This 27 year old had been interested in a mommy makeover for a long time. She was unhappy with the loose and damaged abdominal skin as well as her breast aysmmetry. She wanted to find a board certified plastic surgeon to help her “get her body back”.
After meeting with Dr. Pousti and discussing her goals, she decided to proceed with tummy tuck surgery, flank and back lipectomy as well as breast augmentation/ lifting. She felt very confident in Dr. Pousti’s expertise in breast and body surgery.
Markings and measurements are performed prior to surgery, in front of a full length mirror. The procedure is reviewed in detail as well as the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure.
As you can see below, the markings indicate that the left breast is larger (smiley face) and lower than the right breast therefore needing mastopexy to improve breast asymmetry.
The left photo below shows the separated abdominal muscles, dark vertical lines- the right photo shows the muscle plication -abdominal muscles brought together- during tummy tuck surgery.
The excess skin of the abdomen as well as the flanks and back are removed during the abdominoplasty procedure.
Immediately after Mommy Makeover that involved – bilateral breast augmentation, mastopexy on left breast, abdominoplasty, flank and back lipectomy- Mentor smooth round high profile silicone 425cc left side and 475 cc on the right side
