Mommy Makeover Case 2
Surgeon : Mo Zakhireh
TC was a pleasant 40-year-old lady who had such an inspirational story. She came to Cosmetic Surgery Institute locally and was the mother of seven children (yes, seven!). She breastfed them all, was a 36B cup at 5’6”and 165 lbs. The patient was very quiet and shyly asked if Cosmetic Surgery Institute could help her with her breasts, torso and her buttocks. After all the years of dedication to her kids, now she wanted to do something for herself.
So, the team got to work feeling very inspired and honored that they could share such a vision and change this lovely lady’s life by rejuvenating her spirit. Two liters of fat were taken from her back, flanks, love handles and axillae. Then her fat was cleaned, and her buttocks augmented with 650cc of good fat. The advantage to this autologous fat is that it comes from the patient's own body, and becomes living, breathing tissue.
In the Cosmetic Surgery Institute team's experience, 70% of autologous fat takes, because surgeons deliver it deep, next to the gluteus maximus muscles which provide very good blood supply. Afterwards we turned the patient over and performed a very successful tummy tuck which involved cutting out plenty of excess skin and stretch marks. The team believes that it’s so important to get the belly button just right, when it comes to mommy makeovers. The Los Angeles-based Cosmetic Surgery Institute philosophy: the belly button is the unsung.
