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

This 34 year old woman came to The Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery for a tummy tuck. She had a lot of excess skin and fat in this area that had been bothering her. She met with Dr. Bivik Shah and he told her that the best way to get rid of this is with a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty). This is when the excess skin and fat is cut out, the abdominal muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is pulled tight. This patient in particular had 7.2lbs removed from her abdomen with this procedure. The after photo was taken four and a half months after surgery. As with any plastic surgery procedure, the scar takes about a year and a half before it looks its absolute best!
