This 38-year-old mother of two came to see Dr. Piazza for a tummy tuck at his Austin plastic surgery practice. After two pregnancies— and a regular diet and exercise program consisting of running and weight training 4 days a week—she was frustrated with the appearance of her waistline and tummy region. She sought a consultation with Dr. Piazza regarding a tummy tuck procedure. Even with a regular exercise routine, she was unable to achieve her pre-pregnancy abdomen. Dr. Piazza reassured her that this is normal in some patients and is largely attributed to the changes that the female body undergoes during pregnancy. She underwent a tummy tuck procedure and liposuction around her waist which took about 4 hours to perform. She is depicted here at 6 weeks. She is most happy about the appearance of her belly button as seen here. She has completed Dr. Piazza’s Scar Protocol at this point.
Provider: Dr. Rocco C. Piazza, M.D., FACS
