Body Sculpting: Total Body Makeover
These examples show female patients who have had significant fluctuation in their weight associated with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and massive weight loss. As a result, they have undergone a combination surgical procedures like breast augmentation with breast lift surgery, breast augmentation with tummy tuck surgery, and breast reduction surgery. These women are excellent examples to how ever patients is different, but can regain their life and self-image by having tightening procedures of both the breasts and abdominal areas following their pregnancy experience.
Many women often present after breastfeeding with significant fluctuation of skin laxity of the breast causing involutional upper pole loss of fullness and atrophy as well as severe skin laxity where the nipple may be greater than 3 cm below the fold, referred to as grade 3 ptosis. These patients will require a combination of implants (saline or silicone) placed under the muscle and a formal mastopexy concurrently with the complete scar of a Wise-pattern.
Case Study #1
Mommy Makeover Surgery
The first example shows a female patient having undergone Mommy Makeover surgery. During her procedure, she had a series of proceeds performed on her body, including breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and sculpting of the muffin top hip areas.
Case Study #2
Tummy Tuck Surgery and Breast Augmentation
The next patient shows specifically loss of upper pole fullness without skin laxity and abdominal wall laxity with rectus diastasis. Excellent candidate for straight saline augmentation in the dual plane technique and a full abdominoplasty with plication of midline rectus sheath.
Case Study #3
Breast Reduction and Breast Lift Surgery
During her consultation, this 34-year-old mother of two explained that she was hoping to have a breast lift as well as a reduction in the size of her implants. After listening to her expectations and agreeing with her goals, we scheduled her for surgery. During her breast revision surgery, we replaced her old 500 cc saline implants with 350 cc saline implants and performed a mastopexy (breast lift) procedure. After six weeks, the post-op photo shows a natural and symmetrical look

All three patients are excellent examples of when patients are placed under general anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist and full medical clearance can undergo successfully, in an ambulatory facility, full body contouring and mommy makeover procedures without incident.
