After having children, this patient came to consult with Dr. Leveque about options to remove excess loose skin on her abdomen. Dr. Leveque performed a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty). A tummy tuck can not only help with removal of excess skin, but also tightens the abdominal muscles stretched during pregnancy and also can help remove stretch marks common after pregnancy. The scar from a tummy tuck can take up to 1+ years to heal and fade – this patient is only 10 weeks post-op therefore her scar is in the early stages of healing. Both the patient and Dr. Leveque are very pleased with the final result after surgery.
