This patient is a 32 year old female from Bridgeport Connecticut who needed to undergo a hysterectomy for heavy menstrual bleeding. After her previous pregnancies, she had excess loose abdominal skin and stretch marks. In addition, she had separation of her abdominal muscles in the middle, called rectus diastasis. This gave her quite a prominent bulge that was worse when she was straining or doing any exercises. Exercising did not improve the bulge or make her abdomen any flatter. She was interested in a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) at the same time as her hysterectomy. This is a safe procedure and saves the patient from undergoing anesthesia twice.
Her surgery was performed and she had a hysterectomy, a full abdominoplasty, repair of the separated muscles (rectus diastasis repair), and liposuction of the sides (flanks) of her abdomen. This gave her a nice, smooth, and tight abdominal contour. The before and after images show her only 3 weeks after the surgery. She is incredibly happy with the flat contour and the result. Her scar is hidden completely beneath her underwear.
