This 40-year-old tummy tuck patient first came to our Champaign, IL-area practice with a triumphant 100-pound weight-loss story. While dramatic weight loss offers many benefits, it almost always leaves behind the new physical and emotional challenges of dealing with unwanted sagging skin and tissue in multiple areas of the body. In spite of losing 100 pounds and achieving a normal weight, she was unable to wear clothing comfortably. She disliked her abdomen's double apron, large pooch, and loose, sagging skin. At 5 feet 2 inches and 130 pounds, she knew her weight loss was only the first step in achieving a healthy, proportionate body. She decided to move forward with cosmetic surgery to help her reach her goals and complete her transformation.

She was a good candidate for surgery as she had maintained a stable weight for more than 2 years. Dr. Castillo helped correct her problems using a Type IV abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). During this procedure, he tightened her muscle structure and removed fat and skin for a streamlined contour. This was done in our accredited outpatient surgery facility in Champaign-Urbana, using general anesthesia.

She was active and ambulatory the evening of surgery and returned to work in 7 days. The result is a body that is well proportioned. She is now able to wear clothing that fits well, and her midsection is free of bulges and hanging skin. She has noticed increased core strength and easier movements, as well as less excess tissue, particularly while seated. She is finally comfortable and confident in her new appearance and is pleased with her results.

If you like the results you see here, request a consultation to learn more about how this procedure can help you achieve your ideal appearance. We encourage you to print your favorite photos and bring them with you during your consultation to help communicate your goals and expectations.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique, and results will vary.
