Mommy Makeover / Tummy Tuck & Breast Lift

I was presented with a 40-year-old female who was looking to have a mommy makeover. During the consultation she was looking to have her abdomen enhanced as well as a breast augmentation. She explained that after 2 hernia surgeries and post pregnancy her goal was to get her shape back to pre pregnancy.

After setting her expectations, we decided to perform an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, along with a breast lift and 240cc saline breast implant filled to 270cc to her right breast and 350cc to the left breast.

As you can see, after only six weeks post op, the patient is looking fantastic, and I’m very pleased with her recovery.


Dow Corning Ruptured Silicone Breast Implant

Before and After Dow Corning Ruptured Silicone Breast Implant RevisionI was presented a 55 year old patient with with a ruptured Dow Corning silicone breast implant. During the consultation we discussed her goals and outlined the approach to achieve her breast revision and enhancement.

For the left breast we selected 425cc silicone high profile gel implant.  The right breast we selected 400cc silicone high profile gel implant. As you can see from the 6 week post op photo the augmentation achieved a nice symmetrical balance.



Post Pregnancy Baker 4 Capsular Contracture

I was presented a patient who, after pregnancy, developed a Baker 4 capsular contracture to her breast. When any type of breast implant is inserted, the body naturally forms a protective lining around it. This is referred to as the capsule or tissue capsule. This happens in everyone whether the breast implant is smooth or textured, silicone or saline.

After pregnancy, this 27-year-old patient developed capsular contracture  where the  capsule began to shrink and formed a abnormal shape. As you can see, the preop photo to the left shows her breasts being squeezed out of their normal position by the progressive tightening of the capsule.

To correct this, I performed a open capsulotomy, releasing the capsules from the implants and replacing them with 280 moderate plus silicone implants. After 6 weeks, the postop photo shows a natural and symmetrical look.
