This surgery can be described as a Tummy Tuck, but more specifically, a procedure known as a Panniculectomy was performed.
The patient was experiencing a numbering of problems associated with her weight, including a significant, troublesome amount of excess skin, tissue, and fat, overhanging her lower abdomen. During surgery, this so-called pannus was removed. The difference is immediately apparent. The patient noted a great improvement in her physical comfort and appearance. She will return in the future, for further refinement, as she continues to address her weight and body appearance.

This woman was disturbed by some of the changes she's noticed in her abdominal area, since pregnancy. She hoped that some of the appearance of loose skin could be reversed. In addition, she wished to have some extra areas of fat removed.
After discussions with Dr. Li, she elected to have a standard abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), and Liposuction of the abdomen and flanks.
During surgery, excess tissue was removed, and the abdominal muscles tightened. Liposuction removed approximately 450cc of excess fat.
Our patient is seen in the After photos, about 6 weeks following her procedure.
