This patient is 34 years old, 5’4″ tall with three children. Her lower belly has a large bulge that is somewhat from fat, but mostly from a muscle separation. She had a significant difference between the height of her hips and I was able to tighten the skin slightly more on the left side to make the difference less obvious. Tightening the muscle in the lower belly made her very flat and tightened her waist. The scar now falls well within any bathing suit she wears and she is considering a breast lift.

What This Patient Had To Say About Her Surgery

“This surgery changed my life. I once again feel comfortable in jeans- something I never thought was possible. The recovery was hard for the first three days and at that point I was able to get around OK. I started driving again about five days after the surgery. When I was at Dr. Newman’s office I got to speak with someone who had the surgery only a week before, and someone else who had it about a month before. Getting their perspectives was very helpful for me. Dr. Newman obviously does a lot of tummy tucks and his patients seem to love him! The information he gave me regarding my recovery was very straight forward and honest and everything went exactly as he told me it would. I’m now a member of the Dr. Newman fan club!”

Tummy Tuck - Case #2425

This patient is a 36 year old woman 5’7″ tall with three children. As can be seen in her ‘before’ photos she has stretch marks on her abdomen that extend far above her belly button. She has skin excess especially in the center and a wide separation of the abdominal muscles. Looking at the appearance of her pubic hair you can see how her whole pubic area has ‘dropped’- something that many women complain of. The appearance of the pubic area, as seen in the after photos, is much more desirable. Signifiant tightening of the abdominal muscles and aggressive liposuction of her sides gives a result that makes her look much thinner. Her breast surgery adds to this change as well as her breast lift was performed in a way that also increases the appearance of width of her chest- this makes her waist and hips look narrower. This is a perfect example of a case where paying attention to body proportions gave a much better result than if all we dealt with was the abdomen.

“This surgery changed so many things for me. My dress size has gone from a size 14 to a size 6 and I’m wearing a bikini for the first time since high school. I initially came to Dr. Newman just for breast surgery and a tummy tuck was the furthest thing from my mind. There was a patient in the office when I was there who had exactly the same surgery I needed for my breasts and I had a chance to talk to her. She had a tummy-tuck as well and, after seeing her result, I asked Dr. Newman about it. She was so happy and, when I was shown her pre-op pictures I felt like I was looking in the mirror! Not only did I end up with a great body, but I now have a new friend!”

Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation/Breast Lift

This patient is the same as in the last photo set. These photos demonstrate the way I can customize the position of the scar so it is covered by the bathing suit style the patient likes to wear. This patient likes to wear a bathing suit bottom with a ‘French Leg’ style that comes high on her thigh. Typically my patients will bring in a bathing suit bottom on the morning of surgery and the outlines of the style are marked. The surgery is then designed so the resulting scar is covered.

Mini-Abdominoplasty (Mini Tummy-Tuck) with Breast Augmentation

This patient is 45 years old, 5’6″ tall, 135 lbs. She had three C-sections and has a typical skin excess that folds over her C-section scar. There is a moderate separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), moreso in the lower part of her abdomen. She was not concerned with having a belly that was as tight as possible- she was more concerned with reducing the lower abdominal bulge that is most visible in the photos from the side, and the skin fold in the middle that she feels is visible in clothing.

Most importantly this is a patient who needed her proportions ‘adjusted’. As is seen in the before photo from the front, her hips appear very wide. Her real issue is that her chest is somewhat narrow compared to her hips. By also performing breast augmentation in a way that not only makes her larger and more lifted but also wider, her body is in better balance. Looking at the ‘after’ picture from the front, her hips appear smaller…even though I did nothing to her hips! This is all a result of performing breast augmentation using this technique.
