This 49 year-old patient came to Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery due to an exercise-resistant bulge she was left with after two C-sections. Regardless of how much she exercised she couldn’t lose the mommy pooch or tone her legs any further. After meeting with our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon they formulated a surgical plan including a mini tummy tuck with liposuction of the inner and outer thighs. This was the perfect combination of procedures for her body type.
A mini tummy tuck addressed the resistant bulge the patient had despite diligent exercise by resecting the extra skin and tissue of her lower abdomen. Patients tend to recover more quickly from a mini tummy tuck than a standard abdominoplasty. This patient returned to work 6 days after her surgery. She is extremely impressed with her results and how quickly she recovered.
