In this review, we illustrate the spectrum of imaging features after plastic surgical procedures including transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap, deep inferior epigastric perforators flap, latissimus dorsi flap, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and buttocks augmentation. Examples of complications, including seromas, abscesses, fat necrosis, abdominal hernia, and flap necrosis, will also be discussed.
