Liposuction Case #3156 Gallery
This 52-year-old woman wanted to have a more distinct hourglass figure and to flatten and smooth her stomach and legs. She came to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Los Angeles for liposuction and a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, to remove the excess fatty deposits on her legs and mid-section.
She underwent power-assisted liposuction to make her body to the proportion she wanted. With power-assisted liposuction, or PAL, an electric motor agitates the liposuction tool to make the procedure easier and quicker for the surgeon. In combination with her tummy tuck, where excess skin is removed and the muscles underneath are often tightened, her surgeon was able to achieve a dramatic improvement in her shape.
The "after" photos show exactly how dramatic the change is. Now, she finally has a more hourglass figure and her stomach is flatter and even. Her legs are also more even where the fatty deposits on her thighs were removed. Overall, she is very pleased with the results of her Los Angeles plastic surgery.
