This is a healthy lady who had a prior augmentation mastopexy with saline implants. At that time, her nipple areolar complexes were large and I was not able to get all the areola pigment out of the mastopexy. There was some areola pigment left on the midline scar associated with the mastopexy. She wished her breasts rounded and the pigment removed from the breast skin. She also was participating in a fitness competition and wanted to minimize the animation seen with submuscular implants. She had children and had some loose skin on her abdomen. All of her muscles were tight. At the time of the redo aug/mastopexy with conversion to a subglandular plane, she had an abdominoplasty. The scar was placed low where it could be hidden within intimate clothing. This resulted in an elevated, flattened, and triangular mons. The suctioning gave some contour to the midline of the abdomen and at the junction between the rectus abdominis muscles and the external obliques. She has gotten a very nice result. The scars are only 2 months out and they will continue to fade over time.

These are pre-op and 2 month post-op photographs of a female who wished some improvement in her truncal contour. She had prior breast implants which did beautifully. She was an exercise buff and in spite of several children had maintained pretty good muscle tone. On exam prior to surgery, she had a rounded abdomen with loose skin and she had large flank collections that hid her upper border of her buttocks. She underwent an excision of excess abdominal skin with liposuction to create the abdominal muscle contours. She has suctioning of the flanks and fat grafting of her buttocks. She has gotten and outstanding result. She is extremely pleased with her new contour and how she looks in swimwear and more intimate apparel.

This is a 50ishYO female who wished some improvement in her truncal contour. She is 5’6” tall and weighs about 185lbs. She has had several pregnancies and wanted improvement primarily in her abdomen. She wanted her abdomen flat and the loose skin tightened. She underwent a conventional abdominoplasty. The loose muscles were repaired in the midline to tighten and flatten the abdominal contour. The excess abdominal skin was removed. This gave her a much improved and more youthful abdominal contour. It elevated and flattened the mons pubis to also give a more youthful contour. She had an entirely uneventful recovery. She is extremely pleased with her results.

This is a lady that was referred by her OBGYN for consideration for an abdominoplasty in conjunction with a hysterectomy. She has had several pregnancies and wished improvement in her abdomen and her flanks. She had on exam a thick abdominal pannus with a mild separation of the rectus muscles that created the rounded appearance of her abdomen. When she sat down the excess skin that folded out onto her lap was uncomfortable in clothing. The plan was for an abdominoplasty and also liposuctioning of her flanks. In the operating room following the hysterectomy, she had an abdominoplasty with liposuction of about 800cc from her abdomen. She had 700cc of fat removed from her flanks. These are pre and post op photographs at 2 months after her procedure. She has gotten a nice, flattened contour of her abdomen with suctioned outlines of the rectus muscles. Her flanks are now more concave which gives more prominent contour to her buttock shape. This converts her backside to an “S” contour. This is a much more feminine shape and gives a more defined waist. This makes her clothing more comfortable and more attractive.
