Tummy Tuck Around Ileostomy by Dr. Juris Bunkis of Orange County Plastic Surgery*

Procedure Details

This female in her mid 40's had a lot of skin excess following a weight loss of over 100 pounds. She had had a prior ileostomy for Crohn's disease and had seen a few plastic surgeons, all of whom refused to do a tummy tuck in face of her ileostomy. Her Crohn's disease was stable and she was otherwise healthy. She had heard that Dr. Juris Bunkis of Orange County Plastic Surgery of Newport Beach, California had been double board certified in both General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and sought consultation with him. Dr. Bunkis explained that it was possible to disconnect the bowl loop coming through the skin to form the ileostomy from the remaining skin without damaging the ileostomy and to reinsert the ileostomy into a new location after the skin flap had been pulled inferiorly to remove the excess skin. She had her abdominoplasty with Dr. Bunkis, no damage was done to the ileostomy, and she not only loved the visual improvement but also found it much easier to care for her ileostomy without the massive skin excess and lax skin around it! over a hundred pound weight loss, before and after a tummy tuck around the ileostomy - actual patient of Dr. Juris Bunkis of Orange County Plastic Surgery of Newport Beach, California.
