San Jose, CA 95124
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.
Brazilian Butt Lift-San Jose
This young woman, in her early 30s, is in very good shape, following four pregnancies. But, she felt she could use some surgical help, in reshaping some areas. She had always been bothered by what she described as a 'square' appearance of her buttocks, which was being emphasized by a moderate amount of extra fat, throughout her torso and flanks.
After discussing her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she decided to proceed with a so-called Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL. This procedure re-shapes the buttocks and pelvic frame, through fat grafting.
During the Liposuction phase of the surgery, about 2500cc of fat was removed from multiple areas; abdomen, flanks, back, and under the arms. About half of the harvested fat was available for reinjection, into the buttocks and her pelvic frame. Some unevenness in the size of the buttocks was also corrected. In the After photos, approximately 2 months post-surgery, you can see the difference in overall shape, with waist definition, a new contour to the hips, and a more rounded appearance of the buttocks.
Our patient is very pleased with her results.
This woman, in her late 30s, has had several pregnancies, and C-sections. She felt she could use some help in removing excess fat in her abdomen, flanks, and thighs. And, she hoped she could have some improvements in shaping her buttocks, and waist.
Brazilian Butt Lift involves Liposuction to remove excess fat. In a procedure known as Fat Transfer, (free fat transfer, fat grafting), the patient's own fat is processed and re-inserted into areas the patient wants "filled." In this case, she hoped to re-shape a 'V'-shaped butt, into a more rounded, proportional contour.
During surgery, a total of 2600cc of fat was removed from the multiple areas. leaving about 2000cc suitable for injecting into the buttocks. Differing amounts were added to each buttock, to even out, and add contour. Our patient is seen 8 weeks after her procedure. She is very pleased, and happily reports that she has dropped 3 dress sizes!
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.
This woman, in her late 30s, has noted a number of changes to her body, following two pregnancies, and child-rearing. She reports weight gain, stretching of her abdomen, and sagging of her breasts. When she met with Dr. Lepore in San Jose, she told him she had had a breast augmentation prior to the birth of her children, and now wishes to have her previous breast implants, removed and replaced.
To address all of her concerns, she is interested in a Mommy Makeover- the term that's used to describe a variety of customized procedures. In her case, she choose to have a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast implant exchange, liposuction, and, for an added "lift" - she decides that she would like to use some of her own liposuctioned fat for a "Brazilian butt lift." In this procedure, the fat is transferred to the buttocks, for a smoother, rounder, enhanced contour.
The results - a true Mommy Makeover. Our patient is very pleased with the outcome of all of her individualized procedures.
Liposuction & Brazilian Butt Lift
This patient, in her late 30s, has had previous surgeries (with another physician), a tummy tuck, and liposuction. Now, years later, she is bothered by changes in the appearance of her abdomen, and hopes to improve her overall contour. In discussions with Dr. Lepore, it was determined that she could undergo additional Liposuction to address some of her concerns. She also wanted to reshape what she felt was a square appearance of her buttocks. To address that area, she would also undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, in which the liposuctioned fat is used to enhance and shape the buttocks.
She had liposuction of the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, lateral chest, back, and inner thighs. Approximately 1450cc of the patient's fat was used to enhance the buttocks.
She is seen 8 weeks following her procedures, and is very pleased with her results, and her changed contours.
