This woman in her early fifties from North Carolina underwent gastric bypass may years ago and lost a very large amount of weight.  She first came to me for a consultation five years ago because she wanted  an abdominoplasty to address the large amount of sagging skin which often caused a rash beneath it.  Unfortunately, we could not perform her tummy tuck at that time because our extensive preoperative testing revealed that her protein level was not adequate for safe healing.  With some medical and dietary changes, she was able to improve her protein level to an excellent range.  Five years after our initial discussion, she safely underwent abdominoplasty with no muscle tightening  She had 8.2 pounds of skin and fat removed, as well as liposuction of the mons area.  Despite the significant amount of excess skin, we were able to design her scar to be easily concealed.  She is very happy with the results.  More importantly, she realizes that although she did not want to delay her procedure, it was the safest plan for her.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
