This 31 year old lady displays some very interesting reconstructive challenges. The patient wants to have her breasts lifted and wishes to have the "hanging tissue" and stretch marks removed from her lower abdomen. This is a frequent presentation of patients after having children. However, please note that the tummy tuck would not be doing anything to the waist and hips. To have a "bang" result from her body contouring, she would also need liposuction of the upper back/waist/hips at the same procedure setting. This would allow for the complete package. Interestingly about this case, the patient and myself discussed the breast lift/reduction and how we could get a long term youthful look. If a tuck is done alone, there is a very youthful effect of fullness above the nipples during the first 4-8 months but after that, gravity pulls on the breast tissue OVER the muscle and there develops a sloping above the nipple complex. This is not attractive to some patients so our discussions concluded that we would contour her breasts to the size desired by "overshooting" the reduction by about 200 grams. This would leave less breast tissue for the action of gravity. At the same time we decided to place a 200 cc implant (one gram = approximately one cc) under the muscle. By putting the implant under the muscle, it would allow for the implant to give a permanent fullness above the nipple complex that would last for a very long time as it would be muscle supported. (not be part of the breast weight) It also would allow for the muscle to give more normal tissue over the implant. Nice plan heh? So the patient had a tummy tuck with liposuction of the trunk area and a breast lift with implants. The patient is shown at 3 months post op and the scars are red at this point. They will fade to white in most cases over the 6-12 month time period. This result will get better over time as the breasts mature in their new contour and the body contouring continues to lose its fluid to get more of a pleasing result. Notice how you are brought to the immediate conclusion that this does not even seem like the same person. You are seeing a slender petite woman's body rather than a body with the post childbirth changes. In a few hours: Stretch marks gone....muscles tightened...breasts lifted...implant powered....PRESTO
