This Chesapeake mom in her early thirties came for a consultation to discuss her abdomen. After a thorough discussion she decided to have a tummy tuck. She was not a good candidate for liposuction because the fatty accumulation is not under the skin like some patients, but rather inside her abdomen which is not able to be suctioned. The only way to get rid of fat inside the abdomen and around the intestines is weight loss. I explained that with weight loss, she would have more excess skin to remove with the tummy tuck and thus would get a more noticeable result. She decided to proceed with the abdominoplasty at her current weight and is still pleased with the improvement.
