Perfect for mommy makeover with breast augmentation using fat
As a side note, also check that they can make a beautiful belly button. That is the most important feature that makes your result beautiful and one that allows you to wear a bikini without anyone knowing you had surgery.

Thank you for your question and photos. Depending on your physical exam, you may be a good candidate for a mini Tummy Tuck which could allow your Plastic Surgeon to tighten separated abdominal muscles below the umbilicus and flatten the lower portion of the abdomen. Liposuction to the abdomen and flanks may also be useful to you. I recommend that you speak with aboard certified Plastic Surgeon in person regarding these procedures and breast augmentation.

I have done many body contouring procedures and specialize in Vaser Hi Definition liposculpture. Vaser Hi Definition body sculpting requires extensive specialized training. I am one of few surgeons in the United States that was personally trained by Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the surgeon that developed this technique.
Vaser Hi Definition liposuction uses the concepts of negative and positive spaces in relation to the underlying bony and muscle anatomy to define areas such as your six pack and create and athletic looking physique.
From your photos, you appear to be an excellent candidate for Vaser hi definition liposculpture with fat grafting to your buttocks and breasts. The Vaser Hi Def will give you a more defined and contoured hourglass shape with better projection to your buttocks. The fat grafting will help restore volume to your breasts. You may also be a candidate for breast augmentation.
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.

The all-natural mommy makeover
You have just the right body for a tummy tuck and natural breast augmentation. here is more information about breast augmentation with fat transfer.
Micro fat transfers to the breasts, often called natural breast enhancement, is a surgical procedure that involves liposuction and removal of deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, and transferring that fat to the breasts. The procedure is used to enhance the breasts giving them a fuller. Each time the procedure is performed, the breasts will permanently enlarge up to one cup size. The fat transfer to the breasts is usually an outpatient procedure with a 4-7 day recovery off of work and 2-3 weeks away from strenuous exercise.
Fat transfers are charged by the number of body areas that are liposuctioned and treated. The estimated cost for one area of liposuction (e.g. abdominal area) is $1500, and the estimated cost for the fat transfer is $2600.00. That does not include facility or anesthesia fees which are based on the length of the surgery. That can be determined once I see the amount of fat necessary to be transferred to your breasts.
The only limit to breast enlargement by fat transfer is the amount of fat that you have elsewhere on your body to move to the breasts and the number of procedures that you can undergo. The secret to successful fat transfer is to have spaces in the recipient areas (your breasts) to put the fat. Think of fat cells as very small machines that need fuel to survive. Each fat cell transferred has to be placed next to a living cell so that it can draw oxygen and nutrients from it. If the transferred cell is surrounded by only other transferred fat cells, it will die and disappear. So it is important to transfer only enough fat cells that can be spread around in the native breast tissue. A glob of transferred fat cells will all die except for the few cells on the outer edges of the glob.
For example, starting with A-cup breasts, the transfer procedure may increase breast size by one cup size. Now you have B-cup breasts and with a second surgery more new fat can be accepted into the breast tissue, leading to a C-cup breast size. And so on and so forth.
Many women choose to have two or three surgeries to get to the size they want. After each surgery, they can decide if the breasts are large enough. The results are permanent and there are no implants to worry about or to ever replace.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship in order to know if this assessment is valid.

As for fat transfer to the breast, you need to understand the pros and cons of fat transfer to the breast before you decide to do that.
Fat transfer to the breast can cause fat necrosis, calcifications, cysts, which may interfere with mammogram. All this should be discussed and other options and the differences, complications, risks should be discussed in person.
