This 27-year-old woman was unhappy with her hips and thighs and wanted a smoother-looking silhouette. She began researching plastic surgery in Columbia and was impressed with Dr. Chang's credentials. After seeing that he offered a variety of body-contouring procedures, she scheduled a consultation.
Her meeting with Dr. Chang was very helpful and informative. He listened as she explained what she wanted from surgery. She said she did not like the rippling in her hips and thighs and wanted to have a sleeker shape. Dr. Chang performed a physical evaluation and determined that she would benefit most from Smartlipo™ liposuction in Columbia. He explained that Smartlipo is a form of laser-assisted liposuction that is faster and more powerful than most traditional liposuction techniques. Plus, Smartlipo helps promote skin contraction for a smoother look. She was happy with Dr. Chang's recommendation and scheduled an appointment for surgery.
Her Smartlipo procedure was performed in the office with a local anesthetic. Because Smartlipo laser technology reduces bleeding, swelling and bruising, there was minimal downtime after her procedure. She was advised to rest for 2 or 3 days, but she was able to go home the same day.
She is pictured here 5 months after the surgery. The rippled appearance of her hips and thighs is dramatically reduced, and she is enjoying a more proportional and attractive body shape. She is very happy with her Smartlipo procedure and with Dr. Chang.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
