This woman in her mid-thirties traveled from out of state to meet with me concerning her post-pregnancy contour. She was not happy with the large amount of loose skin and stretch marks on her stomach. She was also concerned about the deflated look of her breasts. After a thorough discussion and exam, we decided her best result would be to have both a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation with a lift to help the sagging of her breast. She wanted to remove a large amount of abdominal skin and tighten her muscle. Often, an abdominoplasty cannot completely remove all of the stretched skin but can remove a significant amount and the stretch marks that remain are usually less noticeable. Because safety is a top priority, I  recommended that she have the breast augmentation with lift one week prior to the abdominoplasty. You can see remnants of our scar management program following abdominoplasty. We have our patients put some light tape over the scar for several months. Here we see her 4 months after surgery and the tape that she had decided to use an extra month had just been removed for the photos leaving some elastic along the fine scars. Notice her muscle is greatly tightened although it is completely functional and has every bit as much strength as previously. She no longer has to intentionally pull her stomach in, it remains flat even when relaxed. She is very pleased that her stretch marks are much less noticeable now.

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.
