Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of surgeries performed to restore pre-pregnancy contours. This patient is in her mid-30s. A mother of 3 children, she was hoping to re-shape some areas that had changed with those pregnancies. Her first questions centered on "Brazilian Butt Lift" or Buttock Enhancement procedures. For buttock enhancement, we can remove fat from unwanted areas, (flanks, abdomen, thighs),and transfer it by injection to other areas, including the buttocks. In this case, our patient had hoped the Liposuction procedure might flatten and tighten her abdomen. In discussions with Dr. Lepore, she learned that Liposuction alone cannot resolve the stretched muscles and sagging skin that often come with pregnancy. Tummy Tuck surgery does address that. She decided to proceed with the Tummy Tuck, in addition to multiple area Vaser Liposuction, and Free Fat Transfer to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift).
