Mommy Makeover(Tummy Tuck, Liposuction)-San Jose.
This patient is a 36 year old woman from the Bay Area, who was searching for what could be described as a Mommy Makeover in San Jose. She had two previous C-sections and wanted help in getting back to her "pre-Mom" appearance. We discussed Abdominoplasty, popularly known as "Tummy Tuck," reviewing the various options and risks of abdominal contour improvement. It was decided that she would be best served with an abdominoplasty and upper abdominal and flank liposuction. The abdominal muscles were also tightened, giving her a slimmer waistline. This is what we refer to as an extended Tummy Tuck, since skin was removed from the sides, or flanks, necessitating a longer than average scar. Following her San Jose Tummy Tuck (and San Jose Mommy Makeover), she felt some discomfort for the first few days, but was up on her feet and starting gentle activites in three days. She was feeling 100% back to normal in about a month.
The combination procedure accomplished just what the patient was hoping for and she's very happy with her new silhouette.
