As you may know, Mommy Makeover is a term used to describe a combination of surgeries that address areas many women want to revise after pregnancy; specifically breasts, tummy, and fat removal through liposuction.
In this case, the patient is choosing a Mommy Makeover in San Jose as a result of weight loss rather than pregnancy. Despite an extensive exercise and diet program, the patient has been unable to "lose" the large amount of hanging skin on her abdomen. She is also concerned with large, and pendulous breasts.
In discussions with Dr. Lepore, she decides to undergo what's known as an extended tummy tuck, along with an anchor-type mastopexy (breast lift), and bilateral breast reduction. In addition, she decides to have liposuction to further tailor her mid-abdomen and flanks.
The procedures were performed in a single session. With the combination of surgeries, recovery is more involved, and will take several weeks. The After photos seen here, were taken approximately 4 months following the surgeries.
The patient is very pleased with her results and her revised look. She continues her diet and exercise program.
