- Tummy Tuck
This patient is a 38 year old mother who presented to my office with complaints of breast drooping, and stretching out of her abdominal area after pregnancy.
Because this patient was already a C-cup and did not wish to be much larger, I recommended a breast lift surgery. I felt that I would be able to perform this lift using a lollipop scar technique in order to avoid an extra scar under the breast.
With regards to the abdominal region, this patient clearly had lost a tremendous amount of her elasticity due to her multiple pregnancies. I explained that she would need a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with tightening of the abdominal wall, and I also recommended liposuction of the flanks (love handles) and inner and outer thighs.
I performed a "mommy makeover" which included a vertical (lollipop scar) breast lift, a full tummy tuck, and liposuction of the flanks and inner and outer thighs. During surgery, I created a significant lift of the breasts, and tightened the abdominal wall internally by multiple inches, thereby flattening her abdomen and creating a waistline. All of the excess skin between the bellybutton to the upper pubic area was excised and tightened to help with the overall contour of her abdomen.
After surgery, the patient recovered nicely and could not believe how much better her breasts and abdomen looked. .
