Cleveland Plastic Surgery Case of the Week- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
This Cleveland, Ohio patient came to Dr. Medalie for abdominal contouring (tummy tuck) after pregnancy. She had extreme stretching of the skin and muscle as well as a belly button hernia. Dr. Medalie performed the surgery as an outpatient at MetroHealth Medical Center. During the abdominoplasty he removed the excess skin and stretch marks, repaired the hernia and tightened the underlying muscle. After the procedure, the patient had a smoother, tighter belly with much less protrusion and laxity of the muscle. She was very pleased with her tummy tuck.
