Case Number 2491: Abdominoplasty after Massive Weight Loss

This 47 year old male patient from Chino Hills, California had massive weight loss (lost about 98lbs) after Lap Band surgery and was left with a moderate amount of excess skin around the abdominal wall. He found Dr. Pousti while searching for a board certified plastic surgeon and was impressed with his experience with abdominoplasty surgery as well as surgery after weight-loss.

The day prior to surgery the patient meets with Dr. Pousti in the office for markings. During the markings appointment the patient has a chance to see where the scars will be and also to ask Dr. Pousti last minute questions. The markings are gone over with the patient in a full-length mirror. The incisions and exact procedure are reviewed with the patient as well.

22Markings are performed and show where liposuction will be performed during the tummy tuck procedure.

Above, you can see the port that was placed during the Lap Band Surgery.  The port will still be functional after this tummy tuck procedure.  Once the patient is in the Operating Room, additional markings are made to show where the muscles will be brought together to create the desirable waistline.

After the muscle repair is completed the excess tissue is removed from the abdomen using cautery. A new location is made (in the skin) for the umbilicus and the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.
