This 24 year old lady lost over 120 #'s! Although she was extremely happy to lose the weight, she also was left with a great deal of loos skin in several areas including her breasts and body. In addition, her arms became more loose and flabby. She essentially needs to be "compacted with a skin reduction. This involves several approaches that can all be done safely at the same operative setting. With the breast lift, the patients nipples are elevated to a position above the crease below the breasts. The tissue is compacted but as you can see, even in the early stages, there is some sloping above the nipples. The best way to make her breasts "young and perky" is to add implants to enhance the fullness above the nipples. However, this lady would have no part of that idea (although most will take the fullness with an implant approach) since she was so large breasted before her weight loss. With the abdominoplasty, the entire area below the fold in her mid abdomen that is hiding her belly button was removed. Then, the tissue above this area was pulled down like a drape and the belly button "repopped" at its birth position. The belly button is NOT removed. The patient is sat up during the procedure to enable the abdominal tissue to be tight with the redraping. The resection is also carried all the way around the waist to remove many inches (in this case 6 inches) of waist tissue to the back and thus giving a lateral thigh lift and a butt lift with a "belt lipectomy". Her arms were also reduced in size as they were flabby and she did not like the "waddle". With this lift, the tissue and skin are removed and the arms tightened with the remaining 1/3 or so of the circumference of the skin around the biceps upper arm areas. This patient is very happy. She has achieved with a surgical procedure what she could not have accomplished by herself. Patients with significant weight loss are quite discouraged in that they reach a point that the tightening is needed. Even with this case, the patient stays one night and is home and about the next day. I do not want patients to go home and sit. I want them active quickly. Our appointments are quite productive and when patients are coming from far distances or other states/countries, we do all we can to accomodate them. The patient is seen 4 months post op and she will get better and better as the year or more goes by. Notice that the scars fade quite nicely although they are now seen in the early phases in these pictures. Happy patient/happy doctor.
