Procedure Details

This patient had liposuction and fat transfer by a physician not trained in plastic surgery. She developed a significant infection("FLESH EATING BACTERIA") and was hospitalized for many months in critical condition. During that time she had many surgeries to remove unhealthy infected skin that ultimately saved her life. The result of these life saving surgeries was this hideous abdominal scar. She presented to my office for advice on correction of this significant issue. She had the use of tissue expanders as one surgery to regain loss skin. Her final surgery was a tummy tuck to restore her lost abdominal contour.
