We raised the abdomen all the way up as far as we can go so far. The next step now is actually get around the belly button, so we can make him a new belly button. Here’s his old one. He’s new one will be up here once we bring the skin down. Doctor Chopra is making great time in that abdomen. We can already start to see that he’s shaping up. That loose skin is coming off. So, we just finished mostly the entire abdominoplasty. We’re going to pull this muscle and this muscle together. All of our incisions are done. All we have left is to sew him up.

Mark my word, he will be beach ready.
