This woman in her mid 50's came to her San Diego plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Chaffoo because she wanted to correct her abdominal bulging that had been caused by pregnancy. After years of trying to tone and flatten her abdomen through diet and regular exercise, she decided to seek the help of a skilled plastic surgeon.

Tummy tuck surgery, technically called abdominoplasty, can help women and men achieve a flat, toned abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, and repairing abdominal muscles. Many tummy tuck patients who visit Dr. Chaffoo also choose a San Diego liposuction procedure to complete their abdominal enhancement. He didn't recommend liposuction for this patient because she didn't have areas of stubborn fat deposits.

The tummy tuck was performed as an outpatient procedure so the patient was able to go home the same day after her surgery. Dr. Chaffoo tightened her abdominal wall muscles and removed excess skin through an incision that can now be concealed by a small bikini bathing suit.

This patient is happy she took the step to meet with Dr. Chaffoo and learn about her options. She is pleased with her flat abdomen and smooth profile, and feels confident in form fitting workout clothes as well as bikinis.
