Three months ago I performed a liposuction treatment on young Annie, 35, who was feeling that her belly was fulller than she deserved and her hips were somewhhat box-shaped.
So we performed liposuction on abdomen and love handles. It all went well.
Yesterday she came back into the prractice for final review, and it was great to see that she was 3kg lighter and looking much more shapely and feeling much more confident.
The liposuction, it turned out, had given her more confidence that she could go to the gym and do her part to maintain the shape she wanted. So she had been working out and taking a new pride in herself, and that showed not only on her abdomen but also in her demeanour and evident life-energy.
Liposuction is no substitute for exercise, but often inspires patients to do more exercise not less.
Not an end, but a new beginning
