Case Number: 992
This 48-year-old female came to visit us in our Albany, New York, office to discuss her abdomen. She had 3 previous pregnancies and developed changes in her abdomen that she was unable to improve with diet and exercise. She was most bothered by the stretched skin that seemed to hang, and he wished to find out her options for bringing her body back.
As you can see in the photographs, she has a combination of loss of skin tone and adiposity, or fat. This is quite common after multiple pregnancies, and it can be heralded by the stretch marks as seen on this patient’s lower abdomen. There is no amount of dieting or exercise that can fully restore such a case.
Tummy tuck surgery at our Albany practice is an excellent method for removing and tightening the excess skin that can develop after weight changes or pregnancies. We also perform liposuction in Albany to remove fat, and we frequently combine both procedures to give us our best results. This is what we did in this nice woman’s case. Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore performed liposuction on her sides and abdomen to bring back her curves. He also did some suctioning on her back area to further contour her waistline. He then performed a tummy tuck with tightening of her abdominal muscles. This allowed creation of a flat foundation that he could then tighten the excess skin over. As you can see on her profile picture, this created a significant improvement in her contour.
After 2 weeks, this woman was back at work and feeling much better about herself. While there is some recovery time from a tummy tuck, it is certainly manageable and worth the results.
