Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation - Case: 30348
Here we have a nice 23-year-old lady from Litchfield Park, Arizona whose priorities were the breasts. She was concerned about the flabby skin and large areolas that developed after the birth of her last child, six years ago. She had been waiting all this time to have a breast augmentation with a breast lift and was also concerned about the looseness in her abdominal skin and requested a tummy tuck at consultation.
Based on our discussions, we recommended a tummy tuck with liposuction of the hips to reduce her dress size. For her breasts, we recommended breast augmentation with placement of saline implants under the muscle to restore the perkiness. We discussed her soft breasts and the areola breast lift technique because it would effectively reduce the size of the areola and give her breasts a firmer appearance.
At the time of her surgery, she was wearing a 36 B and she requested a D cup after breast enhancement. She is in good health, 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighs 158 pounds right before surgery.
A breast augmentation and areola reduction using 540 cc smooth round moderate-plus saline breast implants placed via nipple incisions under the muscle was performed. An areola lift was also performed through the same incisions. A tummy tuck was performed using our very low incision technique and the abdominal muscles were corrected. Liposuction in the tummy, love handles, and flanks allowed for the removal of 1700 cc of unwanted fat from her body. A pain-reducing pump was placed for greater comfort.
After surgery, she preferred to go home, rather than stay overnight, and made an outstanding recovery after her mommy makeover. Her breasts are very perky and full, which has given her increased self-esteem, and she is no longer self-conscious about her tummy.
