Tummy Tuck Before & Afters Case #4073
This 38 year old woman from Laguna, California was considering plastic surgery after child birth and came to our Los Angeles office for advice on the cosmetic surgery procedures that would help her achieve an improved body contour.
At 5'6" and 137 pounds, she was in her ideal weight range but was unhappy with breasts that had begun to sag and a very prominent belly "pooch" that gave her an unflattering mid-body appearance. During her consultation, a breast lift was discussed to elevate her breasts, but she chose instead to have augmentation without mastopexy. In some cases, breast enlargement alone can give the breasts an elevated appearance, and this patient did not want the scars on her breasts required to achieve breast lift. A 350 cc cohesive silicone gel implant was placed under the pectoral muscle of both breasts, which increased her cup size from a 36 C to a 36 C/D.
For her stomach area, her surgeon performed both abdominoplasty (a "tummy tuck") and liposuction to remove excess fat. Liposuction alone was not enough because her abdominal muscles had become stretched out as a result of her 2 pregnancies.
The "after" pictures here show her results 3 months post surgery. She is very happy with the outcome of her plastic surgery after pregnancy and hopes to be able to enjoy her revitalized look for years to come.
