*After a weight loss of over 100 pounds, this woman decided to look into having the excess skin on her abdomen removed. In her case she needed only a tummy tuck. The skin on her belly was released from her entire abdominal wall and her abdominal wall was sutured to alleviate the laxity. Then the excess skin was removed and her belly button was sewn back into the new position. As a result of the procedure, she is able to wear appropriately sized clothing and is much more comfortable. The other obvious result is aesthetic and the fact that she feels better about her appearance.
