abdominoplasty and buttock lift (torsoplasty)
This lady developed severe skin laxity after losing 38 kg. of weight. She had a transverse scar over the upper abdomen, due to an emergency treatment of a complication of stomach banding. The left column shows the situation before the operation.
On the right you see the result. All skin between the transverse scar and an imaginary, transverse line halfway between the belly-button and the pubic area has been removed. The belly-button was left in place and the remaining skin was approximated around it. The old scar forced us to place the new scar in the middle of the abdomen instead of on the lower border. Surgery was continued on the back to correct the buttocks.
Age category: 30 - 34 years.
