Abstract The results and complications of abdominoplasty in 20 consecutive multiparous women with very severe musculoaponeurotic laxity are presented. All patients presented with an abdomen that resembled a full-term pregnancy when the patient was in the erect posture. This very severe laxity was the end result of repeated pregnancies. All patients underwent a standard abdominoplasty with wide longitudinal plication using size 1 prolene sutures. Follow-up averaged 1 year. None of the patients had a major complication. However, all the patients had recurrence of the musculoaponeurotic laxity. Causes and classification of this recurrent laxity are discussed along with possible solutions.
