Abdominoplasty with Liposuction in Northern Virginia ( Loudoun Virginia )

Procedure Details

Mommy Makeover of a 45 year old before and after a full abdominoplasty that included liposuction of the flanks and outer thighs as well as tightening of the rectus muscle. Tightening of the rectus muscle not only strengthens the stomach, but brings in the waist like a corset. A full abdominoplasty is a 3 hour procedure that is performed as an outpatient. I use the Loudoun Ambulatory Surgery Center located in Leesburg, Virginia; and owned by the INOVA Hospital system. The addition of liposuction to the procedure can add about 30 minutes per area.
