This patient underwent a tummy tuck with Dr. Leveque. She came to consult with Dr. Leveque after having major weight loss. She was a perfect candidate for a tummy tuck due to the excess loose skin on her abdomen as well as a separation in her abdominal muscles. During a tummy tuck, these loose muscles are tightened using a procedure called "muscle plication". The loose excess skin is removed and the patient's belly button is placed in a new opening after skin removal. The result is a tighter and slimmer abdomen. This procedure can often remove most stretch marks present prior to surgery. The patient was very happy with her outcome after surgery.
