Mommy makeover in stages

Thank you for your question and helpful photos. It would be most helpful to loose some weight before moving forward with any type of body contouring procedure to get the best results possible. Risks and complications are also minimized once you loose weight. At 62, it would also be advisable to have medical clearance for surgery from your primary physician. In the name of safety, I would do your procedure in two stages and allow your body to heal completely from the breast lift first before continuing with the TT. I would use The Horndeski Method breast lift on you (which usually takes 4hrs to complete) to reshape, secure and reposition your breasts high on your chest wall to give you maximum lift and projection without the extra cost, maintenance, risks and complications associated with breast implants. I have attached a video that briefly describes this current technique. I hope this helps.  Best wishes to you,

Candidate for surgery

You appear to be a candidate for the procedures you are considering.  Begin by researching board certified plastic surgeons in your area.  At your consultation you can anticipate that you will learn about the benefits and risks of the procedures and will include an examination.  Be sure to have a list of any medications that you take.  Best of luck!

Breast lift and tummy tuck - done together or separately?

Thank you for asking about your tummy tuck and breast lift.
  • You are definitely a candidate for a breast lift and tummy tuck -
  • And some liposuction to shape the surgical result.
  • Your surgeon has to decide if it is safe to do them together -
  • If you are in good health and your BMI is 30 or lower,combined surgery is common.
  • You don't want surgery to take longer than 6 hours over-all, for safety.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Tummy tuck and breast lift

Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your photograph, you are a great candidate for a tummy tuck with liposuction.  This can be done through a low and short incision, all completely below the bikini line.  Your muscles can also be plicated resulting in a flat abdomen. A breast lift will give you improved shape and perkiness of your breasts.  The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.

Mommy Makeover /Breast Augmentation/Breast Implants/Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants/Tummy Tuck/Liposuction/BBL

I appreciate your question. These procedures are frequently performed together if the patient is in overall good health and cleared for surgery by the primary care physician.  For health and safety reasons, best to be at a BMI less than 30 or within 10 pounds of your goal weight and stable at that weight for 6 months prior to surgery for optimal results. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!

Mommy makeover

Thank you for your question.  Based on your photos, you would likely be a good candidate for a mommy makeover provided that your weight is stable at close to normal weight and that you're medically cleared.  Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.  Good luck!

I am interested in a breast lift and tummy tuck. Am I candidate for both and would both be done at the same time?

A tummy tuck and breast lift are routinely done at the same time in a healthy patient. Given your age, it is best if you get medical clearance for elective cosmetic surgery. As part of that clearance, you PCP or cardiologist will say if it is safe or low risk to undergo a certain amount of general anesthesia (ie. 6h).
