This case involves a twenty-seven-year-old male who had developed significant stretch marks and striae on the right and left hip and flank regions after losing a significant amount of weight in a short period of time. As a result, he was left with excess skin and unattractive stretch marks, and he decided to have the condition corrected by surgical means. According to the patient, the surgeon explained that the surgical incisions would be below the waist line and not visible when wearing shorts. This was not the case, however, and the patient’s waist line was in worse condition than before the plastic surgery. The patient was left with significant keloid scarring that was 15 inches on both the left and right abdominal areas. The physician claimed that the scars would fade with time, but they were so thick that the patient’s waistline looked deformed and indented after the swelling subsided. The surgeon claimed that the only reparation he could offer was laser surgery to make the incision line lighter.
