She is 5'4" and weighs 169 pounds. This is a young woman who was concerned about the fullness in her abdomen. Over the past year or so, she had gained about 15 pounds, but she said that area had always been a problem regardless of her weight. She had started working out frequently with a trainer and running in long races. She wanted the liposuction to be a jumpstart to her fitness routine and provide motivation to get to her ideal body weight. Since she had not had children, and her skin was very elastic she was a good candidate for liposuction of her abdomen.
