This is the case of VHD Lipo or HD that can be associated with some other body contouring procedures. It is so that the Lipo HD can be the beginning and the final step in a dramatic transformation.

Loose skin around the belly button can happen from sudden weight loss, pregnancy and the problem can get worse as the person gets older, because the skin elasticity is reduced, and collagen production slows with age.

The stomach region can be a trouble area for people trying to get fit. Lumpy, flabby midsections can result also from excess visceral or subcutaneous body fat.

Firming the appearance of skin around the stomach of this particular patients takes a combination of two procedures: VHD & Fit Mommy Tummy Tuck, the two patented techniques that were created by Dr.  Alfredo Hoyos, this innovative and effective surgical option can achieve immediate results.

But what really affects the look of the belly in patients?

  1. The quality of one´s skin and subcutaneous tissue is partly inherited. Heredity also determines our body shape.
  2. Women with apple body shape tend to deposit fat in the entire abdominal area, women with a pear body shape, then, may be troubled with lower abdomen.
  3. Pregnancy and childbirth, obesity or weight fluctuations, of course, also have a great influence on the shape of the abdomen.
  4. The most serious problem of the abdominal wall is the abdominal rectus abdominis muscle. This trouble occurs frequently in women after childbirth.

New data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows continued growth in cosmetic procedures over the last year. According to the annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, Tummy tuck (129,753 procedures, up 2 percent from 2016).

It is clear that more women feel more confident at the time of deciding to have this surgery. This surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall.

But Dr. Hoyos not only remove the extra skin, he wanted for his patients the opportunity to look as before surgery or much better.  This technique repairs the abdominal muscles that have been over-stretched by the pregnancy through a small incision (less than a C-section scar) and add body contouring to achieve definition. This will erase the stigmata of the post-delivery belly and give a youthful appearance.

He has changed the concept of body sculpting, creating
