I've always disliked my abdomen (fat pooch), breast shape (tubular & looked droopy @16yrs old), areola size (too large), lower back fat, and small/flat back side.
After 2 kids and many ups and downs in my weight & muscle tone, I decided to take the plunge and start changing some of what I have always disliked. In May of 2013, @ 36 yrs old, I had my first procedure, a tummy tuck. It took a few months, but I fell in love with my new tummy.
So, two years later, when I was finally ready for lipo/fat grafting to my butt & a breast lift with implants, I went back to my plastic surgeon, Dr. Troy Thompson, in Round Rock. He is a complete perfectionist & master of his craft. (I actually consulted with 2 other PS before returning to Dr. Thompson's office but both surgeons missed things that Dr. Thompson pointed out, which I felt would make a significant difference in my final results.)
Anyway, needless to say, after my consultation with Dr T, I couldn't wait to get on his schedule.
One month later, my surgery is complete and I'm healing at home. I'm very swollen & bruised (as expected) from the lipo but feel great and have very little pain. I'll post updated pics as I have them.
1 week post op pics
My swelling is starting to go down. My incisions are healing nicely. Can't wait until I can be done with the paper tape!
My old tummy tuck scar pic
The bad scarring was caused by a fall I had two wks post op from my tummy tuck. I just wanted y'all to be able to see a before pic
Just over a year later (10/2016)
So I'm 1 year 2+ months out from my Brazilian butt lift/fat grafting & breast augmentation with lift, and 3 years out from my tummy tuck. I figured I should update my photos.
I'm extremely pleased with my results and wouldn't hesitate to refer a friend to Dr. Thompson. The only thing I would change is that I wish (at the time of my surgery) I would have had a more fat to be placed into my buttocks area. (Not something Dr. Thompson could control.)
I am including pictures from before my first surgery, post tummy tuck, pre lipo/breast work, post lipo/breast work and now.
A few more pics with clothing
The doctors office pics aren't always at the best angle. All of these are my final product of all the procedures I had with Dr. Thompson. ?? his work!!
Side by side before & after
It makes me sad that my husband lived with the old me for so long. I couldn't be happier with my results!
