This patient is a 54 year old woman who saw Dr. Fata for help with a thickening waistline, which had become worse during and after menopause. Dr. Fata recommended and performed a full Tummy Tuck and liposuction of her hip rolls, which he said would be needed to treat her entire waist. She is shown before and 6 months after these procedures. Dr. Fata reduced her waistline from 40 to 34 inches. Although individual improvement will vary, it shows that a Tummy Tuck can be a successful procedure for women over the age of 50.

This patient presented after having multiple children and a large weight gain but was unable to shed the "baby weight". She had a Full Tummy Tuck and Ultrasonic Liposuction of her hips and inner and outer thighs. She then went on to lose 50 pounds. Results are shown before and one year after surgery.
This patient had a widespread abdominal bulge best seen on the side view of her "before" photo. She had a Mini Tummy Tuck which restored her flat, athletic tummy. Photos were taken before and one year after her procedure.
This patient had a large amount of loose, handing skin and fat with stretch marks after having children. She underwent a full or standard Tummy Tuck with a much improved abdominal shape seen one year after surgery.
This is a 29 year old woman who has had four children and is 20 pounds heavier than she was before her first pregnancy. She was unable to lose the weight and requested a Tummy Tuck. Dr. Fata recommented a Full Tummy Tuck but explained that the best result could only be achieved if she lost weight after surgery. She went on to lose the extra weight after her surgery and is shown before and 3 years after her Tummy Tuck. Note the dramatic improvement in her stretch marks.
This is a 45 year old woman who has had four children and has worked to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight. Despite her efforts, she still has a "pooch" in the lower part of her tummy because of muscle weakness and some remaining fat. She is shown before and one year after a "Mini Tummy Tuck".
This patient is a 40 year-old who had one child in her early twenties and requested the best procedure to help restore her waistline. She had some excess abdominal skin but her biggest problems were a centralized collection of excess fat and weakness of her core muscles. I recommended an extended mini-tummy tuck, in which a small amount of skin would be removed to leave a shorter scar, but the fat removal and muscle tightening would be that of a full tummy tuck. She is shown before and one year after surgery. Her waistline measurement changed from 38 inches to 31 inches.
