This 43 year old patient from Riverside County was interested in finding a plastic surgeon in Southern California to help her achieve her results. In 2006, she had gastric bypass surgery and lost 170 pounds. She was very happy with the loss of her weight but was not happy with the hanging skin and hanging breasts. She wanted her breasts lifted and a lot fuller, she wanted an arm lift and an entire upper body lift.

She felt very comfortable with my bed-side manner and extremely comfortable with his surgical experience. I discussed performing these procedures in two steps (to get the best results with minimizing the surgical risk). We both decided to proceed with a 2 stage surgery.
