KC is a 29 year old female from New Port Beach, CA. She is referred to us through her friend and also the internet. She is a mother of four 7 pound pregnancies and breast fed all 4 of her children. She states that her pregnancies changed her body and despite exercising all the time, she cannot get her body to tighten. She is interested in the mommy makeover ( liposuction, tummy tuck and breast augmentation) in the Palm Springs area.
During her consultation, I noted that the patient had extensive stretch marks on her abdomen and a lot of laxity in her abdominal muscles. I advised her once the muscles get stretched out as a result of pregnancy, you can exercise and strengthen the muscles but they will always remain stretched out. I also noted quite a bit of fat around the waistline and lovehandles. I advised the patient that for her safety we would liposuction the back and lovehandles but would liposuction the abdomen after her tummy tuck heals. In our experience if you liposuction the abdomen and do tummy tuck at the same time, the incision gets infected 70% of the time due to knocking out too much of the blood supply. I also noted that the patient’s right breast was slightly more ptotic than the left breast, most likely the result of her babies favoring the right breast. We sized the patient with 400cc implants to plan on making her a D cup and balance her shoulders to her hips.
During her mommy makeover (liposuction of back, lovehandles, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation) at our Palm Desert office, I first liposculpted this patient’s back, flanks, hips and lovehandles. We took off a total of 3.3 liters of high quality fat. Then we augmented her with 400cc mentor smooth gel high profile implants to balance her shoulders to her hips. Last but not least, the tummy tuck was performed and the patients abdominal muscles and belly button were reconstructed. The patient did well and returned 10 weeks later to have her tummy liposuctioned and an additional 2.2 liters was removed at that time. This really was the icing on the cake and gave her an amazing and athletic body.
At her 2 month followup, this patient looked and felt amazing. She has started working out and is eating much better than she used to. She has also started to work on her family’s nutrition and exercise routine which makes our team feel so good!
