This patient had multiple pregnancies and developed a ventral hernia. Also, weakness of the rectus muscle caused her hernia to get worse.

No other plastic surgeon has the knowledge and experience like Dr. Michael Byun. For this patient, Dr. Byun performed a high lateral abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with VASER® Lipo that led to the dramatic and beautiful results. The patient's abdomen is not stretched and Dr. Byun restored the patient's natural curvature.

Combining a tummy tuck with liposuction (VASER® Lipo) is a complex procedure that draws upon a plastic surgeon's experience to get the best results. For example, in the above case, liposuction was performed at the central abdomin. Drawing much would have resulted in necrotic tissue (dead tissue) while drawing too little would have resulted in unfavorable results where the central area would have bulged out. This knowledge, experience, and ability to very selectively draw out the appropriate amount of fat separates Dr. Byun from other plastic surgeons.

In addition to Dr. Byun's expertise in Vaser Lipo, Dr. Byun performs a high lateral tension abdominoplasty. This procedure pulls the side of the abdomin that results in the elegant curvature. Also, Dr. Byun's tummy tuck salvages and saves the peripheral blood vessels allowing Dr. Byun to thin out the flap safely.

There is a difference between plastic surgeons. Please explore Dr. Byun's website for more information or call our office at 847-513-6899.

  • Ventral Hernia Repair and Tummy Tuck
The patient had a previous abdominoplasty and had complications from the previous surgeon. She ended up with the T-shaped scar below the belly button and the transverse scar as well. The patient suffered from the large ventral hernia where the previous plication of the muscle did not work. Dr. Byun performed a ventral hernia repair and the ventral hernia and re-do her tummy tuck. Take notice that her mid-line scar and groin areas became even from Dr. Byun's corrective surgery.
