This patient chose more than one procedure to produce her desired result; breast augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift in San Jose.
This is a patient who had undergone a breast augmentation several years earlier, and was now interested in moving to a larger size than her original choice. After consulting with Dr. Lepore, she made a decision to have new, high-profile saline implants. And in addition, she chose to undergo liposuction of the abdomen and flanks. She also wanted to explore the possibility of fat injections to augment her buttocks. It was determined that she was a good candidate for all the procedures she chose.
During surgery in our fully-accredited operating suite, her original implants were removed and replaced, liposuction was performed, and hew own fat injected into the buttocks. The patient healed well, and is very pleased with her new contours.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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, 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.
Breast Enhancement - This is a 30 year old woman. She came to our San Jose Plastic Surgery office, interested in increasing the size of her breasts, but also wanted to see if she could benefit from some body contouring. She chose to have San Jose breast augmentation and liposuction of the flanks. She started with a B cup. We used a 380 cc implant to achieve the result she wanted. The liposuction also whittled her waistline, and improved her overall contour. The surgery was performed on an outpatient basis in our fully-accredited, certified outpatient surgical center.
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.
