This Virginia Beach woman came to me following three pregnancies. Her main concern was the bulging of her abdomen, loose skin and deflated breast. Upon exam, it was found that she had unfortunately developed abdominal hernias with her childbirths and this was causing much of the bulging look that bothered her. She decided to use the opportunity of muscle tightening with abdominoplasty to address her hernias as well. Usually the large amount of skin removed during an abdominoplasty is the most dramatic change. However, in her case, repairing the weak fascia and tightening the muscle proved to be most gratifying to her. Still, a considerable amount of skin was removed at the same time creating an even flatter look. We managed to get her scar quite symmetric. Because this patient did not have a lot of excess skin, there is a small vertical umbilical scar that is seen halfway between the umbilicus and the lower horizontal scar. Usually, this scar can be placed lower or eliminated completely in patients with more skin to remove. The longer horizontal scar seen above her photo panties is exactly where she chose it for best concealment with her own clothes. This “makeover” was complimented with a breast augmentation at the same time to give this mother a result that she was extremely pleased with.

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.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please call our office at 757-456-5193 and we will let you know when to come to the door. We ask that you do not bring anyone with you.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. Your temperature will be taken, and a series of questions asked prior to entering the building. You will be given hand sanitizer.
