Case Study 4
Surgeon: Dr. Howard Silverman | Age: | Gender: Female
This patient is 5’4″, 155 lbs, mother of 2, who seeks to enhance her abdominal, hip and flank contour after her pregnancies and weight loss of 65 lbs. There is laxity of skin and moderate excess fatty tissue throughout the upper and lower abdomen and hips/flanks, moderate separation of the abdominal muscles.
She underwent an abdominoplasty, removing 900 cc of fatty tissue through liposuction, and 1830 gm of excess skin and fatty tissue of the abdomen through direct surgical excision, resulting in an aesthetic and smooth abdominal and hips contour that is consistent with the rest of her body contour, giving her a beautiful silhouette.
