Vertical Scar Tummy Tuck
In her clothes this well put together and sophisticated patient (35 y/o, 5’2”, 95lbs) had a figure for which most women would die for! A mere Size 0!! However, after gaining 50lbs during each of her two pregnancies she no longer felt comfortable with the sagging, stretched, lax skin of her belly. Plus, she had this look of permanent bloating, due to the badly stretched stomach muscles which contributed to a forward bowing of her belly…particularly annoying. While she was able to return to her pre pregnancy size zero, her overstretched skin and lack of abdominal muscle tone led her to consider if an abdominoplasty would be right for her.
This patient had originally planned to see multiple plastic surgeons for consultations, however after reading many positive online reviews, she was leaning toward Dr Mahony – even prior to her appointment. But the consultation was what clinched it! What impressed her most about Dr. Mahony was her honesty. Dr Mahony was very upfront about the tradeoffs that she would need to accept in order to achieve her goals. She explained at length why the addition of a vertical scar was necessary in her case. This gal felt comfortable knowing exactly what to expect post operatively.
A full abdominoplasty with a small amount of liposuction (425cc) to the abdomen completely changed up the look of her midsection, restoring the svelte tight belly she remembered! She could not be happier. It’s a huge compliment to us that she will be returning this fall to complete her Mommy Makeover with a Breast Reduction!
