Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Liposuction is not a procedure recommended for weight loss. It can be an aid to a patient involved in - or starting - a health and fitness program. One of Dr. Lepore's most-often repeated phrases is: "No surgery is a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise regimen." That's part of this patient's journey. In her 30s, she's in the process of losing excess weight, and has some areas that she's hoping can be addressed with liposuction at our San Jose practice.
During her surgery, liposuction was performed on the patient's upper and lower abdomen, flanks, and lateral chest area. In all, 3350cc were removed. Her 'after' photos, taken 7 weeks post surgery, show a considerable difference in her body contour. She is very happy with the outcome of her surgery, and continues her diet and exercise program.
