Clinical Case Study:
Catarina's Renewal with Abdominoplasty

At 36, Catarina Santos achieved a transformative body contouring through Abdominoplasty performed by Dr. António Conde. This case study navigates Catarina’s journey from her initial concern with abdominal adiposity and excess skin to her stunning, rejuvenated physique post-surgery.

Patient Background

Catarina Santos sought a solution for the adiposity and excess skin that obscured her natural body shape, aiming for a more toned and attractive physique. With specific goals to eliminate these concerns and enhance her overall silhouette, Catarina entrusted her Abdominoplasty to the skilled hands of Dr. António Conde.

The Procedure

Abdominoplasty - Tummy Tuck Surgery

Abdominoplasty offered Catarina a comprehensive approach to address her abdominal concerns. Dr. Conde’s surgical plan included the removal of excess skin and fat and the tightening of the abdominal muscles (rectus muscle plication), promising not just aesthetic improvement but also enhanced abdominal tone.

Preoperative Concerns

  • Adiposity: Significant fatty accumulation contributing to an undesired abdominal profile.
  • Excess Skin: Loose, sagging skin diminishing the body’s natural contours.
  • Desired Outcome: Aiming for a firmer, more defined abdomen that reflects her inherent beauty.

Postoperative Outcomes

  • Sleeker Abdominal Profile: Eight weeks post-surgery, Catarina showcased a significantly reduced adiposity and absence of excess skin.
  • Muscle Tightening: The rectus muscle plication achieved during her tummy tuck provided a much tighter abdominal wall, enhancing her overall figure.
  • Enhanced Belly Button Visibility: The surgical adjustments brought about a more aesthetically pleasing and visible belly button, contributing to the desired attractive physique.
