This 37-year-old mother scheduled a consultation with Dr. Piazza to remove loose, excess skin from her abdomen and stubborn excess fat from her love handles and thighs. In her consultation, she noted that most of these problem areas had developed after she had children. She committed to a workout regimen, and through a disciplined diet she lost 100 pounds. However, the end result of her weight loss had its unfortunate side, leaving excess skin that no amount of diet or exercise could affect.
Dr. Piazza felt this patient would be an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck and power-assisted liposuction of the flanks and thighs at our Austin practice. It is very important to Dr. Piazza that his patients have a clear idea of what kind of results they should anticipate from their procedure. During her consultation at The Piazza Center, he explained that she could expect to see her abdomen dramatically flatten and take on a new contour through this surgery, while her thighs would show more modest improvements.
A full abdominoplasty procedure was performed with muscle tightening, in conjunction with power-assisted liposuction of the flanks and outer thighs. The patient recovered very well from her surgical procedure and could not have been happier with the significant improvements she achieved.
Her abdominal area is now much firmer and smoother, and her entire body appears slimmer and healthier. These improvements have motivated her to work even harder at her exercise routine, and she continues to get in better and better shape.
Provider: Dr. Rocco C. Piazza, M.D., FACS
