The aponeurotic layer is a very important element to consider during abdominoplasty. For most patients, a simple midline plication is enough to obtain good results. However, for in patients with severe aponeurotic laxity, some other maneuvers must be performed. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of polypropylene mesh in this group of patients. We analyzed the results for 20 patients in whom three types of mesh anchoring were used on the basis of intraoperative findings. Adequate long-term follow-up results were obtained, with no recurrence of rectus diastases, as shown by ultrasonography.
