- Tummy Tuck
This 33-year-old woman was unhappy with the changes her body had undergone after pregnancy, and visited my practice to find out whether a "Mommy Makeover" cosmetic surgery procedure would create the changes she wanted. Specifically, she felt that her breasts were droopy and "deflated" in appearance, and she did not like how loose and wrinkled her abdomen appeared after being stretched during pregnancy.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding cause many mothers to lose a significant amount of breast volume, so for this woman I recommended combining a breast augmentation with a circumareolar mastopexy, which tightens the skin and breast tissues around the areola, without creating the large incision scars of more dramatic lift procedures. To restore a more toned appearance to her abdomen I also recommended a full abdominoplasty.
In her procedure, to achieve the most natural-looking results for her body, I tried a few different sizers before choosing Mentor 375cc smooth, round, moderate-plus profile cohesive silicone gel implants, which I placed below the chest muscles. I also performed a tummy tuck to tighten her abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat from the lower belly. To ensure a more toned appearance and a slimmer waistline, I performed power-assisted liposuction on her flanks.
After surgery, this woman recovered very well, and was extremely happy with her fuller, perkier breasts. She was amazed at how much narrower and more flattering her waistline appeared after her liposuction, and is very pleased at how her abdominal area smoothed and flattened after undergoing her "Mommy Makeover" procedures.
