This patient, in her 30s, has had 3 children, and after the pregnancies, and resulting changes in her body, she would like to restore some contour to her abdomen and hips.
As she 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, and for that to be revised, Tummy Tuck would be a more effective option, combined with Liposuction. The patient was also counseled on what might be possible with Fat Transfer, to reshape the buttock area (Brazilian Butt Lift.)
The patient decided to have the combined procedures; Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction with Fat Transfer for Brazilian Butt Lift. The surgeries were performed 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 removed). A portion of the patient's harvested fat was injected into the buttocks.
The patient is seen 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 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. 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 has come to Dr. Lepore for a Mommy Makeover- the term that's used to describe a variety of customized procedures. In her case, she chooses to have a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift, Removal and Replacement of breast implants, 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.
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 free fat transfer, by transferring some of the excess fat just remove, 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.
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.
Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of surgeries performed to restore pre-pregnancy contours. This patient is in her mid-30s. A mother of 3 children, she was hoping to re-shape some areas that had changed with those pregnancies. Her first questions centered on "Brazilian Butt Lift" or Buttock Enhancement procedures. For buttock enhancement, we can remove fat from unwanted areas, (flanks, abdomen, thighs),and transfer it by injection to other areas, including the buttocks. In this case, our patient had hoped the Liposuction procedure might flatten and tighten her abdomen.
In discussions with Dr. Lepore, she learned that Liposuction alone cannot resolve the stretched muscles and sagging skin that often come with pregnancy. Tummy Tuck surgery does address that. She decided to proceed with the Tummy Tuck, in addition to multiple area Vaser Liposuction, and Free Fat Transfer to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift). She is very pleased with her choices, and with her results.
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.
She decided, after discussion with Dr. Lepore, to undergo the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. 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.
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!
