This is a 44 year-old mother of two who underwent a classic combination of procedures that constitute a Mommy Makeover operation.

BREAST AUGMENTATION MASTOPEXY: An augmentation mastopexy is actually two procedures performed at the same time: 1) a breast augmentation with silicone implants, and 2) a breast lift which is also known as a mastopexy. The implants restore the volume in the upper part of the breast that can be lost in a dramatic fashion after pregnancy. The loss of this volume leaves the breasts with this deflated look that gives minimal cleavage and is commonly described as “saggy”. A breast lift without implants cannot replace this missing volume, which is why an augmentation is almost always necessary for the best result in cases like this. The implant used here was a Natrelle moderate profile 397cc smooth round silicone implant placed under the muscle for the most natural look possible. The mastopexy (or breast lift) portion of this procedure isn’t always a necessary part of rejuvenation post-pregnancy breasts, but in this case it was becasue of the excessive amount of sagging, stretched out skin she had. In some women with smaller breasts and less sagging, and augmentation with an implant alone can lift the breast enough to produce a satisfactory result, but in this case an actual mastopexy procedure was necessary for the best result. If you are not sure whether you need a mastopexy at the same time as your augmentation, make sure you discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation.

TUMMY TUCK: This woman’s abdomen didn’t sustain as much damage during her pregnancies as her breasts did, but the small flap of stretched out skin bothered her for years hanging over her jeans and gym clothes, and no matter how many crunches she did, the skin never tightened up. She underwent a full abdominoplasty and a basic rectus muscle repair to remove the flap of skin and reposition the abdominal muscles back in the center of her stomach for a flatter contour.
