Abdominoplasty and flank liposuction in an athletic woman

Procedure Details

This fifty-six year-old Los Angeles woman was very fit and athletic, however had laxity of her deep abdominal wall that could not be corrected with any exercise. The pictures on the right show her three months after an abdominoplasty with rectus plication and liposuction of the flanks in an effort to give her torso a more feminine look with a waist. This type of body habitus with a high waist and narrow hips can be challenging to fix, but we were able to do so and keep the transverse scar low beneath her underwear line. Not only is she thrilled with her new, more feminine look, but the tightening of the deep abdominal wall layer (internal corset) has given significant increased support to her back and she no longer has back pain.
