This 40-year-old Bay Area woman wanted to regain her pre-pregnancy figure, so she visited Dr. Vincent Lepore for a Mommy Makeover consultation in San Jose.
Dr. Lepore performed an abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, to tighten up the muscles stretched and loosened by childbearing. He also performed liposuction of the upper abdomen and flanks.
The patient recovered in 2 weeks and is very happy with her smaller waistline.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
This young woman is a proud mother of two. After breast-feeding, she noticed a significant loss of volume, and some sagging in her breasts. She came to Dr. Lepore, to discuss what would amount to a "mini-Mommy Makeover" - a Breast Augmentation, and Breast Lift.
After learning about her options, she chose to proceed with Breast Augmentation, with high-profile saline implants, as well as what's known as an "anchor" type, standard mastopexy, or Breast Lift. This type provides greater "lift" in altering the nipple position, and creating a kind of 'skin bra' to support the breasts.
Our patient underwent both procedures in one surgical session. She was able to resume her complete, very busy schedule as a young mom, within a couple of weeks. And she is very happy with her results, and restored breast contour.
For San Jose Tummy Tuck and Liposuction surgeries, this woman came to see Dr. Lepore.
The 50-year old patient felt it was time to address some of her own concerns, after having six children. She was disturbed by the appearance of her abdomen following the pregnancies, with one of the deliveries by C-section. She discussed her options with Dr. Lepore, and decided to proceed with surgery. Her procedures included an extended Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), as well as Liposuction on her abdomen, flank, and lateral chest areas. The procedures were performed in one session in our outpatient surgical facility. The patient has healed well, and is very pleased with her outcome, and her restored appearance.
This petite mom, in her 30s, came to see Dr. Lepore to explore Mommy Makeover options. She's had 3 children, all delivered by C-section. She's stayed in great shape, but notes significant stretching of her abdominal muscles and skin, as well as loss of volume and some sagging of her breasts. She wanted to know what procedures might improve, or reverse some of the physical results of childbearing.
After her consultation with Dr. Lepore, she decided to undergo the following customized procedures; a Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty), a Breast Lift (in her case, a Donut Mastopexy, providing a moderate lift with minimal scarring. The incision is made around the areola.), and Breast Augmentation. For her breast augmentation, she chose moderate profile, 295cc silicone gel implants.
Her surgeries were performed in our San Jose AAAASF-accredited surgical facility, in a single session. She is seen, 8 weeks later. Our patient is very pleased with the results of her San Jose Mommy Makeover.
This petite mom in her mid-30s has had 3 babies delivered by C-section. She came to our San Jose office to explore Mommy Makeover procedure options. The term Mommy Makeover is used to describe a customized combination of procedures designed to rejuvenate a woman's body after pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding. In this case, our patient was interested in abdominal restoration and breast enhancement. She noted a significant loss of volume in her breasts, along with some sagging.
During her consultation with Dr. Lepore, it was noted that she had significant stretching of her her abdominal wall muscles, and in addition, had an umbilical hernia. To address her concerns, Dr. Lepore recommended a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) including repair of the hernia, along with breast augmentation and breast lift. In her case, a donut lift was recommended.
She underwent the combined Mommy Makeover procedures in a single surgical session. For her breast augmentation, she chose moderate profile, 295cc silicone gel implants, which were placed beneath the chest muscle.
Our patient is shown 8 weeks after her Mommy Makeover surgery and is very pleased with her results.
