Procedures Performed

  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

This 40-year-old woman wanted to get rid of the extra skin around her stomach. She knew that diet and exercise wouldn't be enough and began researching plastic surgeons in Columbia. She saw Dr. Chang's website and was impressed with his before-and-after photo gallery. She requested a consultation and came in for a meeting.

That day, she explained that the extra skin on her abdomen wouldn't budge. She knew that surgery was necessary and asked whether liposuction or a tummy tuck would be best. Dr. Chang explained that sometimes liposuction can be combined with a tummy tuck to get the most flattering results. He recommended a high lateral tension abdominoplasty, since this technique would both flatten her stomach and give her lower body a lift. Eager to get started, she scheduled an appointment to have a tummy tuck in the Baltimore area.

Dr. Chang made an incision from hip bone to hip bone across her lower abdomen. He then removed the excess skin and fat and tightened her abdominal wall. The result is a much more toned appearance. She loves her new body and couldn’t be happier with the result.
