Tummy Tuck New Jersey Patient Bridgette Discovers Strength in Her New Body
As a 37-year old mother of two, Bridgette felt her body never fully recovered after two back-to-back
pregnancies. Bridgette is a petite, 5’2” woman who gained a lot of weight carrying two 10 lb. babies.
“Even when I got back to my pre-pregnancy weight, my body just was not the same. My abdomen was
really distended, and I had a lot of extra skin. I’m a runner, but I could have run 24/7 and never gotten
rid of my abdomen,” explained Bridgette.

Dr. Paul M. Parker of Parker Center for Plastic Surgery Supports ASPS Warning on Medical Tourism
Recently the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released a video warning plastic surgery patients
about the potential dangers of traveling abroad for cosmetic procedures. Patients should be aware of
the fact that foreign countries have a significantly different standard of care than the United States
“Medical tourism is the complete reverse of the traditional medical model of patients traveling from
developing countries to the United States or Western Europe to seek out the best medical care. In this
situation you have Americans traveling to these lesser known locations to combine some R&R with their
medical procedure, usually at a substantially lower price,” said Dr. Parker.

Patient Safety: Check your surgeon, do your research
In October, a Florida woman visited a spa to get vitamin injections. She left with a disfigured face that eventually took five surgeries to correct.
In Mississippi, another tragedy occurred when a woman underwent a buttock injection thought to help remove excess weight. A blood clot emerged, and she died. The medical examiner that performed the autopsy said that in order to save her life, the victim’s buttocks would have to be removed down to the bone. “Brain surgery would have been less invasive,” according to the affidavit.
In fact, reports from Las Vegas to Philadelphia have surfaced that document similar tragic circumstances.

Mohs Reconstruction for Lanie Yields Exceptional Results
Lanie is a patient of Dr. Parker’s who has been treated for skin cancer in 2004, 2008 and most recently in October 2012. The last diagnosis required a Mohs procedure that excised two spots approximately “dime-sized” on the right side of her face.
“I originally told the Mohs surgeon to just sew it up, but he said no this is on your face and you need a plastic surgeon. I went to Dr. Parker because I knew him and trusted him implicitly. When I had skin cancer in 2008, he did the reconstruction. The resulting scar is virtually invisible. It’s amazing! I’ve shown everyone,” said Lanie.
