This patient had lost a significant amount of weight following a gastric bypass procedure. After her bypass surgery, she felt amazing, like a huge weight had been lifted from her as she shed pounds. However, she was left with an excess of hanging tissue. This problem often accompanies massive weight loss. Dr. Wooten performed an abdominoplasty, during which she tightened the patient's muscles and excised her excess skin. Due to the patient's true excess of skin, Dr. Wooten performed her tummy tuck in the fleur-de-lis style, which allows her to recontour the waistline of patients who have lost massive amounts of weight in a manner that a traditional tummy tuck would not.
