Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation - Case: 30351
After doing a lot of research on her own, this 30-year-old lady from Surprise, Arizona decided to discuss her goal of achieving a mommy makeover consisting of a breast augmentation combined with a tummy tuck.
For the tummy, she was concerned about the flabby skin that developed. Dr. Aldo recommended an abdominoplasty using the very low incision technique. He also recommended liposuction of the flanks and hips to reduce the waistline. In her opinion, the breasts were not saggy, and they were still perky. She was concerned that her right breast was smaller and tighter than the left breast. She did request to have a fuller cup and to achieve the most natural result possible.
Right before surgery, she was wearing a 36 B and requested a small D cup, with better symmetry. She is in good health, 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighs 143 pounds right before surgery. Achieving the most natural result possible was a big priority.
This patient had performed a lot of research about silicone and saline breast implants. He felt that silicone would give her the best results. Her mommy makeover was performed using Mentor’s MemoryGel Cohesive Silicone breast implants placed under the muscles for her breast augmentation. A larger implant of 400 cc moderate plus silicone gel was placed on her right breast for best symmetry. On the left, a 375 cc moderate plus silicone gel filled implant was placed.
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 1000 cc of unwanted fat from her body. A pain reducing pump was placed for greater comfort.
After surgery, she preferred to go home and made an excellent recovery. She has told us her breasts are symmetrical and feel soft and natural. Her new figure gives her new confidence.
