Mommy Makeover

Before And After Photos

This is a 40 year old mother of three, 5’5″ and 160 pounds, interested in a mommy makeover. She wanted me to focus on her abdomen and her areas with excess fat. She is seen here a year after liposuction of her abdomen, flanks, and backside (3400cc of fat was removed) and a full abdominoplasty.

You can see that she has “dog ears” at the ends of her lower abdominal scar from the tummy tuck (see the arrows on the full frontal view). This is not uncommon after a big tummy tuck and liposuction procedures. I will contour these “dog ears” with some liposuction under local anesthesia to ensure that her result is as good as it gets. She is very pleased with her surgery results (particularly after I showed her the pre-operative photographs in the examining room). Why is it that patients so quickly forget the benefits of plastic surgery?
