Tummy tucks before & after

Tummy tuck surgery may be the perfect solution for overweight patients, patients that have lost a lot of weight or women who are finished with childbirth yet struggle to get into shape. The procedure removes excess fat, eliminates loose skin and restores weakened abdominal muscles. During surgery, Dr. Bernard Beldholm makes careful incisions into the patient’s skin while using liposuction to remove unwanted fat. In this gallery, you’ll find amazing before and after images of tummy tuck surgery. Following this life-changing procedure, most patients are left with a smoother, flatter stomach free from unflattering sagging skin. Many patients will also notice a dramatic improvement in their self-esteem and find that they no longer need to hide behind baggy clothes.

How is this page organised?

We have tried to organise this page so that you get a good overview of the results that we can provide for you. There is a lot of before and afters and lots of different angles and photos. We are upfront with out results and try to show every angle as well as the scarring at different stages of the healing process. In the last few years Dr Beldholm has also been videotaping his before and after results to give you an even more realistic view of the result. You will find lots of video results on this page as well.

As we have so much material to show you we have organised our before and after results for tummy tucks and body lifts on multiple pages. In addition to the before and after results we have also written up detailed case studies for many of our patients.

On this page you will find one photo of each of the patients. There is a short description of the patient under the photo, and there is a link to a separate page that will show you other material available for this patient, such as other photos, videos of the result and any case studies.

This way we are able to keep this page nice and tidy so you to easily get an overview of the before and after photos.
