Tummy tuck with other procedures after bariatric surgery *
The patient below had a combination of body contouring procedures. She had a full abdominoplasty with repair of her abdominal muscles (for divarication of the rectus muscles). She also had a breast uplift and liposuction to contour her waist and back. Results are shown at six months. The patient had lost significant weight following weight loss (bariatric) surgery.
breast lift and tummy tuck *
The before and after photos below are those of a patient who had a breast lift (mastopexy) and a tummy tuck after massive weight loss. She did not wish to have breast implants to restore volume. Note the extent of the scar following the tummy tuck procedure – it extends around the side to avoid having to put a vertical scar in the midline. Also, note that a tummy tuck cannot remove stretch marks above the belly button.
tummy tuck with repair of a hernia after massive weight loss *
The patient below is in her early 60s. She had surgery (bariatric weight loss surgery) 8 years previously to help her lose weight (midline scar on her abdomen). She lost seven stone in weight but was subsequently left with a huge hernia and abdominal apron. She had excision of her abdominal apron using a tummy tuck technique (which weighed 3.6kg) and repair of her hernia using a mesh. She also had liposuction and a pubic lift. Results are shown at six months. Note the midline vertical scar is a pre-existing scar from her previous surgery.Information on Post Weight Loss
