This patient, early 50s, wishes to regain the contour of her midsection. She is in great shape and physical condition. But, like many women, the muscles in her abdominal wall have been stretched due to pregnancy, muscles that often will not revert to their original state, no matter how much exercise is done. In addition, she would like to get rid of some of the excess skin and fat in the area. She decided on a combination of procedures. During a single surgical session, she underwent a full Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), with resection of muscles, and removal and resection of excess skin and tissue. She also had Liposuction of multiple areas; including the upper and mid abdomen and flanks, as well as the chest and back. In all, approximately 750cc of fat was removed.
