This lovely senior master colorist has kept in great shape with lifting weights and watching her diet. She is on her feet all day- greeting clients, making people look and feel good, and mixing color combinations that ‘Wow’ everybody! Entering her mid 40’s has proven to be a tough transition. At 46, G3P2, 5’6” and now 145 lbs, she isn’t too happy seeing what’s happening to her body. She started noticing some “thickening” at the midsection and down into her thighs. In fact, she could see that her knees were also gaining some fullness on the inner side.
Our colorist upped her exercise game and worked further on reducing her calories but didn’t see the improvements she sought. Feeling frustrated, she talked to one of her friends who also was into exercise to gain some perspective. Her friend was into body building competitions and suggested she she make an appointment to meet with Dr. Mahony. As it turns out, she knew Dr. Mahony as a colleague at work and also from meeting at competitions.
The consultation went great! Our colorist and Dr. Mahony compared exercise and diet strategies and also talked about how the aging process effects womens’ metabolism. Our colorist was expecting to hear that a Tummy Tuck was the next step but as it turned out, that was not the case. She really didn’t have enough skin laxity for a full tummy tuck. All she needed was a little Liposuction to shape up her midsection to achieve her goals. She knew that her skin was a little loose so it would not tighten up completely but her primary goal was to achieve shape and proportion, so a little loose skin was an acceptable compromise. This was great news because the recovery would be even quicker than she had expected!
Although she was anxious initially, the day of surgery went very smoothly. She was introduced to everyone on the operating room team and the procedure and recovery were reviewed again which was reassuring. 4 liters later, she was down 2 sizes and feeling great about the whole process! She did a lot of massaging during her recovery and followed her instructions to the “T.” Now, several months later, she is beyond thrilled!
