This 35 year old women came to Dr. Chang for Consultation regarding body contouring. She had maintained a steady weight , she did go up to 150 pounds during pregnancy. She explained during her consultation “I don’t want to be a skinny girl with a big tummy”.
Her abdomen showed a mild to moderate amount of lipodystrophy. Her main problem area is her muscle laxity and her skin is in good shape given the patients pregnancies. Dr. Chang suggested an abdominoplasty, not for the skin issues but more for the muscle issues. She has a round abdomen simply because of the loss of abdominal strength from her pregnancies. Dr Chang explained to her that liposuction alone wouldn’t fix the problem. There is some need for liposuction of the upper abdominal flap as well as the flanks. She was interested in a breast lift. Dr. Chang suggested a vertical breast lift with a reduction component as well would give patient a very nice end result. She would like to go down from a middle C to a small C. She is also unhappy about the upper lateral aspect of the breast which can be liposuctioned at the same time.
