Vaser-Assisted Liposuction San Jose.
This is a young woman who had been very conscious of exercising and choosing the proper diet to stay in great shape. Sometimes, though, even with our best efforts, some areas may require a little outside assistance. She had researched Liposuction procedures, and came to Dr. Lepore, wanting to know more about Vaser, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction. She decided to undergo the procedure, having Vaser Liposuction of her thighs and buttocks. As you can see from her before and after photos, she achieved the goals she wanted, and is very pleased with her outcome, and her new contour.
This case is an example of Body Lift in San Jose. This patient is a 35-year Bay Area woman who had worked hard at losing approximately 160 pounds. She wanted a more streamlined appearance, showcasing all of her efforts. She was interested in Body Contouring; and after detailed discussions, she decided to have a number of procedures to achieve her physical goals. They included; abdominoplasty, upper abdominal liposuction, a bilateral breast reduction and thigh lift, a brachioplasty, (also known as dermolipectomy or arm lift), of both arms, as well as a buttock lift. The surgeries performed on this patient represent a good example of the Body Contouring procedures available to those who have undergone gastric bypass surgery, or major weight loss.
Her surgeries were done in several different sessions. With each procedure, a recovery time of 1 to 3 weeks was necessary. The patient is now very happy with her results and her new figure.
Mommy Makeover-San Jose
This 50-year old patient has just achieved a 65lb. weight loss through diet and exercise. She now wants her body appearance to reflect the healthy and fit lifestyle she's adopted. She wanted to resolve issues of sagging, and loose skin left by the weight loss in her breasts, and abdomen. Dr. Lepore explained the various procedures that could address her concerns, including a Breast Lift, and Breast Reduction, along with a Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction. (A combination of procedures designed to reshape multiple areas in women, is often referred to as Mommy Makeover surgery.)
In this case, our patient underwent a Breast Lift, along with a moderate Breast Reduction, an extended Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), and Liposuction of the abdomen and flanks.
She continues her new lifestyle commitment, and is very pleased with the results of her body contouring surgeries.
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 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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
