Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Before and After Pictures by Bivik Shah, MD

This patient is a 48 year old woman from Orient, Ohio. She came to The Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery for an abdominoplasty surgery (Tummy-Tuck). This surgery is done to remove the excess skin and fat from the abdomen. The abdominal muscles are tightened as well. The incision runs from hip to hip and Dr. Bivik Shah makes sure to make the incision low enough that it can be hidden below the panty-line. This patient had 5.9lbs removed and her after photos were taken 5 months after surgery.
