As a 34-year old mother of three from Norwalk Connecticut, this patient was tired of going to the gym and not seeing results he wanted. At 5’2 and 120lbs, she was not happy about the appearance of her abdomen, and although she is athletic and enjoys tennis and golf, she was not happy about the extra fat arounf her stomach. She was a size 10.
In our consultation, she described it as a frustrating not seeing any results from her efforts to lose the weight, I explained to her that it isn’t just the weight that’s her problem. Due to her multiple pregnancies, the muscles in her abdomen had weakened and the skin was no longer attached to those muscles the way they once had been. In order to correct this problem we decided she should undergo an abdominoplasty.
During the procedure I removed 1,950cc of tissue and fat from her abdominal region and also did liposuction of her posterior hips. After surgery she felt some tightness but was able to get around quite well. Within a month she had resumed all of her activities.
Now she tells me that she has noticed major results after the gym. As a svelte size 4, she says it was all worth it because she can finally wear the low riding yoga pants she had always dreamed of wearing. The incision has faded but her shape will last a lifetime.
