This 36-year old patient from Murrieta, California was interested in a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for several years. She was unable to loose the excess skin and adipose tissue (fat) around the abdominal area. She had heard of Dr. Pousti and read his testimonials as well as the potential risks and complications associated with abdominoplasty surgery.
After becoming healthier from dieting and exercising, she decided to proceed with surgery. Dr. Pousti suggested an extended tummy tuck to remove extra skin and fat around the back (back lipectomy), which requires the scar to extended around the back, for a more hourglass waist.
The patient is now 18-months post-op surgery and is extremely happy with her results.
