This 44 year old hairstylist had been thinking about a mommy makeover for may years. She has reached her long term, stable weight and is now ready to proceed with breast lifting surgery as well as tummy tuck surgery.
After extensive research online, she came across double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tom Pousti and was impressed by his expertise regarding breast and body surgery. After examination, she decided to proceed with scheduling her procedure.
Dr. Pousti discussed the procedure in detail as well as the potential risks and complications associated with these procedures. Markings and measurements are performed prior to surgery and used as a roadmap during the mommy makeover procedure.
The breast lift surgery was performed first. The excess skin was marked and removed and the nipple/areola complexes are moved the appropriate position on the breast mound.

The excess, damaged skin is removed during the tummy tuck surgery.
