This patient had a simultaneous breast augmentation. She requested a large breast size to restore volume lost after her pregnancies. Remarkably, she did not take any prescription painkillers after the first day after surgery. She has the expected degree of bruising 6 days after surgery. By her 3-month appointment, she had dropped from a size 8 to a size 4. Her skin tone before surgery is not ideal—she has moderate laxity consistent with her age and four children. After ultrasonic liposuction, her skin tone has noticeably improved.
