This 53 year old lady has lost a tremendous amount of weight and has the typical results. A lighter body on the scale but a great deal of extra rubbery tissue that she can not tighten by herself. You can see that she has concerns in the breast area with the droopiness and the loss of volume that needs to be approached by a breast lift with implants. Some doctors do this in two phases but I do it in one. When you do hundreds of these cases, you get to know the pitfalls of the procedure. Her breasts are lifted and you can see that she has a very nice contour and a youthful appearance that will last decades at least. A high nipple position in relationship to the inframmary crease is desirable. Now to her body. You can see that she has a great deal of extra tissue on the abdomen and a loss of tightness in the muscles of the abdomen. With this, there is a "potty" appearance of the muscles under the loose tissue that is felt but not seen too much because of all of her extra lower and upper abdominal tissue. We took off over 15 inches of abdominal tissue in the vertical direction as we tightened the abdomen soft tissue and tightened up the midline muscles. This means that the area just at the upper pubic hair (and sometimes we will remove the upper pubic hair if it seems that it will come up on the abdomen) is able to be pulled down to her mid thigh and then the removal takes place at the level of the pubic hair. So you can imagine the tightening. Note that her abdomen looks much more youthful. Interesting is the back tissue. Note in the pre op photograph that the patient can grab about 12 inches of extra tissue giving her a butt lift if that tissue could be removed and then sutured. This was done but it does leave a scar in the place where the two edges meet after the removal. Thus this is called a belt lipectomy or belt tummy tuck (that extends to the back). Notice the tight shape of her buttocks in the pre op photograph (where she is holding the back tissue to be taken out) and this is seen in the post op photo too. Just imagine how all of this tops off the loss of weight and the increase in confidence level with her now "ready to shop" feeling. Happy patient...happy doctor. Seen at approximately 6 months post op.
