Abdominoplasty Case Study 78
A tummy tuck strengthens the abdominal wall, allows removal of skin excess and by stretching the remaining skin the skin wrinkling and stretch marks are often improved. This lady is seen 6 months following an abdominoplasty. Mr Ross does not use any drains and patients are mobilised immediately following surgery allowing them to go home within 24 hours following surgery. This lady has significant problems with abdominal wall laxity and bulge / hernia. In severe cases, such as this, a lot of abdominal wall is required and the swelling above the scar and the lower abdomen takes 6-12 months to settle. The scars will continue to fade in the coming months and there will still be a reduction in swelling. Even so this lady demonstrates an excellent abdominal rejuvenation result at 6 months.
When considering abdominal rejuvenation surgery it is important to consider all the various options which may include abdominoplasty, mini abdominoplasty, fleur de lis abdominoplasty, liposuction, bodylifting or as part of a mommy makeover package.
