Mary Jane Garcia is a certified registered nurse and anesthetist, and she recently had Part 1 of her Mommy Makeover completed at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center in Edinburg. The Mommy Makeover included an abdominal plasty, or tummy tuck, as well as Vaser liposuction to her outer thighs, upper back, and flank (lower back) area. Lastly, she had BodyTite™ done to her arms and upper back. Dr. Filiberto Rodriguez uses a devices that shrinks skin — the loose skin that you have after you’ve gained weight and lost weight. BodyTite™also helps to melt the fat, which makes it easier for the liposuction to be more effective.
“I chose Dr. Rodriguez because of how he operates,” Garcia said. “It’s like a symphony. He’s very precise; he’s very meticulous. He’s like an artist. And he’s Type A — he wants to make sure that it’s right. He uses quality material. His staff is top of their game. All of them have 10, 20 years of experience in the operating room, and that’s what makes me and every patient feel safe when they come here.”
This kind of surgery takes a long time to complete, so patient safety while under anesthesia for that long can become a concern.
