Before having children, this 41-year-old mom had a sculpted, hourglass figure, and she wanted to regain her slim physique. However, even though she was healthy she found that her loose skin and stretch marks would not improve, and the patches of fat along her waist and hips seemed to resist all her dieting. She heard that Plastic Surgery's board-certified plastic surgeons have helped pioneer new methods of Los Angeles liposuction, so she scheduled a consultation to find out more about her options.
Some patients have one big "problem area" that they want to correct, but like most women after pregnancy this woman wanted to recontour a few different areas at the same time. Her doctor explained that a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) would be the best way to tighten her abdominal muscles, and power-assisted liposuction (PAL) would slim her belly, hips, and waist area very smoothly. Compared to less-sophisticated methods, PAL offers faster healing and smoother results, especially for the larger fatty patches that often appear after pregnancy.
After her surgery, the patient healed very nicely, and she looks great. A few small stretch marks are still visible below her belly button, but they appear very thin and almost invisible now that her belly is so flat and firm. She is very happy to have her "pre-baby" body back, and she was very pleased with the outcome of her Beverly Hills area plastic surgery.
