This patient consulted with Dr. Lapuerta about improving her midsection. She opted for liposuction but Dr. Lapuerta recommended a full tummy tuck to achieve the best results. Liposuction would only be removing fat and not addressing the issue of her loose skin and stretch marks. The tummy tuck would remove skin and stretch marks, and tighten her abdominal muscles. She agreed to proceed with the tummy tuck and stated that this was the best decision she had ever made. She went on to lose 25 pounds after her surgery and she feels great!
