This is a 40-year-old woman from River Falls, Wisconsin who was interested in abdominoplasty. She had three children. Two of her children were delivered via Cesarean section. Prior to surgery, she had abdominal wall laxity and stretch marks above and below the umbilicus.
Postoperatively, the patient was very happy with her result. She had much improved abdominal contour and she had liposuction of the flanks as well and much improved flank contour.
She did have some blistering as the result of the Steri-Strips on her lower abdominal incision which you can see some darkened spots still on her lower abdominal wall. This should resolve in time.
