With weight loss, there is often an excess of skin that is most apparent in the lower abdomen. However upper skin excess may also be apparent and it is important to consider the pros and cons of an abdominoplasty and a vertical scar abdominoplasty to address all the relevant areas. Often a traditional abdominoplasty can improve the upper excess although this is very patient dependent. In this case, a traditional abdominoplasty has been performed. The scars seen in this patient are seen after 6 months postop and the swelling above the scar and the quality of the scar will still take a number of further months to settle and mature.
At a consultation, it is important to run through all the pros and cons and the various options of abdominal rejuvenation surgery so that you can be empowered to proceed.
