This lovely 59 yo lady, G3P3, 5’5” and 160 lbs, had been self-conscious about her midsection all of her life. After having children, it became more of an issue because people still thought she was pregnant. Finding clothes that fit was a real problem, her waist was large but her hips were narrow…everything needed to be taken in by a tailor. She felt she should do everything she could to manage her shape herself. She worked with a nutritionist and a trainer and lost 50 lbs. Despite the weight loss, she still had a very protruding belly. That’s when she decided to get some expert help as to “next step” solutions.
Her daughter suggested visiting a plastic surgeon. This lady went online in search of a woman doctor- this was such a personal issue that she wanted to speak with someone who could best understand how a woman feels. A study of the internet and patient reviews readily brought Dr. Mahony to her attention. She loved what she read and immediately made her appointment. She looked at the photo gallery and read about all of the procedures and signed up for the newsletters.
The consultation was very informative and reassuring, she felt she was absolutely in the right hands. As she suspected, a tummy tuck was the best solution and she also wanted a little liposuction to trim up her sides. The surgery was exactly as had been described to her by Dr Mahony. And the recovery was as well. She loved Dr Mahony’s Tissue Repair Gel which helped with her massaging and bruising during the recovery.
It’s hard to imagine that she had 2 ½ lbs of tissue removed and 1500cc of fat with the liposuction. But now that she is down two sizes and 15 lbs, it’s very easy to be happy and buying clothes that FIT!
