Abdominoplasty - Case 10Case ID: 0409
53 year-old woman with recent 50 lb. weight loss. She is now 5' 3" and currently 143 lbs. for a calculated body mass index of 27. She has had two previous pregnancies and an abdominal hysterectomy as well a laparoscopic tubal ligation which was complicated by a post-op wound infection requiring wide opening of the abdominal midline and secondary healing. She is seen here one year following a full abdominoplasty with translocation of the umbilicus. Happily she had an uneventful post-op course and subsequently lost an 15 lbs. following that surgery. The improvement in contour reflects both the surgery and the additional weight loss.
