Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This is a 34 year old mother who wanted to improve her waistline and flatten her tummy at the same time. We performed liposuction of the flank area and a full tummy tuck using sedation instead of General Anesthesia. She did very well postoperatively and was pleased that she could wear more stylish clothing within about six weeks of the procedure. Of course, full recovery and elimination of swelling is more like a 3- 4 month process, but this patient was back at work in 12 days.
