This 39 year old patient and mother has done it all for the family and now wants to do something for herself. The patient presented with a desire to have a more shapely body and flatter stomach. She like so many other Mom's could not get rid of the excess tissue and fatty deposits along with the gained weight. During the interview many things were discussed including a tummy tuck and liposuction. Many times the breasts are also done with this type of case but this was not this patient's desire. She was bothered mostly by the deposits of fat on the abdomen, upper back and hips/waist. A plan was outlined to approach her goals and many patient pictures were shown to her during the consultation so she could see what she might expect for her surgical procedure. Many doctors vary with their incisions and how the liposuction is done. I basically like combination procedures and get the intended result with one procedure rather than breaking it up for various sessions. I like to be aggressive with the liposuction and tightening of the muscles because you can feel the structures under the fatty layers and with their removal, the more youthful body shapes are revealed. The procedure takes about 3 hours and is done as an outpatient or if the patient desires, they can stay overnight. Most patients want to be home so no issue. The patient is seen in these photos at 2 months post op !!! It takes about a year to see the final result so these pictures do not show the final result. Notice several aspects of this patients results besides the obvious. The angle and lateral post op pictures of the waist show a very attractive buttocks curve. This is enhanced because of the liposuction in the waist and in the area above the buttock crease. This is many times quite thick and with the fatty tissue deposit in this area, the buttocks looks more flattened. Note also that the abdomen is very flat even at this early post op time. This is due to the tightening of the muscles in the midline and this step allows the patient to have more abdominal strength and aids in bowel activity, exercising etc. Many secondary gains. You can imagine how this patient has regained her confidence in clothing and without. Happy Patient = Happy Doctor.
