AFTER (3 mo)


AFTER (3 mo)

This fairly petite (5'0", 115 pound) 36 year-old woman had delivered 4 children by C-section, and predictably was left with very lax skin and musculature, and indeed had developed an umbilical hernia as well. She had been sent over by her general surgeon to be assessed for suitability for undergoing an abdominoplasty in conjunction with her umbilical herniorrhaphy. I advised her that even though she was quite thin and had relatively minimal lower abdominal tissue redundancy, her upper abdominal laxity would allow for aggressive redraping, and that her belly button could be much improved during the course of a hernia repair with cosmetic tacking down/recontouring, to make it more of an "inny".

This surgery was coordinated with the general surgeon, and after I assisted with the umbilical hernia repair, a formal tummy tuck commonly done in Chicago was performed. The patient tolerated both procedures quite well as an overnight stay procedure, and had dramatic improvements in the appearance of both her belly button as well as abdominal wall contour in general (these photos are from approximately 9 months later).
