This 37-year-old woman was unhappy with the appearance of her protruding abdomen after giving birth to 2 children via Caesarean section. Although she was in generally good shape, she was bothered by the excess skin and fat around her midsection, which seemed out of proportion with the rest of her body. She approached Dr. Eric Chang to learn about having a tummy tuck at his practice near Baltimore.
During her first consultation with Dr. Chang, he took the time to get to know her as an individual, asking questions about her lifestyle and her aesthetic goals. This information helped Dr. Chang design a surgical approach that targeted her individual areas of concern while ensuring that her final result was exactly what she wanted.
In her after photos, taken 6 months after her procedure at our plastic surgery practice in Columbia, you'll notice the marked improvement to her abdominal contour. Her flatter abdomen harmonizes her entire body, making her silhouette slimmer, sleeker, and more feminine. Although tummy tuck surgery does result in a scar, its low placement ensures that it's concealed beneath clothing. In some cases, Dr. Chang can adjust the incision placement based on the patient's preferences. Good skincare habits, including adequate sun protection, further help to fade the scar.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
