This 53 year-old patient from San Diego, California was interested in removal of excess skin of lower abdomen and umbilical (belly button) hernia repair. She is a previous patient of Dr. Pousti and felt comfortable having him preform her surgery. lipectomy

After loosing weight she expressed that she was unhappy with the excess skin that hung over her c-section scar and wanted to have it removed along with umbilical hernia repair.  During her examination Dr. Pousti said that she was an excellent candidate for both procedures and discussed risks and complications in great detail.

Patient Testimonial:

I’ve always struggled with the fat above my C-section incision. Losing weight didn’t help. Didn’t want a Tummy Tuck but didn’t think there was any other alternative. Dr. Pousti informed he could remove the fat & skin about my incision. I’m one week out and although the drains are uncomfortable, I’ve had relatively zero pain from the procedure.
