|Before||After Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)|
This 35-year-old woman had extensive stretch marks and excess skin on her abdomen after having children. Her abdominal muscles had become lax, creating the appearance of a sagging and heavy abdomen that she couldn't get rid of through diet and exercise. Tired of feeling frustrated and wanting to feel more confident in her swimsuit and other clothing, she began considering plastic surgery and started looking at several plastic surgeons in Chicago. She contacted Dr. Rios for a consultation.
When she came in for her appointment, she expressed her concerns and asked Dr. Rios what he thought was the best option. He reassured her that many mothers come to see him with similar concerns and are very satisfied with their results. For these women, he typically recommends a tummy tuck with muscle plication in cases where the abdominal muscles become lax. For this patient, the tummy tuck would remove some of the excess skin, effectively ridding her of some of her stretch marks while creating a firmer-looking abdomen with the muscle plication.
After her Joliet tummy tuck was completed, she was given time to recover before returning to have her "after" photos taken. As the photos show, her stomach has become completely flat, making her abdomen look much thinner than before. She was very happy with her new figure and was eager to show it off, as shown by her new tan lines.
