Abdominoplasty with Pubic Lift and Hernia Repair.
This patient experienced significant changes in her body post-pregnancy, including excess skin on her abdomen and a loosened abdominal wall. To address these concerns and regain her pre-pregnancy shape, she underwent a Tummy Tuck and Pubic Lift. Before her surgery, the patient, who is 5′ 9″, weighed 205 pounds, and had a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30.9. Dr. Cat removed 12 inches of excess skin and repaired about 5 centimeters of muscle separation. The patient was also experiencing extreme discomfort due to multiple umbilical hernias, which were effectively repaired by a trusted general surgeon colleague of Dr. Cat’s. This comprehensive procedure helped her achieve a tighter, smoother abdomen and a lifted pubic area, greatly enhancing her overall body contour and restoring her confidence. This patient mentioned she no longer has to worry about people asking if she is pregnant because of how much her abdomen protruded due to her severe muscle separation. She is 3 months post-op and she is overjoyed with her results.
