This Southeast Virginia woman in her mid 30s came to see me in consultation following a successful diet and exercise program in which she lost 100 pounds. Although, she felt healthier and had more energy, she was not happy with the resulting looseness of skin on her stomach, hips and breasts. At the time of her consultation she mentioned how much she was bothered by skin on the sides of her abdomen and hips that hung over her jeans. Because of these concerns, I felt she was a good candidate for an extended abdominoplasty or even buttock thigh lift. She was not interested in the buttock thigh lift because of the more extensive excision on the back side but she did feel that a wider scar on her sides would be an acceptable trade-off for her clothing to fit better. Liposuction on her flanks or sides would still leave the skin on the sides hanging over her jeans and she did not want this problem in front or back. Meticulous planning and care was taken to getting her scars as symmetric as possible so that they could be easily hidden with her undergarment. Therefore, her pre-surgical marking was done with her bathing suit bottom in place so that we could design the scars appropriately. She completed her new look with breast implants to restore some of the volume depleted with her weight loss.

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.
