Tummy Tuck with Pubic Lift and Hernia Repair
Experiencing the common post-pregnancy changes, this patient had excess skin on her abdomen and mons pubis. Seeking to regain her pre-pregnancy body shape, she opted for a Tummy Tuck with Pubic Lift, performed by Dr. Cat. Before the surgery, this patient was 5 foot 4 inches tall and weighed 162 pounds, giving her a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27.8. This procedure helped to remove and tighten 8 inches of excess skin, significantly improving her overall body contour. In addition to the aesthetic improvement, she also reported a notable relief in her back pain post-surgery after having 5 centimeters of abdominal muscle separation repaired. Also, an umbilical hernia that had been troubling her was successfully repaired by Dr. Cat’s colleague, a skilled general surgeon, contributing to an overall enhanced quality of life. This patient is 6 months post-op.
