Seattle Plastic Surgeon riffs on how those Downton Abbey women stay so slim and what it all has to do with the modern day tummy tuck.
The ladies of Downton Abbey spend a lot of time having their corsets laced up by their maids – and it’s always right before they go down for dinner. No wonder they all stay so slim. Who can overeat when laced up tight?
And this brings me to a recent study about weight loss in ladies who have had a tummy tuck. This is a common observation in my practice but I had never before seen it reported in the plastic surgery literature. It seems that the internal corset that is part of most tummy tuck operations results in automatic portion control just like an old fashioned corset does.
Just another great thing about tummy tuck. You get to wear your corset 24/7 and you don’t even need a maid!
