This is a 32 year old woman and mother of three that had presented to our office in Tucson, Arizona. She was bothered by the appearance of her abdomen. Her job was very demanding and she felt like she was frequently developing a rash in the fold of her abdomen and did not like the way that her clothes fit on her. She was done having children and her weight had been stable for the past year. Despite diet and exercise she had persistent abdominal fat that she could not get rid of. On physical exam she had well healed C-section scar and excess skin and fat that was concentrated in her lower abdomen. I felt she was a good candidate for abdominoplasty with liposuction. Her surgery was performed at an outpatient surgery center in Tucson, Arizona. She underwent an abdominoplasty with liposuction. During the surgery power assisted liposuction was performed as was plication of her rectus muscles. The plication uses sutures to create an internal corset and gives her abdomen a smooth and flat contour.  All of the excess skin above her belly button was removed and her belly button was repositioned.  She had drains placed at the time of her surgery.  After her surgery she spent time in recovery and was discharged home on oral pain medication.  She had an uneventful recovery, her drains were removed. She was able to return to work on light duty after two weeks. At six weeks she did not have any restrictions. She is eight months out from her tummy tuck and loves the way her abdomen looks.
