Dr. DeLuca Mommy Makeover Before and After > Mommy Makeover - Breast & Body (Tummy Tuck + Liposuction)

This set of mommy makeover before and after photos features a 34 year old black female (5'10", 174 lbs) and former model residing in Albany NY who, following the birth of her 2 children, could not regain her pre-pregnancy figure despite a careful diet and regular exercise. Upon examination, I noted that her abdominal muscles had separated, the skin around her waist was excessive/redundant and lax and that there was a bit too much fullness in the hips and medial (middle) thighs. She also presented with 1st degree ptosis (drooping) of the breast due to loss of volume. We corrected all of this with what is often referred to as a "mommy makeover" - namely: a dual plan breast augmentation utilizing smooth silicone implants, a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction of the medial thighs and hips. The first set of photos shows her progression from before surgery through 1, 4 and 6 months post-op. As the photos reveal, the difference between her pre- and post-op appearance is dramatic. Her breasts are fuller and display an ideal teardrop shape (also note how their position and final shape settles over time). Her abdomen and hips are flat and the muscles of her stomach wall are once again tight. Together, her enlarged bust, tighter waist and streamlined hips create an elegantly balanced shape and silhouette. Recovery was very easy - the scars are healing nicely and she was able to resume her exercise routine 3 weeks after surgery. Last but not least, her pre-surgery goal of 'regaining her before-child-birth body' has now changed to surpassing it.
