Case 117: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), abdominal muscle repair




This patient is a 40 year old mother of  two who did not like her stretched abdominal skin. She was in good shape but could not get the flat tummy she wanted because of her loose muscles. We discussed a full abdominoplasty and tightening of her abdominal muscles.

At the time of her surgery, I removed a significant amount of extra skin and repaired her abdominal wall by plicating her rectus muscles. She went home the same day and had a straight forward post operative recovery. She retuned to work 2 weeks after surgery.

After her surgery, she felt we had accomplished our goal of getting her to a flat shapely abdomen. She felt comfortable "she had her own body back".
