This healthy 42-year-old woman began researching liposuction at the Columbia plastic surgery practice of Dr. Eric Chang when she became frustrated with localized weight gain around her abdomen and thighs. Despite adhering to a healthy lifestyle, this patient had difficulty reducing this fat through her normal diet and exercise habits.
During her consultation, Dr. Chang asked the patient many questions in order to accurately assess her lifestyle and her medical history. Together, they determined that laser-assisted Smartlipo MPX™ was an ideal match for her body and her goals. Dr. Chang performed Smartlipo on the patient’s lower abdomen, flanks, and lateral thighs.
In the after photos, taken 4 months after surgery, the patient’s natural shape is smoother and more refined. Her abdominal bulges are reduced, and her thighs are smoother and better contoured. Her new curves complement the rest of her body, and her small scars aren’t visible.
