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.
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 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 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.

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.
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.
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.
Are 'Mommy Makeovers' just for moms? No. Mommy Makeover is a popular term used to describe a combination of procedures, aimed at recontouring or reshaping different areas of the body. The multiple procedures may be performed in one session, or in stages, over a period of time.
In this case, our patient is a woman in her early 40s, who wants to address concerns she has with the appearance of her breasts. She wished for a reduction in their overall size and weight, as well as correction of the unevennes. Here breasts were in the DD cup range, with the left breast larger, more pendulous, and heavier than the right. She also wanted a reduction of excess fat in multiple areas, through Liposuction.
Dr. Lepore performed a Breast Reduction with anchor-type Breast Lift. Nearly 3/4 of a pound of tissue was removed from the left breast, approximately 2/3 lb. from the right, to create better symmetry of her breasts, in addition to reducing their overall size and weight.. The breasts were then lifted, and tailored. During the Liposuction procedure, more than 3,000cc of excess fat was removed from her abdomen, flanks, chest, and back.
The patient is seen 7 weeks following her procedures, and is very pleased with her results. *Patients seeking more complex, multiple area procedures, must be in good health.
