The patient in this case had very localized, excessive subcutaneous fat in the abdominal area. She was a candidate for Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) but was totally unwilling to accept neither the scar nor the longer recovery of a tummy tuck.
“Normal” tumescent liposuction would have been wholly insufficient in this case. This would have lead to unsightly saggy skin. We performed a combined approach including BodyJet liposculpture with laser liposuction for skin retraction.
This case is an excellent example to demonstrate the potential for skin retraction in cases of moderate skin excess. The procedure was done under local anesthetic. The patient went home directly afterwards. We were able to receive a very good result with this minimally invasive, scar free approach. The patient was very pleased to have such a result without the abominoplasty scar.
