Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
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.
