This is a 45 year old mother of two, 5’6” and 171 pounds who was interested in improving her midsection. She had some skin laxity of the abdomen after her two kids, and also had a fair amount of intra-abdominal or “visceral” fat that made her abdomen round in appearance. She also had some excess fat.
We discussed the issues at hand. She had a nice figure, but her weight is contributing to abdominal fullness that I can’t correct with any of my services—she simply has to lose some weight and this will make her abdomen flatter.
We talked about her losing the weight just before and after her surgery as well. We are going to “motivate” her to some degree with the surgery. She is seen here after a liposuction with the removal of 3000 cc of aspirate and a full abdominoplasty with tightening of the inner layer of fascia. Her weight in these photographs is 166 pounds. She is very pleased with her results, her scars are healing beautifully and there is no doubt that this encounter has been a game changer for sure.
But, she needs to lose weight and realize that weight control will be life long and not just at the time of her procedures. I also performed liposuction of her neck with a nice improvement.
