Every woman deserves to have a beautiful body. Having discomfort from heavy breasts or embarrassment from a hanging tummy is not a pronouncement. A tummy tuck for plus size women can achieve a renewed sense of empowerment and self-confidence.
This 38-year-old woman was frustrated with her breasts and her body. As a young woman who had finished her family, she wanted to feel young, to feel beautiful. Her heavy and uncomfortable breasts (38DDD bra) were a daily physical and emotional handicap. The hanging tummy caused her to avoid social activities. No exercise or diet she could do on her own could restore her youthful body and confidence. Her stated goal: “I want to be more comfortable with my body.”
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that will restore the beauty of the breasts and the body. The breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction were performed in one surgical session. Immediately after the breast reduction (from bra 38DDD to 38D), the pain from the large breasts was gone! An extended tummy tuck (a tummy tuck for plus sized women) corrects the muscle and inner core weakness. This restores support to the back and improves posture. Aquashape Liposuction is a gentle liposuction technique that uses a water-jet to remove fat cells. Removing fat rolls and bulges in the bra area, the waist and under the arm really helps to shape the body. Combining multiple procedures in one session has the advantage of getting more done at once, with one anesthesia. For some women, this is safe and reasonable. When there is more risk (due to smoking, diabetes, higher weight, or other medical issues) it may be safer to have two 3-4 hour surgical sessions than one 6-7hr session. Safety is always the first priority.
