Mommy Makeover – Revision Breast Lift with Implants & Complex Extended Lower Abdominoplasty with a Floating Navel Technique
This 39 year-old woman from the Mission, Texas area presented to my cosmetic plastic surgery clinic requesting a redo breast lift and redo liposuction to her abdomen. She is 5’7” tall and weighed 155 pounds. She had recently undergone a breast reduction by a general plastic surgeon in the area, and she was very unhappy with her results. She had also previously undergone liposuction to her abdomen in Mexico several years prior and was unhappy with the residual contour defects. In order to achieve her desired outcomes and breast profile, we performed a complex redo breast lift with different sized implants and a small breast reduction on the left. We placed Allergan INSPIRA High Profile Silicone Gel implants in the subpectoral (dual-plane) position: 345cc on the left and 365cc on the right. For her abdomen, we had discussed that she was not a candidate for redo liposuction. In order to achieve her goals and correct the pre-existing contour defects from the prior liposuction, repair her umbilical hernia, plicate her diastasis recti, and revise her c-section scar we performed a complex, extended lower abdominoplasty with a floating navel technique. As part of this procedure, her lap-band port was also repositioned to a more cosmetic position. We also performed VASER liposuction throughout her abdomen and waist. Her new body is shown at 2 months, and she loves her cosmetic surgery results!
