Abby came to us in 2014, at a time when she says “I was tired of feeling bad about my body and I knew that diet and exercise wouldn’t get me to where I wanted because of my abdominal diastasis.” Many women that have had children have some form of abdominal diastasis, which is a separation between the abdominal muscles that cannot be fixed with exercise. Dr. Barone’s reputation and the photos of other women that had had similar procedures by him ultimately led Abby to our practice and helped her make the decision that he would be her surgeon.
During her consultation, Dr. Barone and Abby decided on a procedure that we refer to as a “3 position” body lift. The 3 Position Body Lift was actually developed by Dr. barone and not only corrects the abdominal muscle diastasis and skin/fat excess on the front of the body, but also contours, lifts, tightens and shapes the sides of the body, hips and buttocks. She states that people think she’s lost 40 pounds because of Dr. Barone’s technique, but really she is about 10 pounds lighter. “I feel much more confident in my body.”
For those considering cosmetic improvement, Abby shares “if you are tired of feeling bad about something that only surgery can change, go ahead. You can trust Dr. Barone’s surgical skills, and the follow up care that the staff gives is excellent.”
