Procedure :Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction
Treatment performed by consultant plastic surgeon Mr Baljit Dheansa
Aimee applied to be on Embarrassing Bodies after seeing former patient Lynsey have a tummy tuck and liposuction on her mons pubis area. Prior to seeing this Aimee had not seen anything around her problem before on the TV.
Aimee’s weight gain began during her pregnancies. She was very sick throughout and eating small but frequent helpings of food helped to settle her stomach. However it also led to her becoming 19 stone. She couldn’t exercise during her pregnancies either as she suffered from haemorrhoids and rheumatoid arthritis which only compounded the problem of her weight.
Through diet plans and circuit training/boxing once her babies were born she managed to lose the weight and got down to 10 stone/size 12. However her mons pubis area remained swollen and no amount of exercise or diet would shift the weight from this area.
In October 2011, Aimee was seen by consultant plastic surgeon Mr Baljit Dheansa for surgery through the TV Show Embarrassing Bodies with Dr Christain Jessen, Dr Pixie and Dr Dawn. The day following her surgery she sat up in bed, she looked down and with a huge smile on her face said “I feel uplifted”. Absolute delight was shining through and she couldn’t wait to get home and put on some jeans!
