Every now and then, we see a mom and her daughter come in for a visit in the office. This 37- year old lady, 5’9, 173lbs, size 14+, with a c- section scar and two children came in for information regarding the differences between tummy tucks and liposuction and also to learn about mommy makeover options. She was referred to the office by a friend who had surgery and who was very happy with her results.
Their first consultation was informative and exciting. We talked about fillers and injectables for the face and evaluated each for body sculpting.
This lady as concerned about the loose skin and her abdomen that created a “ledge” over her c-section scar. She also was bothered by the chafing between her thighs and the “muffin top” that hung over her pants. She had really good skin, no stretch marks, thick and toned. Although she expected that a tummy tuck was her only solution, it turned out that she was a better candidate for liposuction of all of these areas. I was confident that her great quality of skin would thighten up well enough and not need to be removed.
Her surgery went really well! She had a smooth recovery and was back to work in no time. She also had a little Botox to smooth her forehead and some Latisse to enhance her lashes. Listen to this: She lost 5,450 cc of fat with her liposuction; she lost 40lbs since surgery and is now a size 6!! She looks awesome! So does her mother…keep looking!
