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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Like many patients seeking liposuction, this woman came to see San Jose plastic surgeon Dr. Vincent Lepore with a number of questions. At 36 years old, she exercised regularly and watched her diet. But she was frustrated that she was not able to shed fat from several areas, including her upper and lower abdomen, flanks, thighs and knees.
Dr. Lepore discussed the options for liposuction surgery in detail and ultimately the patient decided to undergo VASER Lipo® liposuction surgery. Using ultrasonic energy, VASER Lipo helps disrupt and liquefy fat cells without damaging surrounding blood vessels. The ultrasound also aids in removing more fat with less bruising, and even helps tighten the surrounding skin.
This patient underwent the procedure in our fully-accredited San Jose surgical suite. Varying amounts of fat were removed from the different sites, for a total of about 2.5 liters. The patient is very pleased with her new contours. She plans to continue her diet and exercise regimen, and states she is now considering breast augmentation.
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 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!
Like many women investigating tummy tuck at our San Jose practice, this 44-year-old mother wanted to regain some of her pre-pregnancy contours. Specifically, she wanted a tighter tummy and removal of some of the skin that had stretched and loosened in that area.
To repair the spreading of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), Dr. Vincent Lepore performed abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with removal of excess skin. In addition, she had liposuction of the upper-mid abdomen and flanks. Dr. Lepore performed the outpatient procedures together in our surgical suite. The patient is very happy with her "new" look.
