Dr. David Newman Plastic Surgeon Featured Patient Featured Patient

The patient is a 32 year old Temecula woman and mother of three who felt that her tummy stuck out too far despite not being overweight. She also noted excess skin of the lower abdomen when she sat down. She thought that the fullness in her hips made her look heavy.  She had a tummy tuck with Temecula Plastic Surgeon Dr. Newman, with liposculpture of the hips. The full tummy tuck, also called a standard tummy tuck or standard abdominoplasty, treats not only excess skin of the upper and lower abdomen but also flattens the entire abdomen by tightening the muscle layer of the front of the abdomen. Actually, what the plastic surgeon really tightens is fascia,  which are layers of thin white sheets all compressed into one strong layer that covers the front of the abdomen under the skin. The fascia is the "container" of the abdomen . Pregnancy and weight gain stretch the abdominal fascia and after pregnancy the fascia remains loose permanently. As the patient described, when the fascia is stretched out it can make the patient look a lot heavier than they actually are because the loose fascia makes their abdomen stick out.  In this patient, liposuction of the hips had a big effect on the patient's appearance. Liposuction, or liposculpture, removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. Patients who have a tummy tuck almost always have suction of the hips.  Liposculpture allows the plastic surgeon to extend treatment around the body without extending the scar and helps to decrease the waistline measurement.
