Complex Breast Revision
This 35-year-old woman came to my practice because she was interested in revision breast surgery and Mommy Makeover surgery. She had undergone prior breast augmentation by another surgeon and was dissatisfied with her results. She was also unhappy with the appearance of her abdomen after having children.
For this patient, I recommended exchanging her saline implants for smaller silicone implants, in addition to internal pocket tightening and a circumareolar (around the areola) breast tightening to improve shape and symmetry. I also recommended a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with tightening of the abdominal muscles and liposuction of the flanks (love handles).
I performed a Mommy Makeover that included revision breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction of the flanks. In the operating room, I exchanged this patient's overfilled saline implants (475cc overfilled to 550cc) for new Mentor cohesive silicone gel 450cc moderate plus profile implants. I also performed a circumareolar mastopexy (breast lift) that included internal pocket tightening. To address the patient's concerns about her abdomen, I performed a tummy tuck with liposuction of the flanks (love handles) to contour her waist.
Most of the Mommy Makeover procedures I perform in Santa Monica include breast enhancement surgery, along with a tummy tuck and liposuction. My patients enjoy feeling confident about their bodies again after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
