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.
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 is a patient who has much to celebrate. She's in her early forties, has had 2 beautiful children, and has recently achieved an amazing weight loss. On her own, she's lost over 100 pounds. She came to see Dr. Lepore to discuss the options available to her through Mommy Makeover surgery, to further reclaim her desired physical contour.
She's done so much on her own, but with major weight loss, and the effects of multiple pregnancies, she's unable to reverse sagging, laxity, and excess skin. A 'Mommy Makeover' is a non-medical term used to describe a combination of surgical procedures to address individual concerns. In our patient's case, she's chosen Breast Augmentation with Silicone Implants, Breast Lift, Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), and Liposuction.
The procedures were performed in one session in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite. She had an anchor-type Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation with smooth, round Silicone Implants (for upper pole fullness), a Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction of her abdomen, flanks, and thighs, to remove approximately 1500cc of fat.
For these procedures, several weeks of recovery time should be scheduled. Our patient is seen in the After photos, 8 weeks post-surgery. She is very pleased with the results of her Mommy Makeover.

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.
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.
In most areas like Palo Alto and Los Gatos, Mommy Makeover is the term used for a series of customized procedures designed to restore a number of areas, to their pre-pregnancy appearance. This patient, in her early 40s, came to see Dr. Lepore because of concerns about sagging skin and muscle in her abdominal area.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles and skin are often stretched beyond the point where exercise will help. The muscles in this area will often separate as well. This patient decided to undergo Tummy Tuck surgery to bring her abdomen back to its earlier contour. During this surgery, the muscle and skin are tightened, with some of the excess skin, removed as well.
Our patient also decided to have Liposuction in San Jose of the upper and mid abdomen and flanks, as well as her inner and outer thighs. For this procedure, Vaser ultrasound-assisted liposuction was used. The surgeries were performed in one session, in our fully-accredited surgical suite.
Following a recovery period of several weeks, our patient was back to her normal activities, with the restored appearance she wanted.
This woman came to see Dr. Lepore, to address some changes she was unhappy with, following pregnancy.
Now in her late 30s, she had undergone a breast lift, and augmentation with saline implants with another doctor, years ago. Time, along with the pregnancy and birth process, caused changes to her breasts and body contour.
During her Mommy Makeover surgery, Dr. Lepore performed capsulotomies on both breasts, removed the old saline breast implants, and replaced them with silicone gel, smooth, round, full profile implants. He also revised her previous, Donut style Breast Lift.
Our patient is very fit, and had little excess fat. However, through Liposuction, Dr. Lepore was able to remove sufficient fat, to perform a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure- adding dimension to her pelvic frame, and volume to her buttocks.
Our patient is shown 7 weeks following surgery, and is very pleased with her results, and her restored and added contours.
This is a patient in her late 30s, who had her breast implants removed a number of years ago, because of capsular contractures, a common complication. She was still hoping to change the appearance of her breasts, especially after pregnancy, and loss of upper pole volume.
She didn't want a breast augmentation with implants, but did want removal of excess fat from a number of areas - and hoped that Fat Transfer to her breasts would give her the results she wanted.
Dr. Lepore performed Liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and thighs - and then a Fat Transfer to the Breasts. In this case, 1000cc of the patient's fat were re-injected into each breast. She had been advised that a Breast Lift would maximize her results, but for now, she wanted to see what Fat Transfer alone could achieve.
She is seen 6 weeks after her procedures, and is very pleased with the outcome; the improved body contour achieved through Liposuction, as well as her renewed breast volume and shape.
After giving birth to her third child, this woman decided it was time to try to restore the appearance of her body.
She was concerned about the loss of volume in her breasts (which also had traits of Tuberous Breasts- characterized by a high inframammary fold), and noticeable asymmetry. In addition, she was disturbed by the amount of excess fat throughout her abdomen.
She decided to combine several procedures, for a Mommy Makeover. In this case, a Breast Lift, during which the unevennes of the breasts was corrected, a Breast Augmentation with 450cc implants, and Liposuction of her abdomen and flanks.(1950cc removed)
The After photos were taken 7 weeks following surgery. She is very pleased with her results!
