Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Case 6
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Case 6 This 39 year-old woman has had 4 babies with two pregnancies, having triplets her second time. In addition to her loose, stretched abdominal skin and muscles, she has a C-section scar, and an ugly retracted appendectomy scar that distorts her lower right abdomen. She underwent abdominoplasty at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery as an outpatient operation. A previously-undiagnosed ventral hernia was repaired during her cosmetic surgery (both MPS plastic surgeons were fully-trained Board-certified general surgeons prior to their plastic surgery careers). Her tiny umbilical stitches were removed at one week from surgery, and her drain was out by the 10th post-op day. Her scars will fade over 6-12 months.
