This 29-year-old, 5-foot-11 woman was unhappy with the excess skin that remained in her midsection following LAP-BAND® surgery for weight loss. After losing about 70 pounds, she sought an experienced Orange County tummy tuck surgeon.
This patient felt the excess tissue and skin around her midsection detracted from the hard work she had put in losing the weight. She wanted her outward appearance to reflect her achievement, and she enlisted the help of Dr. Andrew Smith.
To begin her procedure, Dr. Smith made an incision across the pubic bone and removed excess skin and tissue. After he was finished with the abdominoplasty, he performed liposuction on the flanks and waist area.
The end result was a complete body rejuvenation. The contouring helped this woman regain confidence in her body and feel free to show off her hard-earned physique.
