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.
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!
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 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.
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.
Here's a patient who came to us after several pregnancies. She wanted to restore a more defined look to her abdomen and back. After undergoing a full Tummy Tuck, our patient also had Liposuction to remove excess fat from multiple areas; including her abdomen, flanks, and back. To help sculpt, and complete her body contouring, Dr. Bates used Vaser ultrasound liposuction, as well as Renuvion plasma energy- which helps improve skin tightening. The results, 2 months following surgery, show a much more sculpted and sleek contour, in addition to the improvement produced by her tummy tuck.
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.
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.
