Before & After Abdominoplasty


This 42-year-old woman developed a protuberant abdomen following the birth of 3 children. On examination, she was found to have a wide separation of her rectus abdominis muscles with only a mild amount of skin excess. An abdominoplasty was proposed to repair her diastasis recti. Abdominoplasty was performed with the following notables:

  • outpatient surgery
  • general anesthesia
  • repair of a wide abdominal rectus diastasis
  • excision of 868g of excess tissue
  • drains were used
  • abdominal binder was worn for 6 weeks following surgery  

The photographic follow-up was obtained before and 1 year 7 months after surgery.
