Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This patient, in her 30s, has had 3 children, and after the pregnancies, and resulting changes in her body, she would like to restore some contour to her abdomen and hips.
As she discussed her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she shared her hope that she might add some roundness to what she described as a 'square butt.' She wondered whether Liposuction and Fat Transfer would accomplish all of her goals. After her examination, Dr. Lepore noted that Liposuction would not address the quantity of loose skin in the abdominal area, and for that to be revised, Tummy Tuck would be a more effective option, combined with Liposuction. The patient was also counseled on what might be possible with Fat Transfer, to reshape the buttock area (Brazilian Butt Lift.)
The patient decided to have the combined procedures; Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction with Fat Transfer for Brazilian Butt Lift. The surgeries were performed in a single session in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite. During Liposuction, fat was removed from the abdomen, flanks, lateral chest area, back, and inner and outer thighs (a total of 1750cc removed). A portion of the patient's harvested fat was injected into the buttocks.
The patient is seen in the After photos, 10 weeks following surgery. She is very pleased, and feels the combined procedures have given her the results she hoped for.
