Abdominoplasty and Buttock Augmentation/Lift
This patient, in her mid 40s, is progressing through her weight loss journey. She has had gastric sleeve surgery, and has lost over 80 pounds. The weight loss has left a significant and uncomfortable amount of sagging skin and tissue over her abdomen and sides. She is hoping to address several areas of concern. Dr. Lepore explained that several surgical sessions would be necessary. The first, would address her main area of concern, her abdomen and sides.
She decided to undergo an extended abdominoplasty, with a midline resection of her loose skin. During this procedure, differing amounts of skin and tissue were removed from each side, the skin, and underlying tissue then tailored.
In a separate surgical session, several months later, our patient wished to have excess fat removed through Liposuction, and wanted the fat transferred, in a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, to enhance and shape her buttocks.
She had Liposuction of her flanks, upper and lower abdomen, and back. The patient's fat was then injected into the buttocks. She is very pleased with the results of her body-shaping procedures. As she continues her health and fitness journey, she is investigating further refinements, as she reaches her goals.
