58 year old woman, 5’6”, 2 children, four months after lipoabdominoplasty. Vaser assisted liposuction was done of the abdomen, waist, flanks, and bra rolls.
Total 13 lbs. removed including 7 from flap and about 6 of liposuction fat.
The flap was re-attached to the abdominal wall with progressive tension and quilting sutures so no drain was needed, and none was used. Exparel was given to minimize post-op pain.
