36 year old patient, Courtney, came to see Dr. Craig Schwartz at Premier Vein & Body to get her pre-pregnancy body back after having her 3rd baby. With a slower metabolism and little free time to hit the gym, Courtney was looking for a non-surgical solution to reduce her belly fat and love handles. After 12 years of focusing all of her time and attention on her children, she decided it was time to take a little bit of time for herself. She wasn’t looking for a “quick fix” as much as a jump-start to motivate her to live a healthier lifestyle. She also wanted to look and feel better.
Courtney knew she didn’t want to go under the knife with a surgical tummy tuck. Because of her busy lifestyle, her ideal solution needed to provide her with the ability to return to her daily routine as soon as possible. Courtney chose Dr. Schwartz to perform her liposuction procedure because of his reputation as an outstanding surgeon with an eye for detail and natural looking results.
Although Premier Vein & Body offers several different types of liposuction, Dr. Schwartz recommended Tickle Lipo (link to Tickle Lipo page) to Courtney, which has become his preferred method of liposuction:
- Performed in-office
- Tumescent anesthesia (not general)
- Larger volumes of fat
- Less trauma
- More comfortable
- Shorter recovery time
Courtney had liposuction on her upper and lower abdomen, love handles, and the little roll of “back fat” under her bra line. She was also interested in having a Brazilian Butt Lift to fix her “no-butt”, and was thrilled when she learned Dr. Schwartz could perform a Brazilian Butt Lift, transferring fat suctioned from her stomach, into her butt, after her liposuction procedures.
Courtney was off pain medication within 24 hours and returned to work Monday, after having her procedure on a Thursday, and is thrilled with her results!
“I expected to have a lot of swelling and not be able to see results so soon. However, once I returned home, I took a picture of myself in the mirror, and it was night and day. The immediate results – the same day, I was looking at a different person. The muffin top was gone. I looked better than I did before I had kids! It was life changing.”
Even with the post-liposuction swelling, she noticed some immediate results and was thrilled when she saw her before and after photos just two months after her procedures. She’s now several months post-procedure, and reports that it has changed her life. While on vacation with her family this summer, she didn’t hide under a t-shirt at the beach as usual, and was thrilled to join her kids in the pool wearing a bikini for the first time in years! Courtney now recommends Tickle Lipo, and Dr. Craig Schwartz, to all of her friends wanting to take charge of their post-baby bodies!
