This 64-year-old woman was interested in undergoing abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, in Baltimore after accomplishing a dramatic weight loss. The weight loss had left her with an excess of loose skin and tissue that she could not reduce through diet and exercise. With Dr. Eric Chang's guidance, the patient chose to undergo a full abdominoplasty without muscle plication. Her abdominoplasty was enhanced by liposuction of the upper abdomen and flanks.
Dr. Chang worked closely with this patient throughout each stage of the surgical process, carefully guiding her through each decision. He spoke with the patient at length about her medical history and lifestyle, doing his best to develop a surgical plan that was safe for her and natural-looking results that she could enjoy for many years.
In the after photos, taken at 1 year post-surgery, the patient's previously protruding abdomen is greatly reduced. Her smoother silhouette harmonizes with the rest of her body. Although a scar is present, it is quite faint and easily concealed beneath everyday clothing.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
