This 46-year-old mother of 2 children was unhappy with the loose, flabby-looking skin and muscles in her abdominal area, a common concern that many post-pregnancy women want to correct. She had healthy habits and clear goals for a fitter appearance, so she decided that is was time to make an appointment with Dr. Andrew Smith to put her goals into action. She met with him for a tummy tuck consultation in Orange County.
The patient quickly found that Dr. Smith had answers to even her most detailed questions. He listened to her goals, and explained how a combined tummy tuck and liposuction procedure would meet these expectations. He recommended liposuction to remove fat from her waist area, along with a tummy tuck to sculpt her abdomen and give her a flatter, trimmer, and healthier appearance. The patient felt confident that these procedures would meet her needs, so she and Dr. Smith scheduled a day for her surgery.
Dr. Smith performed her combined procedure with precision and special attention to her needs. For her tummy tuck, he made a horizontal incision between her hips, and through this incision tightened her abdominal muscles before removing the excess fat and skin. He followed this step with liposuction of the waist area to give her a better curve at her hips and eliminate the “lumpy” areas she disliked.
Just two months after her surgery, this patient is enjoying her trim and attractive new figure. Through plastic surgery, Dr. Smith revealed her natural curves in a very flattering way, and she is highly pleased with her results.
