Tummy Tuck with Pubic Lift and Hernia Repair.
This patient, after having multiple children and undergoing weight fluctuations, was dealing with excess skin in her abdomen and mons pubis, along with a hernia. Her physical discomfort was further exacerbated by back and neck pain, caused by the strain from the extra skin weight and muscle separation. In addition to performing a Tummy Tuck with Pubic Lift, Dr. Cat’s general surgeon colleague also successfully repaired the hernia. Dr. Cat repaired about 5 centimeters of muscle separation, and she removed a foot of skin, weighing 6 pounds and 5 ounces. The combined procedures resulted in a tight, flat abdomen, a natural-looking belly button, and a thin, low, barely visible incision. She is 3 months post-op and she is no longer burdened by the physical discomforts that once plagued her. This patient now enjoys a renewed sense of ease and confidence in her body, grateful for the comprehensive and skillful care she received.
