Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This woman, in her mid-40s, has had 2 children, with 2 C-section deliveries. She came to see Dr. Lepore to discuss options for restoring the appearance of her abdominal area, as well as reducing some areas of excess fat.
She had significant stretching in her lower abdomen, which produced a sagging appearance. To repair the muscle damage in her abdomen, remove excess skin and tissue, and improve the contour, she underwent what is known as an extended abdominoplasty. In this type of Tummy Tuck, the incision extends across the lower abdomen. In this case, approximately 920 grams of skin and tissue were removed.
To remove excess fat in the areas that concerned our patient, Dr. Lepore performed Liposuction on her abdomen and flanks.
The difference is considerable. Our patient is seen 8 weeks post-surgery, in her After photos. She is very pleased with her outcome, and her restored contours.
