This patient, in her 30s, has had 3 children. Because of the changes in her body, she would like to restore some contour to her abdomen and hips.
As this patient discussed her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she shared her hope that she might add some roundness to what she described as a 'square butt.' She wondered whether liposuction and fat transfer would accomplish all of her goals. After her examination, Dr. Lepore noted that liposuction would not address the quantity of loose skin in the abdominal area. He recommended a tummy tuck combined with liposuction at his San Jose practice. The patient was also counseled on what might be possible with fat transfer to reshape her buttock area with a procedure called a Brazilian butt lift.
The patient decided to have the following combined procedures: tummy tuck, and liposuction with fat transfer for a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Lepore performed the surgeries together in a single session in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite. During liposuction, fat was removed from the abdomen, flanks, lateral chest area, back, and inner and outer thighs (a total of 1750cc were removed). A portion of the patient's harvested fat was injected into her buttocks.
The patient is shown in the "after" photos, 10 weeks following surgery. She is very pleased, and feels the combined procedures have given her the results she hoped for.
This young woman was troubled by her inability to reshape her body through diet and exercise. Despite her own efforts she was unable to get rid of pockets of fat in her abdomen, flanks, and inner thighs. She also complained of what she considered a 'flat butt,' She came to Dr. Lepore, hoping that she might re-purpose some of her excess fat, in the form of a Brazilian Butt Lift.
In our AAAASF-accredited Surgical Facility, Dr. Lepore performed Liposuction on her abdomen, flanks and inner thighs. He then performed a Brazilian Butt Lift, with fat transfer, by transferring some of the excess fat just removed, into her buttocks. In this case, approximately 600 cc of fat were injected into each buttock.
Our patient is seen in the photos, 7 weeks post-operatively. She is very pleased with her results, and her new Body Contour.
This young woman (early 30s) has decided she would like some body contouring. Although not really overweight, she feels her body shape is more “square” than she would like, and she is having some difficulty with fat distribution in her chest, back, flanks, and thighs.
She would like to have some of this excess fat removed, and re-purposed. She is hoping to enhance the shape of her buttocks, for a more rounded, proportional contour, while slimming some of the other areas.
After discussion with Dr. Lepore, she decided to undergo the Brazilian butt lift procedure at his San Jose practice. This type of buttock augmentation or enhancement, begins with liposuction. It’s actually 2 procedures performed in the same session. Dr. Lepore removed approximately 2300cc of fat from the multiple areas mentioned above, and after processing the fat, injected almost half that amount into her buttocks, where it was shaped carefully.
Our patient is very happy with the results, enjoying the slimmer appearance of her abdomen, waistline, and thighs – as well as the new, more accentuated curve of her buttocks.
San Jose-Brazilian Butt Lift, Liposuction
This woman is in her early 40s, and although relatively thin and fit, she came to Dr. Lepore because she was bothered by some extra areas of subcutaneous fat. Like many women, she's having difficulty 'exercising away' the fat distribution in her abdomen, flanks, and inner thighs.
She wanted the bothersome fat removed through Liposuction. Dr. Lepore discussed her various options, and was able to give her the news she wished to hear about re-using some of her own extra fat, to enhance her buttocks. She underwent Liposuction surgery in our on-site surgical suite, and during the same session, had a Brazilian Butt Lift. A total of 2250cc of fat was removed, and in the Buttock Augmentation procedure, 575cc of the patient's fat were added to each buttock. Our patient is very pleased with her surgery results, and the new contour of her abdomen and buttocks.
This patient was bothered by the appearance of her abdomen following 3 pregnancies. She came to our San Jose Plastic Surgery office to discuss Tummy Tuck surgery, along with some other refinements. She wanted some help in removing areas of extra fat over her abdomen, flanks, and 'bra roll.' She hoped the excess fat could be used to help add some dimension to her buttocks.
After discussing her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she decided to undergo an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Liposuction of the above-mentioned areas, and Fat Transfer to her buttocks in a Brazilian Butt Lift (buttock augmentation) procedure. In her case, 1250cc of the patient's fat was used to augment the buttocks.
She is seen in the after photos, 2 months following her procedures. She is very pleased with her results.
Abdominoplasty and Buttock Augmentation/Lift
This patient, in her mid 40s, is progressing through her weight loss journey. She has had gastric sleeve surgery, and has lost over 80 pounds. The weight loss has left a significant and uncomfortable amount of sagging skin and tissue over her abdomen and sides. She is hoping to address several areas of concern. Dr. Lepore explained that several surgical sessions would be necessary. The first, would address her main area of concern, her abdomen and sides.
She decided to undergo an extended abdominoplasty, with a midline resection of her loose skin. During this procedure, differing amounts of skin and tissue were removed from each side, the skin, and underlying tissue then tailored.
In a separate surgical session, several months later, our patient wished to have excess fat removed through Liposuction, and wanted the fat transferred, in a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, to enhance and shape her buttocks.
She had Liposuction of her flanks, upper and lower abdomen, and back. The patient's fat was then injected into the buttocks. She is very pleased with the results of her body-shaping procedures. As she continues her health and fitness journey, she is investigating further refinements, as she reaches her goals.
This patient began her 'mommy makeover' revisions some time ago. Now in her late 40s, she decided to regain her abdominal contour over 10 years ago, with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction. Her results are well-maintained, but now she has come back for additional re-contouring.
She wanted to add more shape to her buttocks, which she described as square and flat. And, she wished to have some additional fat removed through Liposuction. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure addresses both concerns; through liposuction, and then transfer of fat to the buttocks and pelvic frame. In her case, after liposuction of multiple areas, a total of 2600cc of fat was available for re-injection; (1300cc into each side of her pelvic frame, and buttocks.)
In the After photos; she is 6 weeks post-op for BBL, and more than 10 years after Tummy Tuck.
She's very pleased with her choices and the results of her procedures.
Congratulations to this young mom- who has given birth to triplets, by C-section. An amazing process. Afterward, she felt she needed some help, in her efforts to regain some of her former physical appearance. Over an extended period, she underwent several procedures, in what's known as a Mommy Makeover.
In her case, she wanted to address her abdominal area, undergoing an extended abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), with repair of stretched and damaged muscles. Following that surgery, she returned for surgeries in other areas; Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Liposuction of multiple areas, and a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure (the liposuctioned fat is used to augment the buttocks and pelvic frame).
The After photos were taken 2 months following her final procedures. She is very pleased with her restored look. (Good luck with your beautiful family!)
This young woman has been working hard on a weight reduction plan- with a recent loss of 70 lbs. She wanted some help with fat reduction in stubborn areas, and also wished to emphasize her own efforts, with some body contouring.
Dr. Lepore performed Liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen, flanks, chest, and back. He then performed Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL) to give her the shaping she wanted. The patient's own harvested fat was injected into each buttock, and pelvic frame.
She is seen 2 months following her procedures, very pleased with her new re-shaping, as she continues with her health and fitness journey.
