Mommy Makeover-San Jose
This woman, in her late 40s, has made a careful decision to address some of the changes in her body. She's a mother of two, and has recently lost close to 50 pounds.
She felt ready to explore what a Mommy Makeover might do. In talks with Dr. Lepore, she discussed concerns about her abdomen, and her breasts. The pregnancies and the weight loss have left their marks- significant loose abdominal skin, lax abdominal muscles, and areas of excess fat. Her breasts, in the DD size range, were somewhat pendulous, with one breast larger, and sagging more than the other.
'Mommy Makeover' is the name given to a combination of surgeries, designed to address the individual areas of concern. In this case, it was determined that our patient would be best served with the following: an extended abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Breast Reduction and Breast Lift, and Liposuction. During the tummy tuck surgery, the abdominal muscles were repaired, and the excess skin removed. During the breast reduction surgery, differering amounts of tissue were removed from each breast, creating a more symmetrical result, and with the Breast Lift, the breasts were elevated, and the nipples repositioned. Finally, excess fat was removed through Liposuction, from the abdomen and flanks.
In this case, the surgeries were performed in a single session. The patient is seen about 2 months following the procedures, in the After photos, with a completely different contour. She is very pleased with her results.
