With pregnancy, the layers of the abdominal wall are stretched and the skin is stretched. The amount of skin excess removed is from just above the pubic hairline up to the level of the tummy button. The remaining skin is dissected and pulled down. If one looks at the mole in the abdomen on the preoperative image just above the umbilicus – this was removed when repositioning the bely button in the postop image. It gives one an idea of how the skin will stretch with the undermining of a full tummy tuck.
