Case 101 : Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), Liposuction of the waist and back




This patient is a 39 yearold mother of 3 who presented to my office because she felt she could not wear her shirts and dresses the way she wanted. She had stretched her abdominal support when she had children and had excess weight around her waistine. After a detailed discussion, we decided to proceed with a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction of her waist and back. 

During the abdominoplasty I found her abdominal fascia was significantly stretched and proceeded to improve her abdominal support by plicating her rectus muscles. In addition to removing the excess skin, I liposuctioned her abdomen, waist and back with a total aspirate of 3 liters.

She went home the day of surgery and had a straight forward recovery. She returned to work in approximately 3 weeks. She felt she looked great and was able to wear her shirts and dresses to her satisfaction.
