This 53 year-old woman had an emergency C section over 30 years ago. It was a vertical scar and it healed with a vertical indentation. She could not see her belly button and no matter what she did the front of her abdomen had a deep cleft. She had an abdominoplasty and liposuction of the lovehandles in which we were able to remove the entire C section scar, and the skin around the cleft. We repaired her diastasis and we also liposuctioned her lovehandles. She is shown at 4 months after surgery.
