Dr. DeLuca Tummy Tuck Before and After > Tummy Tuck + Muscle Plication

This set of abdominoplasty before and after photos features a 31 year old healthy, white female and mother of 1 via natural childbirth. She is 5 feet 7 inches tall, 159 pounds and worked to lose 10 pounds prior to surgery. She gained approximately 100 pounds with her pregnancy and this left her with weakness to her abdominal musculature and laxity both above and below the umbilicus (belly button). In order to tighten her up, she underwent a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with plication of the rectus fascia and a small amount of liposuction to the hips. Photos taken 2 months after surgery show a beautifully flat and sculpted abdomen with virtually zero laxity to the skin. The scar has been kept low for underwear and bathing suit purposes and will continue to fade overtime. She is already back to full activity and exercises and remains overjoyed with both her decision to 'tighten her tummy' and the result I was able to achieve.
