This mom had a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with fascial plication (muscle tightening) and progressive tension suturing. Notice the following: 1) The effects of the fascial plication in narrowing the torso and the width of the rectus muscles (six pack muscles). Look at the definition of the midline and the outer shadows of these muscles. 3) The amount of skin removal allowed by progressive tension suturing with a removal of all excess tissues from the navel to the pubis and allowing drain removal in less than a week. 4) The fine incisional repair which is still slightly red and healing. Will be faded at one year.
