This lovely 48 year old was a single mother who just wanted to feel good about how her body looked. During her pregnancy, which was normal, her skin was stretched beyond it tensile strength. As a result she ended up with loose skin that hung over her panties, an overly large belly button and a droopy buttock. Losing weight only made it look worse and hang more. She wanted a body that she felt good about so she could wear fitted and sexy little dresses. She did not want to be embarrassed on the beach any longer.
During her consultation Dr. Marc DuPéré went over all of her options. Dr. DuPéré suggested what procedure would benefit her most is a full Belt Lipectomy with Liposuction to the rolls, abdomen, flanks and outer thighs. The Belt Lipectomy or Body Lift would remove all the excess skin across her abdomen, flatten her stomach, tighten her stomach muscles, reduce the size of her belly button, lift her bottom, reduce the size of her thighs and give her back the hour glass shape figure she wanted. Dr. DuPere suggested she go home and think about it before making any decisions. Two weeks later she came back to Visage Clinic to talk with Dr. DuPéré again as she had decided to proceed Belt Lipectomy with body sculpting using Liposuction.
The procedure was done under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility, with a board certified anesthetist and OR nurses that specialize in plastic surgery procedures.
A total of 10 pounds of excess soft tissue was removed and 3300 cc of excess fat was removed with liposuction. Her stomach muscles were tightened to give her a toned and well exercised look. Her belly button was reshaped and moved to its new position.
Post surgery the patient is in love with her new body. She is now considering a breast augmentation in the near future to complete her make over.
