Bariatric Body Contouring – 55 Year Old Executive
The patient is a 55-year-old female who had a laparoscopic gastric bypass four years before presenting to Dr. Hall for body contouring surgery. She had lost approximately 100 pounds and was unhappy with the excess skin and fat present around her waist and upper thighs.
She was uninterested in having a circumferential procedure (a body lift) because of the amount of recovery required. Instead, she opted for an extended high lateral tension abdominoplasty and limited liposuction of the flanks. This accomplished her cosmetic goals and had very pleasing effects on her abdomen, waist, flanks, and thighs.
She was able to return to work two weeks after surgery with a renewed sense of confidence (and in need of a new wardrobe!).
