A mother of 2 in her late 30’s who is bothered by severe bulging of her abdomen in clothing and in a bathing suit. She “carried big” with her pregnancies. She is also bothered by the small size of her breasts. She was a Full C when pregnant and now is a 32 A. Although her tissues are thin and more likely to show wrinkles from an implant, she has chosen Saline implants after considering the options because she likes the benefit of more easily knowing when the implants leak and is willing to accept the tradeoffs of more palpable and visible wrinkles and ripples when compared to silicone. She is shown before and again, 6 weeks after full abdominoplasty and breast augmentation. Her scars are typically at the worst at 6 weeks and will now fade and improve over the next two years. There is also typically swelling in the lower abdomen that continues to resolve over the next 4 months. She is 5’ 2 ¼” and 105 lbs and chose a 300 cc smooth round moderate profile saline implant placed through an inframammary incision and below the muscle. "Diver's view" demonstrates the tightening of the abdominal skin.
