This is a 37-year-old woman who is interested in abdominoplasty. The patient is from Woodbury, Minnesota. She had two normal vaginal deliveries. Subsequent to her delivery, she had abdominal hernia and stretch marks. She was very unhappy with the appearance of her umbilicus.
The patient underwent full abdominoplasty. At the time of surgery, the abdominal specimen weighed 1.1 pounds. Postoperatively, the patient was very happy with her result. She was able to wear her same clothing but it was looser on the abdomen. She also felt comfortable tucking in a shirt and wearing a belt.
