This is a 64 year old lady who had presented to our Tucson, Arizona office for evaluation for a tummy tuck. She had a laparoscopic gastric bypass over eleven years ago and had lost over 100 pounds. Her weight had been stable for several years and she had reached her goal weight. Her bariatric surgeon had been monitoring her nutritional status and her nutrition levels were all within normal levels. Excess abdominal skin remained after her weight loss that could not be resolved with diet and exercise. Her redundant abdominal skin made it difficult to find clothes that reflected her new figure.  In our discussion I felt that she was a good candidate for a tummy tuck and liposuction.  I explained that a tummy tuck would remove her excess abdominal skin and that we would tighten her abdominal muscles to give her a flatter and firmer abdomen. I also recommended that liposuction be performed at the same time to improve the contour of her flanks.  During her surgery she had approximately ten inches of excess skin removed and over one liter of fat removed through liposuction.  Postoperatively she did quite well and was up and walking around shortly after surgery.  She had drains placed at the time of surgery and they were removed ten days out from surgery.  Currently she is seven months out from her tummy tuck and liposuction and she is thrilled with her new figure that reflects all of the weight she has lost.
