Abdominoplasty Case Study 55
This lady has finished her family and has tried to restore her body back to the way it was before kids. She has a gap in her abdominal wall and she felt like she was permanently pregnant. Repair of the abdominal wall involves multiple layers of repair. This helps to narrow the dead space and also helps to prevent the formation of a seroma – a build up of fluid. Mr Ross does not use drains postoperatively and patients are mobilized immediately after surgery. The picture postop is at 6 weeks.
