After having gastric bypass surgery, Kim came to Dr. Constance Barone in San Antonio for a tummy tuck, liposuction, brachioplasty (arm lift), and toning of her inner thighs. Post bariatric body contouring enabled Kim to be proud of her new body.
I had lost a large amount of weight after gastric bypass and I was told that one year after the bypass you can come in for your tummy tuck so I started with the tummy tuck and lost 15 pounds with the tummy tuck. The scar went almost all the way around my body, that was very exciting so I followed it through with liposuction and the midriff area that took off some more weight. I was in a size 12-14 before that and after those two procedures I went down to size 4-6. I was very happy with that and then I continued to follow it through on the body contouring with my arms. I had excess skin under my arms and the last surgery I did was between my legs, inner thighs and tightened up all that area. After a large amount of weight loss, you are so happy with yourself and pleased with who you are and you still have the sagging skin and that little extra weight so by taking these steps of the body contouring, the tummy tuck, the liposuction and some people might need a breast lift and the arms and legs, I became a new person, very happy with my body, was very excited about buying new clothes. I am finally the person that I wanted to be all these years. With Dr. Barone, she instructed me on what to expect through the outpatient process that we had here and I would recommend her services and her skills to anyone.
