This 44 year old woman was interested in having a tummy tuck in Indianapolis and came to Wagner and Associates Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Consultants of Indiana in search of guidance about her options. As you can see especially from the side views, she had a significant amount of excess skin and fat on the lower abdomen.
During her consultation with Dr. Wagner, he carefully reviewed her existing anatomy and discussed her cosmetic goals. Dr. Wagner told her that she was an excellent candidate for a mini tummy tuck because she carried most of her excess abdominal fat in her lower abdomen. The mini version of the abdominoplasty procedure requires a smaller incision and shorter recovery time, making it very appealing to a variety of cosmetic surgery patients, including moms who want to be able to get back to their families quickly.
Dr. Wagner performed tummy tuck surgery along with liposuction on her upper abdomen and flanks. The tummy tuck involved removing excess skin and fat from her lower abdomen. Liposuction is a valuable addition to the abdominoplasty procedure for many Indianapolis plastic surgery patients because it helps to create a more flattering contour than can be achieved through a tummy tuck alone.
In the photos after her surgery, the abdominal scar is still fairly visible but should continue to fade and lighten for up to a year after the procedure. She is enjoying her new figure and has dropped at least one pant size.
