Although never satisfied with the appearance of her abdomen, this 58 year-old womanwas especially concerned with the appearance of her abdomen after successfully achieveing massive weight loss following gastric bypass surgery. The patient underwent a cosmetic abdominoplasty which involved removing skin and fat from her lower abdomen. Since the patient had never been pregnant her muscles were remarkably tight and she did not require a muscle plication or tightening of a rectus diastasis.

Two weeks later, after a 2 and one half hour operation, the patient was back at work.
