Lower Body lift, Breast Augmentation
28 year old woman desired body contouring and breast enhancement after losing 150 pounds through diet and exercise. The "after" photos (right) are 1.5 years after "belt lipectomy" or lower body lift and breast augmentation.
The breast augmentation was done with 450 cc moderate profile silicone implants. The FDA fully supports the use of silicone for breast augmentation and the new cohesive gel (aka "gummybear") implants do not leak out of the shell.
Restoration of the "hourglass" contour of the waist is achieved with liposuction, and lifting of the buttocks is done with the lower body lift.
This is a 28 year old woman who wanted to restore the shape of her body after having lost 150 pounds through diet and exercise. While the fat goes away with weight loss, the extra stretched-out skin does not. A lower body lift, liposuction and breast augmentation restores the hourglass shape of... the body, and the results last a lifetime. Recovery is about 3 weeks off work.
