Mommy Makeover Case 2
Surgeon : Mo Zakhireh
TC is a pleasant 40 year old lady who has such an inspirational story. She comes to us locally and is the mother of 7 children, yes 7. She breast fed them all and is a 36B cup at 5’6”and 165LBS. She was very quiet and shyly asked if we 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 we got to work feeling very inspired and honored that we could share such a vision and change this lovely lady’s life by rejuvenating her spirit. We took off 2 liters of fat from her back, flanks, love handles and axillae. Then we cleaned her fat and augmented her buttocks with 650cc of good fat. The advantage to fat is that it's your own, and becomes living, breathing tissue. In our experience, 70% of the fat takes because we deliver it deep next to the gluteus maximus muscles which provide very good blood supply. Then we turned the patient over and did a very nice tummy tuck with cutting out of a lot of excess skin and stretch marks. It's so important to get the belly button just right. Our philosophy: the belly button is the unsung hero. If done well, it's really subtle and not noticeable. Yet it is icing on the cake and makes the tummy sexier! Last but not least, we sized the patient on the table and noted that 500cc breast implants balanced her shoulders into her hips. With the right size of implants, the body flows in graceful symmetry and is in total balance. We used smooth gel gummy bear implants and placed them under the pectoralis muscles for softer, smoother results and also for effective reading of mammograms. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to stand back and feel inspired by our results. The patient is very happy and the last time we checked in, she had gone from a size11 to size 9. Way to go TC!
