Abdominoplasty - Case 10

Case ID: 0409


Oblique Left:


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.
