After her pregnancy, Jennifer came to Dr. Stephen Hardy for a tummy tuck and liposuction to get rid of her extra loose skin that wouldn’t go away with regular exercise. Jennifer highly recommends Dr. Hardy for anyone because she believes he is a surgeon you can trust, who will make you feel comfortable and safe, and will not try to talk you into anything extra.
MS. JENNIFER ARMSTRONG: I'm Jennifer Armstrong, and I came to Dr. Hardy for a tummy tuck and liposuction. After my two pregnancies, I had a lot of loose skin and fat that no matter what I did, it wasn'tâ€”I couldn't get rid of it. I exercised. I dieted, and I would lose a little bit here and there, but that extra skin and fat was still there. And I really just originally came in for a consultation with Dr. Hardy, and that kind of started me on the path to thinking that it would be okay.
He made me feel really comfortable about it, and from the moment I met him, I knew I could trust him. He just has something about him and a way about him, and he didn't try and talk me into anything. You know, he looked at it, and said that he could do this or he could do that, and gave me all the specifics and facts of how it would feel and what it would be like, and was very up front, honest and didn't try to get me to do anything extra. And I just felt I could really trust him, and everything would be okay.
The procedure went great. No pain, and he was so conscious to try and make sure I wasn't in pain the whole time, and I was awake through it all. And it's made a big difference just in how I feel about myself. You know, I don't look down every day at that extra loose skin, and it just made me feel better. And it made my husband pretty happy. [Laughter]
I had extra fat pockets on either sides of my hips, and on the sides of my legs, and after deciding to do the one, it was so easy that I would do down lower, I guess, and again, same experience. No pain. I was awake during the whole thing.
I had laser liposuction, and it was less traumatic, and I had a really good experience with it. I was up and doing my usual things in really less than two days. I highly recommend Dr. Hardy because you can trust him, and he makes you feel safe, and he's just a really good person and good at what he does.
