Patient Story

This young man has an inspiring and uplifting weight loss story. The Emmy award-winning TV show, The Doctors, contacted Dr. Coan for his award-winning expertise in plastic surgery and body contouring. This young man lost over 200 pounds through diet and exercise alone. Before his weight loss, he was extremely depressed. Once he began his weight loss journey, he found that he loved exercising, weight lifting and healthy eating and made these a part of his daily routine. He successfully lost over 225 pounds and became a local celebrity. Dr. Coan met with him and discussed he would benefit from total body contouring, including a lower body lift and male breast reduction. Dr. Coan and his team performed this life changing body makeover pro bono as a gift to help him achieve his dreams. After his procedure, he is ecstatic with his results and loves being able to exercise without excess skin “getting in the way.” He has even run a marathon! He and Dr. Coan recently visited Los Angeles to document his “body contouring reveal” with the Emmy-award winning tv program, The Doctors.

Care Plastic Surgery 5:06 pm

Patient Story

This patient came to CARE Plastic Surgery and Dr. Brian Coan because she desired to feel more proportional after her weight loss surgery. She had often considered having breast augmentation to give her breasts added volume, but after her weight loss she realized she wanted full body contouring. She had successfully lost 85 pounds and Dr. Enochs of the Bariatric Specialists of NC referred her after her Gastric Sleeve in February 2014. She expressed her goals were simply to be able to wear a bathing suit with more confidence, play with her beautiful grandchildren and overall “live a fuller life.” After Dr. Coan’s discussion on body contouring aesthetics and cosmetic evaluation, he advised a lower body lift with liposuction (lipoplasty) and breast augmentation with form stable breast implants (shaped breast implants) would be the best options to help her achieve her aesthetic goals. Today she is incredibly happy post-surgery, loves her new shape and playing with her adorable grandkids!
