Skin-only extended abdominoplasty

Procedure Details

This thirty-nine year-old woman had loose abdominal wall skin after childbearing. She had good tightness of the deep muscle/fascia layer and she did not want the recovery of a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty.) On the right she is three months after a skin-only abdominoplasty. when a skin-only abdominoplasty is done, and there is no rectus plication, the recovery is much easier. Usually you can go back to work in a week to ten days, and you can be more mobile. For a full tummy tuck Dr. Trott recommends two full weeks off and no heavy lifting for six week.
