Her Story

N is a mother of two. She works in the nearby hospital and was referred to me through her friends. She was most concerned about her protuberant belly. She has tried exercises and diet but was unable to reach the body shape she wanted. On evaluation, she had a thick abdominal wall with lots of excess fat. She also had separation of her abdominal muscle from previous pregnancies. To repair both the muscle separation and give her the flat abdomen she wanted, abdominoplasty with a focus on body liposuction was done.

What Was Done?

Dr. Lao is an excellent plastic surgeon, due not only to his surgical skills but also his caring nature. He has to be one of the most attentive doctors I have ever run into, calling me on a regular basis to see how I was feeling. I could not be happier with my abdominoplasty results. I look and feel amazing for the first time in years!

I thought about having an abdominoplasty with lipo of flanks since 2013, after I had my second child. I have been to many consultations and even considering going to Dominican Republic to have my surgery done at a cheaper cost and a more contouring result. When I went for my consultation with you Dr. Lao, I knew right away I wanted you to perform my surgery. Your honest, straightforward approach in explaining the procedure to me and humor, put me at ease. You are the most caring and accommodating Plastic Surgeon I have ever met. Thank you for always being there and answering my questions when I needed you the most. Your understanding allowed me to be comfortable and relaxed on the day of my procedure and after.

I can’t thank you for a superb job and I want to let you know how trilled I am with my results, just after one month. My new look has given me more confidence than ever. My stomach is finally not in the way and I don’t have to buy clothes to fit the additional body fat, I once had. The combination of your medical expertise and artistic talent fascinates me. I hope to one day select a career that is as rewarding as yours. I would recommend you to anyone looking for a great surgeon. Thank you again.
