Tummy Tuck in Cleveland, Ohio-Plastic Surgery Case of the Week

May 23, 2011

This patient from Columbus, Ohio came up to Cleveland to see  Dr. Medalie about abdominal contouring  (tummy tuck) after pregnancy and dramatic weight loss. She had extreme stretching of the skin and muscle and a fold of tissue above the belly button. Dr. Medalie performed the surgery as an outpatient at the MetroHealth West 150th surgery center in Cleveland. During the tummy tuck procedure he removed the excess skin and stretch marks and tightened the underlying muscle. After the procedure, the patient had a smoother, tighter belly with much less protrusion and laxity of  the muscle. From the side it is apparent that she has no hanging skin. She was very pleased with her tummy tuck.
