This athletic 33 year old woman from North Richland Hills visited my Southlake plastic surgery office interested in a tummy tuck procedure. She was unhappy with the appearance of her abdomen due to lax skin after delivering 2 children via c-section. Formal exercise with pilates and running between 10 to 15 miles per week was great for her muscle tone, but could not address the skin excess and abdominal wall laxity.

We decided to perform an extended abdominoplasty to address her concerns. The surgery took just under 3.5 hours to complete. I found that she had 4 cm of true abdominal wall laxity and was able to tighten it an additional 4 cm. I removed 1175 gm (2.5 lb) of skin and fat. Her post operative recovery was nearly pain-free, but she did have a small seroma requiring aspiration despite leaving the drains in longer than normal. Now two months after surgery, her abdomen looks wonderful and she is back at a nearly normal exercise routine. (Running only 2 miles per jog than her normal 3.)
