A post shared by Effie Politis, MD, FACS (@dreffiepolitis)

This lovely patient is 41 years old and has lower abdominal laxity and skin changes consistent with having two children. She was interested in abdominal rejuvenation.

During her evaluation, her diastases were evaluated as well as any previous surgeries and possible hernias. Skin tone and skin laxity were also assessed. With diet and exercise, she was able to get down to her ideal weight. This allowed us to remove more skin during the abdominoplasty and perform a tighter plication. With our enhanced recovery protocols, the patient was back to work within 7 days. ⁣Typically these procedures require drain but there are some patients who are a candidate for drainless abdominoplasty. Please come see me, and find your best option!⁣ Watch out for upcoming posts this week on some behind-the-scenes for this procedure! ⁣
