Tummy Liposuction After Kids – A Patient’s Story

“Recovery was quick and I did not miss a game or a meeting.”

Her Laser Body Shaping: Laser Liposuction of the Abdomen

How do you feel about yourself now that you’ve had plastic surgery?
I feel wonderful. I never dreamed that I could have a flat tummy again.

What did you want to change about yourself that made you consider plastic surgery?
After having two kids, I continued to feel like I looked pregnant. Dieting and crunches just did not work. I really wanted to get rid of that pregnancy pooch. 

How did you hear about Galumbeck Plastic Surgery?
My son’s kindergarten teacher had eyelid surgery at Galumbeck Plastic Surgery.
When I commented on how good she looked one day, she told me about her procedure with Dr. Galumbeck. She highly recommended him.

How would you describe your lifestyle?
Very active. I played soccer in high school and coach my son’s team now. I work part-time in sales so I want to look my best. My husband and I are very involved in our church’s youth group. I enjoy mentoring the high school students. My mom has some health problems so I spend quite a bit of time helping her as well. 

What procedures did Dr. Galumbeck suggest to you? Which did he perform? 
I had done a good bit of research before my consultation. I was not sure if liposuction alone would help me or if I needed a tummy tuck. I was very happy when Dr. Galumbeck felt that tummy liposuction alone would solve my problem. He discussed that my skin tone was good. He felt that after removing the extra fat, my stomach skin would tighten. So, I chose laser liposuction.

Did you feel that you had options, and a voice in your plastic surgery?
I felt that Dr. Galumbeck listened to my concerns and I felt confident in his recommendation for my surgery.

What concerns did you have about your surgery?
Mainly, I was concerned about recovery time and if I could have surgery and still keep my commitments. Luckily, recovery was quick and I did not miss a soccer game or youth group meeting.

Would you do it again?
To have a flat tummy? Of course!
