This 57-year-old woman was searching for a surgeon who perform a tummy tuck in Orange County. She had lost about 100 pounds from the gastric bypass surgery and was close to her goal weight. She knew she had to find a plastic surgeon that she could trust, and she found Dr. Andrew Smith.
When this patient came to Dr. Smith’s office for a consultation, she was unsure whether he would be able to meet her specific needs. She was concerned about how her midsection would look after the procedure. Seeing as Dr. Smith is a plastic surgeon who is skilled in liposuction, this patient inquired about liposuction in addition to a tummy tuck to achieve the body shape she wanted.
After discussing her options for body contouring, Dr. Smith decided that having a tummy tuck would provide her with the improvements she desired. They created a surgical plan together and discussed every step of the process.
