Today’s is a great example of body contouring after massive weight loss.
Dr. Lynch’s patient worked hard to lose weight and knew she’d need plastic surgery to get the final results she desired. Read more about her journey in her words here…
Patient – “I spent my life obese, from childhood. I couldn’t take my 3 year old daughter on the bumper cars because I couldn’t fit. I decided that day I would have gastric sleeve surgery because I wasn’t going to lose out on my kids’ lives. I had gastric sleeve in ‘16. My highest weight was 334, my weight before gastric sleeve was 317. With the sleeve and hard work, I lost 130 lbs. Then, I started looking into plastics. I was so happy with my weight loss, but my body no longer served me – it wasn’t who I was now: someone with confidence, who found a new love for life and for herself and who was encouraging others through the sleeve surgery as well. For two years, I did research, watched videos and saw Dr. Lynch 3 times – ha! I saved my money and set my date!”
“I went into my surgery ready to roll with a big smile on my face! I was so excited. I woke up from surgery with what I describe as muscle pain and feeling like I just completed 1000 crunches. Other than that, I didn’t have pain. I never once took a pain pill and only took a couple muscle relaxers with the surgery. I’m 2 weeks out and I feel almost completely normal. It’s hard to express what this surgery has meant to me.”
“I cry every time I look at my first ever flat tummy! Because this is what I’ve worked my A*@ off for. This is who I have been on the inside and now it’s showing on the out! I am counting down the days to May 4th when I have my brachioplasty with Dr. Lynch! Thank you Plastic Surgeons of Lexington for helping me show the world the new me!”
