results from a tummy tuck. Whether it is shape, contour irregularities, scar placement or unsightly bulges, most problems can be corrected if addressed properly.
This woman had an abdominoplasty with liposuction of the surrounding areas several years ago in another city. She came to me for improvement of several areas: 1) lumpy, uneven contour over the abdomen and flanks, 2) a large depression on the right hip, 3) a bulge above her navel, 4) a vertical gap in the upper abdomen, 5) uneven waist contour.
These problems were all addressed with revision of the entire procedure. The muscle was cinched together, which had not been done in the prior surgery; precise liposuction was done to even out all of the irregular areas; the right hip depression was masked by liposuction around it; the bulge above her navel resolved after the muscle was tightened.
Her reason for having the abdominoplasty originally was to feel confident in a two-piece bathing suit, but she was unable to because of these issues. Her abdomen now has an ideal contour for her body.
