After deciding her family was complete, this professional woman in her early thirties met with me in consultation to address her excess abdominal skin. She was also bothered by the hanging skin on her sides. Following a thorough exam and discussion, we agreed that an extended abdominoplasty would be her best option to eliminate the bulges on her sides at the same time as her tummy tuck. With careful planning and measurements prior to surgery, the resulting scars could easily be hidden beneath her bathing suit. I encourage patients to bring their bathing suit or undergarment with them to pre-surgical marking to assist in planning the scar location. This particular patient wanted her scar to sweep upward while others may choose a straighter line. Following surgery, she was extremely excited about the removal of her bulges and felt the extra scar on her side was well worth the trade-off.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
