Here we have a nice 35-year-old lady from Anthem, Arizona who presented to our Phoenix, Arizona area medical practice with interest in a mommy makeover. She had been thinking about a breast augmentation and tummy tuck for five years. Although she had seen other Arizona plastic surgeons, she never felt comfortable in proceeding with surgery, until she came in for a consultation at our plastic surgery center.
Our patient had never developed much breast tissue, having an A or B cup most of her life. She wanted to achieve natural looking results and a solid D cup after surgery. At the time of her mommy makeover, she was healthy, 5 feet 4 inches tall, and weighed 125 pounds.
She was determined to get silicone implants because she felt these were better than saline. In addition, she was also unhappy with the excess skin of her abdomen and stretch marks left from pregnancy. She wished to balance her appearance by increasing the fullness of her breasts and tightening her tummy with a tummy tuck.
Mentor’s 450 cc MemoryGel Cohesive moderate-plus silicone breast implants were placed under the muscles using a crease incision. A tummy tuck was performed using our very low incision technique and the abdominal muscles were tightened. A pain-reducing pump was placed and the patient remained overnight at the plastic surgery recovery center for greater comfort.
Our patient recovered very nicely after her mommy makeover. Now more confident with her appearance, she loves the natural softness of her breasts. She feels her tight tummy resembles her figure previous to getting pregnant, but she looks like she is in better shape now because the surgery has helped her to shed a few pounds.
