This 44-year old patient from Corona, California (Riverside County) was interested in tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) to remove the excess skin around her abdomen area, and also tighten her abdominal wall muscles after 4 pregnancies.
The patient researched for an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to perform her tummy tuck surgery and found Dr. Pousti on the Internet.
During her consultation with Dr. Pousti in his Murrieta office, the patient was able to speak with previous patients who also underwent tummy tuck surgery. The risks and benefits of an extended tummy tuck (tummy tuck with back lipectomy) was discussed, the patient decided to proceed with surgery.
Dr. Pousti marked the patient the night before surgery and details of her surgery were then discussed again.
Markings are re-measured and re-marked to assure as much symmetry as possible.
She is now 6-weeks post-op surgery and is extremely happy with her results.
