This woman came to my practice because she had multiple concerns. Her large breasts were causing back and shoulder pain. She wanted to improve the appearance of her abdominal area including the large abdominal scar from a non-elective surgery performed by another surgeon. She also wanted to reshape her flanks and thighs.
I performed a Mommy Makeover that included breast reduction with a vertical incision; a complete tummy tuck to tighten her abdominal muscles, remove the old surgical scar, and reshape her belly button; and liposuction of the bra fat, flanks, and both the inner and outer thighs.
After a successful recovery, the patient was extremely happy with her improved appearance. Furthermore, she had complete relief of her back and shoulder pain with the breast lift and reduction.
Because I can reshape the breasts, abdominal area, and areas of excess fat in a single surgery, many Santa Monica women come to my practice for Mommy Makeover surgery.
