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-Tummy Tuck
This 38-year old woman has undergone a combination of body contouring procedures to achieve her cosmetic goals.
She has lost 80 lbs. through a diet and exercise program, a great accomplishment. She was disturbed, though, by the effects of the weight loss on her appearance; sagging skin and tissue in her abdomen, flanks, and thighs, as well as sagging breasts.
She is shown in the After photos, about 2 and a half months after her procedures. She is very pleased with her results, and feels her new body contour now matches the effort she has made in her health and fitness program.
Face Lift and Neck Lift –San Jose
Men and women in Silicon Valley are interested in Face Lift and Neck Lift surgery. This patient came to our San Jose Plastic Surgery office, concerned about some of the changes that naturally come with aging. They include changes in the skin’s elasticity, and the way fat is distributed. These changes are different for all of us.
In his case, the concerns centered on loosening skin in the mid and lower face, and the fat distribution in the central neck area. Both of these are very common changes. He discussed the various options for facial rejuvenation with Dr. Lepore, and decided to have a mid-face lift procedure, and a neck lift with Vaser-assisted tumescent liposuction of the neck. Less than two weeks after the surgery, the sutures were removed, and even the initial results were obvious. The ‘After’ photos, taken several weeks later, show the improvement in the contour of the lower face area, and the significant definition achieved in the neck, chin, and jaw area. The patient continues his post-surgical care program, and is very pleased with his results.
This woman, in her early 50s, had recently lost a significant amount of weight (over 60 pounds). She came to Dr. Vincent Lepore seeking help to remove some of the excess skin and fat remaining on her stomach, hips, and flank areas. Dr. Lepore recommened an extended tummy tuck, in which a larger area of skin, fat, and muscle could be addressed that with a traditional tummy tuck. In addition, he recommended liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and flanks.
Our patient is very pleased with the outcome of her procedures and her new body contours, as she continues her diet and exercise program.
This 54-year-old woman had a C-section 20 years ago. She had a long painful scar and was very unhappy with the general appearance of her stomach. She visited Dr. Vincent Lepore for a Mommy Makeover consultation in San Jose. (You don't need to be a new mommy to benefit from a Mommy Makeover.)
Dr. Lepore performed a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin and the scar. He also performed liposuction of the upper mid-abdomen and flanks to further shape the patient's midriff area. The procedures gave her the look she has wanted for decades. She's very happy with her result.
This young woman, in her 20s, leads a healthy lifestyle and has recently achieved a weight loss of more than 15 pounds. As often happens, she's been having some difficulty reducing and reshaping some "target" areas. When we gain or lose weight, it doesn't always distribute evently, or go where we'd like.
She wanted to discuss her reshaping options with Dr. Lepore. She had goals of increasing her breast size, and removing some of the excess fat in her abdomen, sides (flanks), and inner thighs. She decided to undergo Breast Augmentation surgery, along with Liposuction of multiple areas.
The procedures were performed in one session, in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite. During surgery, our patient underwent a transaxillary, subpectoral Breast Augmentation. She chose 360cc silicone gel implants - (smooth, round, moderate profile).
The areas liposuctioned, included her upper and lower abdomen, right and left flanks, and both inner thighs. A total of 3,375cc of fat was removed from all areas.
The After photos were taken 8 weeks following surgery. Our patient says she is extremely pleased with her results, and her new body contour.
This 40-year-old Bay Area woman wanted to regain her pre-pregnancy figure, so she visited Dr. Vincent Lepore for a Mommy Makeover consultation in San Jose.
Dr. Lepore performed an abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, to tighten up the muscles stretched and loosened by childbearing. He also performed liposuction of the upper abdomen and flanks.
The patient recovered in 2 weeks and is very happy with her smaller waistline.
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 44-year-old woman came to Dr. Lepore to explore a variety of procedures performed together, which is commonly a Mommy Makeover. She wanted to change some of the shrinkage and the sagging appearance that her breasts took on after pregnancy. She also had significant stretching and relaxing of her abdominal wall, and therefore was interested in abdominal enhancement with liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Dr. Lepore performed a Mommy Makeover to address all of the patient's concerns in a single surgery. She underwent a subglandular breast augmentation and in her case it was determined she would benefit from a breast lift with the donut incision technique. She also underwent tummy tuck with liposuction of the upper mid abdomen and flanks for further body contouring.The procedures were performed together. The patient recovered within 2 weeks of the surgeries, and was very happy with the outcome, and the dramatic change in her new look.
This young woman presents another example of the beautiful results that can be achieved through Tummy Tuck and Liposuction surgery. This San Jose Tummy Tuck was performed in our fully-accredited surgical facility. In addition to the muscle tightening and tissue removal of the abdominoplasty itself, this patient decided to have a little more refinement, with the addition of Liposuction to her upper middle abdomen, and flanks. She is very pleased with her results!
