Post-Weight loss surgery, abdominoplasty with liposuction in Tucson, AZ

Procedure Details

This is a 52 year old gentleman that had come to our Tucson, Arizona office. He had undergone laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and subsequently lost 120 lbs. He presented and was interested in body contouring. His weight had been stable for a year and half and he had reached his goal weight. He was interested in surgery because he had been having difficulty finding pants to fit because of his excess skin and rashes under his skin folds. On his initial consultation, I felt he was a good candidate for a tummy tuck and liposuction to provide better contour of his abdomen. He underwent his tummy tuck and liposuction at a surgery center in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to removing his excess skin he also had his belly button repositioned. His abdominal muscles were sutured to give his abdomen a flatter profile. After surgery he spent time in the recovery room at the outpatient surgery center and was discharged home the same day. He had drains placed at the time of surgery and those were removed in the first two weeks. After the drains were removed he was able to shower. He wore a compression garment at all times for the first six weeks and then transitioned to wearing it just at night. The garment helps with the postoperative swelling. He is now five months out from tummy tuck and loves the way his new body better reflects all of the weight he had lost.
