Abdominal growth post abdominoplasty
Unsatisfactory mid-sectional dimensions after abdominoplasty can occur for several reasons. Acutely, there may be retained fluid collections (seroma/hematoma) . But later, increasing girth is usually a result of weight gain and can be corrected by weight loss. Occasionally, there can be inadequate muscle plication, especially in those rare cases in which a surgeon may have used a disolvable suture to repair the muscle separation (diasthasis).
