Before & After
This 46 year-old woman from Orlando, Fl desired improving her body to reverse the changes of childbirth. Her son was getting married and she wanted to look and feel her best. Because of the tight timeline for the wedding she appreciated the importance of having her surgery performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. She sought Michael Diaz, MD, a Melbourne, FL plastic surgeon.
During her consultation Dr. Diaz took a detailed history and performed a physical examination. He learned that she had previously undergone breast augmentation many years prior with saline breast implants. She wanted to update her look and increase her volume with new smooth round silicone gel “gummy bear” implants. She also wanted to get rid of the loose skin and “muffin top” while narrowing her waist. After listening to her desires, Dr. Diaz created an individual Mommy Makeover surgical plan, which included an implant exchange using smooth round silicone gel implants, increasing her volume to help tighten the the breast skin and add volume to the upper pole. A tummy tuck would help tighten the skin and repair the separated muscles. Liposuction of the flanks would be performed as well.
During her surgery, Dr. Diaz placed 375 Moderate Plus profile implants, an modest increase in her original volume of 300cc. Moderate Plus Profile implants were selected to fill in the upper pole without being excessively large. Because this patient desired short scar breast surgery, Dr. Diaz placed the implants in the Dual Plane pocket with the aid off the Keller Funnel, which allows implants to be placed with a shorter scar and aids with the minimal touch technique. The tummy tuck was performed by tightening the muscles with a “corset”, which helped narrow the waist. The excess skin that was causing her “muffin top” was removed. Liposuction of the love handles was also performed.
Rather than returning to her home in Orlando, she chose to recover in a beachside hotel. She was visited by Dr. Diaz’s postoperative nurse to make sure she was recovering well. She was seen frequently to monitor her progress and assist with her wound care. After 2 weeks she returned to work. She gradually returned to her previous activities. She is very happy with her results. She enjoys the updated look of her breasts and the accentuated curves of her torso. She was able to look and feel fantastic for her son’s wedding.
