*What a dramatic change for this woman in her 40’s who had lost over 100 lbs. The area of concern for her was her abdomen. She had a fair amount of excess skin which made wearing appropriately sized clothing a challenge and caused rashes in the fold under the skin. She had a very detailed discussion with her experienced surgeon about the best surgical approach for her. The final decision was to use a fleur-de-lis incision; one that removes skin both vertically as well as horizontally. This approach contours the body and slims the waist very nicely. She is now five months out from her procedure and is very happy with her post operative look!
