Body Contouring - Case: 65987
Here is a pleasant 29 year old woman from Peoria, Arizona before and after body contouring surgery including, thigh lift. She lost 75 pounds over a period of 2 years. She was extremely happy that her weight had come off through diet and exercise, but was not happy with all the loose skin and rolls. Her weight had been stable for the past 12 months when she requested major contouring surgery. Her highest recorded body mass index was 49. At the time of surgery, her body mass index was 34.2. She was not happy with the excess skin and flabbiness all around her waist. She wanted central body contouring and thigh surgery to improve her figure and reduce her thighs thighs. While I recommended this operation, I also recommended an upper body lift and arm lift for a second stage surgery. Before surgery, she is 5 feet 2 inches and weighed 193 pounds. A preoperative high protein diet was recommended. During the operation, the tissue removed weighed in at 10.5 pounds. Liposuction in the rolls of the upper and lower back allowed for the removal of 2550 cc of unwanted fat. She spent 3 nights after her plastic surgery at a local Arizona plastic surgery specialty hospital. Her before and after photos show her at 8 months since surgery.
