During your consultation with Dr. Franco-Webb, she will listen to your goals. There will probably be multiple areas that you are interested in having corrected. Typically, a patient’s abdomen and back are addressed first. Depending on the length of time for each procedure, more than one procedure can be performed at the same time (see Overview below).
If a patient has mostly skin sagging, excess fat and muscle laxity of her abdomen with some fatty tissue but mild skin looseness of her back, then it is recommended that she undergo an abdominoplasty (see Tummy Tucks) and liposuction of her flanks (see Images 1, 2, and 3). Also, do take notice that the sagging of the pubic region is always corrected by Dr. Franco-Webb, as evidenced by her before and after photos.
If a patient has a substantial amount of loose skin of her back, buttock and lateral thighs in addition to excess skin, fat, and muscle laxity of her abdomen, then Dr. Franco-Webb will probably recommend a Lower Body Lift procedure.
