This 38 year old gastric bypass patient lost 170 lbs. (pre-op photo weight 190 lbs.), and came to Dr. Tholen for lower body lift (circumferential belt lift) and liposuction of lateral thighs as outpatient surgery in our on-site surgical facility. She had 21.4 lbs. of tissues removed in her outpatient general anesthetic (TIVA) procedure, and went home 1 1/2 hours after surgery--no hospitalization or exposure to sick patients or nasty bacteria. Post-op photo at 6 weeks.
