A New Zealand plastic surgeon has been shocked by a woman’s plastic surgery procedure, describing the patient’s tummies as “stunning”.
In a Facebook post, Dr Stephen Brown said he had just completed the second surgery for a patient with a tummy and she was “completely devastated” when he told her that her tummy was “almost too small”.
“I was shocked when I saw her tummings and it was so close to her size,” Dr Brown said.
“She had a big smile on her face and her whole body seemed to be tingling with energy.”
It was just incredible.
The tummy had shrunk and then it had grown again.””
She’s such a lovely person and it’s just such a shame that the whole operation was so short,” he said.
New Zealand Plastic Surgeons Association (NZPSA) president Dr Mark Rafferty said the woman had been offered a second operation for the same tummy problem and that was expected.”
Dr Raffercy said the NZPSA would be conducting an internal review into the woman’s procedure. “
We have received reports that there have been some concerns from our members about the nature of the operation, but as a professional organisation we don’t have to deal with that.”

“I know there’s a lot of pressure on the profession to do the best for patients and there are some people who feel that the NZPLUS model is not working,” he added.
