This 38 year-old Sonoma County woman sought plastic surgery after massive weight loss. She was married at a young age and weighed 120 pounds. Over the course of the years her weight gradually went up until she weighed 270 pounds. At that point, realizing the health hazards of obesity, she had a gradual weight reduction back to her original weight of 120 pounds. After maintaining her new weight for 6 years, she decided to complete the process by removing a lot of the extra skin left behind. She underwent an extended abdominoplasty as well as a thigh lift. During surgery, we removed a very large amount of redundant skin to give her a tighter, more youthful abdomen.
