- Tummy Tuck
This patient is a 45 year old female who came to my medical office with concerns about her body appearance after having children. This patient wished to have perkier, fuller and more symmetrical breasts, and also wanted contouring of her abdomen and torso.
I felt that this patient would be a great candidate for a "Mommy Makeover" surgery including breast augmentation with a breast lift, a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with tightening of the abdominal muscles, and liposuction of the love handles.
In surgery, I used Mentor smooth, round cohesive silicone gel implants. Due to a severe pre-existing size and shape asymmetry, I had to use a 350cc high profile implant on the right and a 200cc moderate-plus profile implant on the left for the best size match. I also performed a vertical incision (lollipop-scar) breast lift to reshape the breasts.
After this, I performed a full tummy-tuck with the removal of over 2 pounds of skin and fat. I also removed approximately 315cc of fat from each flank with power assisted liposuction.
After surgery, the patient recovered nicely and she was extremely pleased with her new shape. She felt much more confident in bathing suits and fit more easily into a variety of clothes.
