  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Many people struggle with stomach pooches that give them a puffy appearance around the middle. Such was the case for this 37-year-old woman who was considering a tummy tuck from Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Diet and exercise were not enough to correct the problem, and she knew plastic surgery was what she needed.

She made an appointment with Dr. Chang and came in for her initial consultation. Dr. Chan explained that abdominoplasty is a customizable procedure that can be tailored to each patient's body type for the best results. For her, Dr. Chang recommended a lateral tension abdominoplasty. This approach is used to narrow the waistline while tightening the thighs and buttocks. Unlike traditional tummy tuck surgery, the lateral tension technique creates a lifting effect that is similar to a body lift, which is usually performed after a dramatic weight loss. She was happy with Dr. Chang's assessment and made her appointment in Columbia for plastic surgery.

Dr. Chang made an incision in her lower abdomen that extended around the sides. This allowed him to shape the entire area more precisely and gave him greater control over the degree of lift. Her stomach now looks much firmer, and her body appears sleeker. She loves her new look and is happy she chose Dr. Chang.
